More vintage treasures

I have been finding some really great vintage finds lately! Today on my lunch, I stopped by a local thrift store and immediately found some things that I knew I couldn't pass up! I didn't know what this was exactly, but I loved it!
After a little Google research, I found out that this is a General Electric Baby Food Warmer. You plug it in and it keeps food nice and warm. This one didn't come with a cord, but that is okay. I am sure if I really wanted to find one I could. The pictures are just so cute!

A little boy catching butterflies in his net with his dog is in the first tray.
Two little girls in a hot air balloon with a cat is in the middle tray.
A little girl in a pink dress with an umbrella, a turtle and a duck in the third tray.
The removable tray has a cute little Eskimo boy ice fishing!
And I just love that it pink too! This would be so cute holding crafting supplies or baby stuff! What a clever idea for warming baby foods before microwaves were in every kitchen!
The instructions on the back say not to clean in an automatic dishwasher or boiling water. And if it breaks and blue liquid leaks out-watch out-it will act as a laxative! That doesn't sound appealing!
I also found a great bundle of vintage Jello molds! I just love these and can't wait to use them in my crafting. I have lot's of ideas floating around in my head for these!
Do you remember this vintage American Tourister Tiara train case? I finally figured out what to do with it!
The top tray is holding bits of ribbon, seam binding and ric-rac. I definitely need some more to fill it!
And the bottom is full of all my lace! I have found that I have a new obsession with lace. Every yard sale and thrift store I go into seems to have some waiting for me to buy!
Look at this fantasticly chippy stool! I got this for a steal at a yard sale and I think it is pretty much perfect as is. Rusty, chippy, vintage and yellow!
It works pretty smooth too. Maybe next summer I can put it somewhere in the yard holding pots of pretty plants!

Thank you to everyone for your comments on my last post. Little by little I am coming around to the fact that I am losing my house, but I am very excited to see what the future holds. You are all amazing women and wonderful friends! I hope everyone enjoys their weekend!

Trisha, I love all of your sweet vintage treasures. The little pictures are so sweet on the baby food warmer. I love the American Tourister Train Case. I wonder why, I had a set in red, the train case and one large suitcase. A gift from my parents. It server me well! I'm visiting over from Beverly's PS. Love your blog.

Love your baby food warmer. When my kids were little there were ones that had a plug (like a cork) on one side and you filled it with hot water to warm the food. They were just darling and I wish I had kept them.

I am sorry that you are losing your house but God has another plan for you-you just don't know what it is yet! xo Diana

I do remember baby food warmers... They always put such cute little pictures on the vintage baby articles. A family member lose their house and they have found a place that they like and enjoy . I'm sure you will to.
