Hello! While at the thrift store yesterday I came across these vintage picture dominoes:
I don't know when these were made, perhaps in the 1950'? They're a little beat up, but I still loved the graphics! Here's a close-up:
I can see using these on a child's birthday card, but may think of other uses as well. I paid a dollar for the bag of 24.
Now on to the trick question - study the photo below and answer this: what cost more, the wire stand or the two pie pumpkins sitting on it?
So, which one did you guess? Not sure? Well, the answer is: I paid the same price - $2.50 for the wire stand and $2.50 for both pumpkins.
I don't know how old the stand is; it may not be vintage, but has a somewhat vintage design. It measures 23"h x 10"w x 7"d. Thus, not very large but I still thought $2.50 was a good price for it. I may spray paint the black finish white at some point, but for fall I like the pumpkin colors against the black.
I bought the stand at a thrift store last week, and bought the pie pumpkins this morning at our farmers' market. If they hold up okay and aren't bothered by squirrels, I will use them for pumpkin baked goods.
