~ Kitchen finds... pink elephants, pie plate and a random apron...


I have been so tied up with work and family issues... that I am not getting to hit up the sales, I wanted to get to recently. But I have a few odd misc things I have picked up over the last couple of months to show off...

I love the vintage pink elephant stuff. And it is still extremely plentiful and easy to come by. These are both duplicates. But the kind of kitchen items I don't mind having extra's of them.


The pink elephant carafe is made by Cory. With the black bakelite looking trim and lid. I am thinking I have 4 of these now. They hold around 14 oz. of fluid.


I have at least two of these sweet pink planters shaped like a elephant. They look and feel like McCoy. But unfortunate they are not marked. Yet they are vintage pottery.


This just breaks my heart. There is a odd crack on this pie plate. It has not broke all the way through. Kind of like a stress crack. 


It was made by Household Institute and it is their pattern Rhythm Rose. I figure I could use it as a fruit bowl. I tend to have lemons and oranges on hand and keep them sitting on the counter in old cream soup bowl. Now they will reside in this pink rose plate...

And lastly I have a wonderful vintage apron...


This lovely apron is one of the better styles for daily use. This style was made with the big pocket that was the width of the apron.


The trim color looks green in person. But has came out looking more turquoise in the pictures.

It is in decent shape. No tragic stains or wear or tear. And looks cute on too!

Be sure to check out all the amazing finds at....

Pink elephant stuff is great! I love carafe. I have yet to find anything affordable that wasn't chipped (only affordable things were shot glasses, but they all had little tiny, tiny nips out of them - NO WAY!).

Oh wait, I have a set of New Years paper coasters from Hallmark (I think) with pink elephants dancing & greeting card. But yea, I think we're talking about glassware here ;).

That is the problem with collecting. It starts off so innocently.

Just going to purchase some cute vintage stuff for the kitchen.

Then you end up with tons of it. Boxed and stashed in all the cabinets and closets in the house. :)

It is why I had to get real picky about what I buy. I just lack cabinet space. If I could just squeeze in some more kitchen cabinets.... things would be great!
