The Haunting of the Strawberry Towel

This is the last of my "catch up" posts from my past two weeks of working like crazy.  That translates into the random post with the odd single item finds I pulled together during my limited thrifting opportunities here and there. 

Quite an odd collection isn't it?  The Pyrex orange and lemon juice pitcher was an early birthday gift from my grandma.  I found the four quart Early American mixing bowl for a mere $2 at an antique store as well as the bizarre fork like thingy and strawberry print 1966 towel.  The egg beater was a find courtesy of my dad that he picked up for $2...Woohoo! Go Dad! Finally, the blue mason jars I got for a dollar each at the flea market monday morning along with some unpictured pennants from the mid seventies from various tourist destinations.  All in all, I don't think I can complain.  

By the way, that towel had been haunting me for 4 months.  Isn't that pathetic?  Ever since I saw it there, I kept thinking about it.  Trying to figure out why it appealed to me.  Deciding whether it was worth the $3.  I finally caved. 

Ohhh, and I almost forgot this lil guy.

I picked this up at Goodwill for five bucks.  It always makes me nervous buying appliances and electrical items there, but I got it home and it works beautifully.  After I took some time to clean it up, it turned out to be a pretty good purchase.  From my research, this model was made from 1957-1967.
