I'm linking to The Thrifty Groove today with some definitely thrifty finds from my local thrift store. Everything pictured cost $1.75 (excluding tax). Even I can afford that.
I bought the book to go on display in my patriotic bedroom. The scarf is in great condition and a Vera design. The dessert plates were manufactured by Vernon Kilns of California. They look like something my grandparents would have owned. That kitchen prayer plaque is not something I would usually buy, but I have seen them sell on Etsy so why not?
The book looks great in my room. And here are some recipes I won't be trying: liver dumplings, tongue with raisin sauce, breaded frogs' legs, eel with green sauce... There are some "normal" sounding dishes: potato soup, cherry tart, pancakes in orange sauce, chocolate mousse, but since it's living in my bedroom, I'll probably never think to look at it when I want to try a new dish. Us artists types do impractical things like that for the sake of design.
Have a nice day-- practical or impractical, whichever you prefer!
