Spent the day yesterday doing some antique shopping for the Overlander. As you can see from the colors, lots of turquoise, copper and silver. Here are a few pics of what we bought, a Kromex Cake Pan, two Paula Deen retro sauce pans, flamingo salt and pepper shakers, turquoise plad napkins, Lincoln Beauty Ware Canisters (incomplete set), and a Buddy Holly bobblehead.

60's stackables

While these are not vintage they are those retro colors from the 60's era, I found them at Goodwill $2.99. Stackable ceramic cups and saucers to put out on the picnic table! I will probably wrap up in a towel under the sink for travel.

Cuisenart makes one that is very Airstreamish looking.

Today is a gift, that's why they call it the present.

So far, Maria hasn't let me get one, but I've always wanted one of the old-style toasters:
