REDNESDAY: Flea Market Finds and BBQ's

Hi All :) I hope you're are having a great week! Perhaps getting in some good ol' fashioned BBQ's and picnics with your family?

The Flea Market was a bit less than  "Fabulous" this past weekend. But I still bought a few cute things! I got a great start to a vintage cookbook collection. AS IF I need another collection of anything!

I really love this little "Betty Crocker Out Door Cook Book". It's got cute illustrations, and great tips.

Fish Fry at the Shore?

Or Corn Roasted in Foil?

I'll take any form of BREAD! Hot Bread in Foil with Garlic Butter!

***Could my pics be any worse? I'm sorry! I'm a "night person", and this is how your pictures will turn out  if you don't have day light on your side!

I also found these cute iced tea glasses! I paid $3 for 4 of them. When I got home I did my research, and found them on EBay, but they aren't that cheap! haha They were made by "Federal", and I'm on the look out for several more.

I can't seem to do a post lately without including some PYREX. The red fridgie was (finally) at the flea market! And the Butterfly Gold bowl was a sweet gift from my dear friend Jill of "A Little Bit Of Everything"! Her Pyrex collection is pretty amazing, and so is her talent for finding vintage treasures!

Lastly, I must show you my other find from the flea market...

This JUMBO coloring book is by "Whitman" of course, because they published the cutest things ever! The gal was asking $5, but she took $3. The front and back are the same, and perfect for framing!
Look, the train even has a sweet face! I can't stand how cute it is. These are the kind of things that get me into trouble. I can't pass them up. Ahhhhhh!

Here are some of the cute pages...

Pretty sweet huh?
