A few weeks ago, we made a trip to Illinois to visit my husband's parents after his dad had a medical procedure. We did get away for a short time to check out a sale in a beautiful red barn on the outskirts of the city. Lots of wonderful antiques and vintage items to choose from. We found these wonderful Thermos to add to our collection. They are in great condition and the prices were amazingly reasonable.
It's thrilling to find the older ones that have the cork stoppers.
My daughter and her boyfriend picked up this pretty steel Thermos with its (once again) trendy aqua lid. I picked up the plaid version at a recent estate sale.
So what does Barney have to do with Thermos collecting? Absolutely nothing. I just threw in this photo because Barney's so cute. Now that spring's arrived, he's enjoying romping in the grass and playing with his stick. Just as the toddler who would rather play with a cardboard box than an expensive toy, Barney would rather chew a stick than his red rubber bone.
Make it a great day!
