A Tisket, A Tasket

A tisket, a tasket
A brown basket

Wait, I think it says something about a green and yellow basket. Oh well, at least I had some fun thrift store finds this week.


Wooden picnic basket made by West Rindge Baskets in New Hampshire for $2.92. It is just in OK condition, since it has a broken splint in the front and the lid is missing a few nails. But I thought it was cute and springy.


A silverplated serving dish for $2.00.


A silverplated footed bowl for $1.00.


Silverplated forks made by Winthrop for 25 cents each.


OK, I admit it. I have a silver problem. I'm pretty sure I can kick it though. Maybe tomorrow.


Did you notice that I drug out my Daffodils again. Thought I'd take advantage of them while I can.


I'm joining Tales from Bloggeritaville's Thrifty Thursday, No Minimalist Here's Open House Party and Blue Creek Home's very first Treasure Hunt Thursday.

  1. Love the basket- have a little thing for them :).
    But my heart beats fast for tarnished silver and this is in just the right stage for me :).
    You are going to polish it, aren't you? You know that's an unending battle.
    Cool finds and I never tire of daffodils. I am posting mine every chance I get.
    Happy evening- Tete

  8. You always find the best deals! Hey, how about painting that picnic basket in your "turquoise" paint? That would look great!! (Or another color, to hide the discrepancies that you wrote about!) I am planning to spray paint a big handled basket I have for Spring that doesn't look that great in its original state... as soon as the damn weather gets better over here to go outside to spray paint! :)
    Best,
    Gloria

  11. I have that very same basket. I used to hide my answering machine in it because I thought it looked ugly on my counter. Now it's in the phone so no need to hide. Check out my blog posts this week. I have a very easy way to clean that silver.

  17. Fun finds! I love the pattern on the forks! I'm a sucker for silverware from that era. And I actually have the covered serving dish. Got mine for a wedding present in 1973. It has a divided glass insert inside.

  19. First things first....thank you for linking to my Thrify Thursday party today! What great finds! I oo have a silver weakness, esp if there is a monogram or a name of where it came from on it. LOVE your finds!

    Have a great day!
    Live (really LIVE)* LOVE (deeply)* Laugh (alot)

  20. What great finds for super cheap. And I love the daffodils, they are such a happy little flower, they have that ability to cheer you up.

  21. I just adore picnic baskets! That is a beautiful one and looks like one my parents used to have. What fun finds. If they had applied a little elbow grease to the silver pieces they could have gotten a lot more for them - aren't you glad they didn't!
    Have a great weekend!

  23. Oh Pam....that silver serving dish...mmmmmmm....yep - I can't say that I'm bad when it comes to silver, but I do enjoy a few pieces....now, when it comes to Karrie - she's been known to clean out a whole flea market full of silver :)
    Have a great day!!

  24. Wow, I never get jealous of other people but I came close with this blog. Apparently we have the same taste. I collect picnic baskets and have that same silver serving dish. I'm also trying to pick up utensils for my daughter to repurpose. I haven't seen prices that low! I admire you (it's better than being jealous).
