Vintage Aluminum baking pieces are making a come back in a big way. I have fond memories of the aluminum pans my Mother and Grandmother baked with, the aluminum pitcher and glasses that my Aunt served her special sweet tea and lemonade out of.
I pick up odds and ends of bake ware at thrifts or garage sales when I can spot them. Believe me, what use to be easy to find is getting harder to locate or pricier to collect.
Sooo....when I saw these lounging in a box marked 1.00 each, I did the happy dance, while sashaying sideways to get to the box before ANYONE else saw these....
I was shaking and twitching...the lady running the sale asked me if I needed to use the bathroom.
I am serious!
This pitcher is the exact same Ware Ever that my Grandmother had! It's a little beat up, but the sweet tea and lemonade won't mind a bit.
Better yet, I smiled sweetly and asked if she would take $5.00 for all of it. She probably thought I was going to spaz out right there. (for the record, I do usually contain my excitement when I find something fantastic...but sometimes I can't...this was one of those times)
I know there were people talking behind my back as I tripped to the car.
