Old Picture, Coffee, Tea And More

This weekend going to the second hand stores was interesting my thirteen and fourteen year old nieces were staying with us and came to the stores with us.  I could not figure out why they were following me around then it dawned on me they had no money.  I gave them some money and sent them on their way.  At last I was able to look for things and found quite a lot.  Some of the following are some of those finds.

Since Halloween is coming up I thought I would share this picture from the family collection.  Once again I don't know who the people in the costume are but think it is taken in England.

This Pyrex coffee carafe found at the Salvation Army store with everything in the original box.  It's a twelve cup carafe with stand and candle holder.  It looks almost brand new.

This Pyrex teapot also found in a local second hand store.  The cup and saucer is Cremax Pyrex which is Canadian Pyrex.

This metal Jell-o mold reminds me of my grandmother who had them on her kitchen walls when I was growing up.  The first picture is the inside of the mold and the second picture is of the back.

My boyfriend bought me this pink glass flower frog.  It's the first one in pink glass in my collection.  It was found at a local antique store.
