    Oh yippee, I’m zeroing in on those Art magazines! I would love to find a stash of vintage magazines like that, and the article by Noguchi is like an added surprise. Very cool finds. These estate sales always make me think about the people who owned this stuff- what interesting lives they must have had. It’s kind of romantic in a way. Well I’m glad their items found a loving and discerning home with you and Rob.

    By the way, you don’t like mustard?? Wow!

    What wonderful Pyrex purchases you made. The modern Pyrex is very expensive here and so boring (plus it seems to break, crack or chip quicker that the old Pyrex did). Must have had a takeover where they are now relying on the name rather than quality to sell their goods, such a shame.

    Popular Mechanic mags are wonderful, its amazing the articles that they have. I pick them and National Geographic up whenever I can find them on charity stalls.

    Thanks for the visit.

    Wow, great stuff! I really like the little box….really pretty!

    Bazu, we often wonder about the people who owned the items too. It’s really interesting when you find items stashed inside a book, like a postcard, or letter. It’s like an extra glimpse into who they were. I also often find ticket stubs to school performances or raffle tickets used at bookmarks. It’s so fascinating.

    And yep, I’m not a fan of mustard. I’ll use dry mustard powder in recipes, like uncheeze recipes, but as for just putting it on something and eating it, no way LOL Occasionally, I’ll eat something that contains Dijon mustard, if the flavor isn’t too prominent. Rob is totally different. He loves mustard and has several varieties of it in the fridge.

    Looks like you found some really great items and at a great price too! The Pyrex is really pretty. I wonder what happened? Why did they stop making such fun patterns and designs?

    Excellent findings! 🙂

    Those are great items. I have a friend that used to own an antiques shop and she loved finding old family photos in the items she bought because she felt that it gave her insight into the former owner’s lives.

    Emmy, what finds, again, as always! Those Art magazines are so super cool! The MS cookbook must be quite interesting. I never saw her show and probably am the only person in the world who doesn’t know a lot about her, but i’ll bet the book is informative!

    That’s a great box with the lid. Total retro.

    I totally know what you mean about odd smells… it’s one of those things that i remember from going to garage sales with my dad when i was a kid…

    s*c*o*r*e on the 1995 Martha Stewart Cookbook! i’d be thrilled about that one — and of course grandmas’ gift…cute deer.

    Nice finds!

    That bowl and the box both look so cute.
