Black And White And A Bit Of Blue For Sally

My last two weeks have been quite busy, my mom had knee replacement surgery two weeks ago tomorrow.  My sister and I were lucky my mom's cousin came out and is staying with her which makes it easier for us since we both have to work.  This means we can alternate doing my moms running around.
This post has a lot of black and white items this week with a bit of color.

We were at a local second hand store on Saturday and I came to a dead stop when I saw this old stove.  It's in the stores silent auction it doesn't work it's already priced too high for me then you add in the cost of trying to get it running.  Then you would have to build a kitchen around it way above my price range.  But I really wish I could bring it home with me.

The Hoosier is decked out in a dish set I remember my grandmother having in the 80's.  The pattern is Manitou by Grindley of Staffordshire England.

I've been finding these bar tools on different days at a local second hand store.  I'm guessing they're mid century modern and were made in Japan.

This martini glass fabric is the bit of blue my first thought was the rat pack.

I've posted this Zodiac sign chip and dip bowl set before but I think it fits in with this post so I'm posting it again.

I found this ad for Jasper Park Lodge in an old National Geographic Magazine.  I have not been to Jasper since I was a kid, I remember it was lovely.  One of these days we will point the car towards Alberta and hopefully make it to Jasper.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by.


  1. The stove is a real beauty it would be a great wedding present... enjoyed your post have a good one

  2. Oh what a gorgeous stove - my grandmother had one just like it when I was a little girl !!!

  3. Hi Denise,

    I'm sure the Rat pack would like this linen.

    I'm sorry for the pain your mom is experiencing. I've had both of my knees replaced (two separate surgeries) so I know the pain. However, tell her to do the exercises NO MATTER and she will be happy with the results.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Have a Happy Blue Monday!

  4. Hope your mom heals up well & soon. My cousin had hip replacement surgery - on both hips. She is in her 20's. She had her fake hip replaced at the end of the year last year, just being able to get out of bed, but not able to life things. She's got a lot of loved ones to take care of her, lucky that way. Lots of time to do her nails though.

    I'd really love to have one of them stoves. Seem so much more functional. Fries & chicken strips? One at 400 & one at 325? One for 30 mins, one for 15..

  5. Oh my gosh that stove is a beauty!! I wish I could find a chip and dip set like that. Great black and whites!! Hope your mom recovers soon!

  6. Hope your mom will be well soon! & that stove is glorious!

  7. My brother had a stove like that in a rental house he lived in during college and I was always SO jealous! It did actually catch on fire once, though...if that makes you feel any better about passing it up. ;) That martini fabric is so cool!

  8. Wow! Thank you for joining the fun and sharing your sweet blog at the Thursday Favorite Things blog hop ♥ Hoping your Mothers pain is relieved soon.

  9. Enjoyed seeing all your vintage finds. Trust all your family doing much better soon.

  10. I love how you post your vintage finds with a color/theme! I often find similar things at different stores on different days...this week it was mini twig chairs, last week it was metal things. I like it when it happens! :) Thank you for sharing at RL Thrifty Life Thursday!

  11. That stove and the Hoosier are just gorgeous! Wouldn't that make a fabulous vintage kitchen? I'll take the dishes, too :)
    I've never seen that chip & dip set - I have a weird love for chip & dip sets. Great that it still has the bracket, those so often get lost. Hope your mom does well with her recovery, God bless her. Thank you for sharing this at my History & Home link party this week! Take care - Dawn @ We Call It


Look forward to your kind comments.
