Okay. I'll show you my loot now. I didn't make any big purchases on our Friday shopping trip, just a few little ones.
'Member how I saw some tart tins and wanted to buy them but they were $30 for six of 'em? Well, I held off and at the very last shop, in the basement, on the very bottom shelf...... I found a bundle of ten tart tins for $6. Woohoo!
It was funny because it was nearing the end of the day and we were both getting tired and Alex kept asking me to hurry up and I kept tellling him, "One more minute, one more minute." That's when I hit the jackpot.
For now, I made a few piles of these tins in our dining room cabinet. In a few days we're having a bbq so I might fill them with tealights for the table or line them with wax paper and fill them with different goodies for people to snack on.
In the same basement (Antiques at the Red Barn) I found a glass rolling pin with the cutest metal lid. My mom has one layered with different coloured beans and it looks really cool. I haven't decided what I'm going to fill mine with but the possibilities are endless: jellybeans, oats, beans, chocolate chips, bubblegum...... mmmmmm.
I think I've got a crush on the whole vintage-metal-kitchen-item-theme for some reason. 'Cause I also picked up two matching pie plates. They're so tiny and cute! I was really hoping there were three so I could have a little odd-numbered set. But now I have an excuse to go shopping again so it's a-okay.
I had so many ideas for the pie plates. I was going to either hang them on a tiny, narrow wall (stacked over eachother). Then I decided to put them in my dining room cabinet. Then I decided to lean them over the high window in our dining room. Then I decided to hang one over each doorway in the breakfast room.
Then. I saw this photo. I swooned, and I even hate the word swooned.

Anywooooo, I guess pie plates are going to be my new collection. So exciting! Wait a minute, is there something wrong with me? Why do I love old junk so much?
The last item in my stash of loot was this hose holder thing (from Hilltop Interiors). It's a new item but new things are allowed sometimes, too. Right now our hose has a permanent spot strewn all over the lawn. It looks terrible and I keep having to drag it around to new spots so it doesn't kill the grass. Alex will attach it to the house with concrete screws and we'll have a cute little spot for our hose to go instead of one of those plastic jobbies.
