I seem to collect thrifting finds along a theme…and this time it’s a saladscape! lol Everything I found this week lends itself to serving a salad! And…a long-wished-for vintage find is the star! Can you spot it?
Our co-host today is our own handsome man…Baby Kitty…who is giving me a strange look because he doesn’t think that saladscape is a word! Hey…we are scaping everything else here in blogland…why not salads?
Of course, that means that you must have a salad bowl, so I took one that I already had and added it to this old silver server…instant fanciness! And the server only cost $2.52! I really like the way this transforms the bowl!
To serve the salad, I am using some old silverplate serving pieces from a previous Goodwill hunting score for $1.00…which included a coin silver spoon that I showed you in a previous post! The green bubble glass goblets came from the clearance aisle at Pier 1 last spring.
I am also using my mom’s green depression glass butter dish and a vintage roll cover from an earlier thrifting trip, as well as these lovely old silverplate butter knives…
…that were mixed in with this collection of old silverplate flatware….only $9.99 for the lot!
Now I am only one random dinner fork short of having a service for eight in mismatched silverplate flatware!
I love this find…seven Pier 1 bowls for $4.54! I will use them as salad bowls, since I didn’t have any really pretty ones!
My sweet blogger buddy, Claudie from Bubblin’ Over gave me these plates! Aren’t they gorgeous? I got to meet Claudie and her friend Juli from Juliology this week while they were visiting all the way from Canada! They were staying with CC Catherine at Catherine de thé Cups, who invited me to go junkin’ with them! We had a so much fun!
But the absolute star of my saladscape is this…a vintage castor set!! Isn’t it wonderful? I have been admiring them for a long time, but couldn’t afford one. Then my sweet neighbor Joyce ( you might remember her from my ink well post) found this one for me for…you will not believe it!…$20!! Woooo hoooo!! Major score! It even has all of the tops…which is not always the case.
There are etched glass cruets for oil and vinegar with two different styles of glass stoppers…lovely!
And there are salt and pepper shakers…notice the two different shapes…gorgeous!
And finally, there is a mustard pot…amazing! You can really see the etched glass in this photo.
And just look at the detail in the handle! Is it not the prettiest thing you have ever seen?
Ahhhh! I think I have died and gone to heaven! I finally have a castor set of my own! Can you tell that I love it? lol
Baby Kitty thinks I am a silly girl…but I’ll bet that you understand!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you’ll stay for some (imaginary) salad before you head off to the bloggy parties! Then please visit these wonderful ladies and their beautiful blogs to see what they are up to and to find a list of this week’s participants!
