Needless to say, the kitchen cupboards are at full capacity. I actually have a "surplus" area in one of my basement cabinets that is holding extras. I think this might be one of the first behaviours exhibited in "early onset hoarding". ;)

That 70's Tangent ~ Thrifting Update
There has been some thrifting going on as of late. I just haven't gotten around to documenting most of it. Here's the update.
My friend Terry and fellow thrifter has gifted me with a set of the Woodland Brown hook handle tea cups (which I thought I would never be lucky enough to own) and these amazing milk glass custard cups! She is like a little thrifting fairy who knows exactly what I love!
I found this casserole in the Butterfly Gold #1 pattern. I already own it in Butterfly Gold #2 but for $4.49 at Salvation Army, I couldn't pass it up.
These retro glasses where found at Goodwill for 50 cents each. They are not my usually style as they scream out 60's to me but they are so unique.
I think they might even compliment these new glasses I bought at Ikea on the same day.
Behold the "fruit nappy"! They are hard to come by. It is not in one of the four pattens that I collect, however it compliments well. It is called "Morning Blue" and is from 1982. I see that some people mix it into the four vintage 70's patterns that I collect.
And lastly a new baking dish. It is a Termo-Rey. Love the colours and the pattern is so 70's. It is made in Brazil and many of their patterns were made to mimic the popular Corelle patterns of the time. It has no pattern name.
One more thrifty find that is far from vintage is this David's Tea mug. I recognized that pattern from David's Tea and couldn't resist the beautiful turquoise. Who would give this away? I picked it up for a loonie! Score!!
