Well it’s going to be short and sweet today guys.

I’m heading to the Nashville Flea Market, whoohoo!!



I have a simple display for you today.

An outside of the box idea.

vintage ephemera displayed in an old rusty toaster 



I purchased the vintage toaster at the Nashville Flea Market about a year ago.

I had to ask the vendor what it was……I had no idea….. I just knew I liked it

I mean it was rusty right!

I took it home and it’s set in various places in our living room.

This past week I started de-cluttering my house.


When I’m shopping for the booth and for furniture to paint I only buy things I like.

That’s kind of bad because then I want to keep everything.

So occasionally I have to go through the house and get rid of some stuff.

I was going to weed out the toaster but I don’t think I’m ready to part with it yet.



I don’t remember where I picked up the 1950 Ladies Birthday Almanac.

I wasn’t even born then Smile


An old black and white photo would look cool in the toaster too.

I just didn’t have time to hunt any down.

Boy, I think this is a clever idea.

What do you think….corny….or cute?

    I think it’s very cute! You could put vintage sheet music in there also. We had a toaster similar to that at our cottage in Michigan when I was growing up. It belonged to a great grandma. Hope you are having a great day at your favorite flea market~~~can’t wait to see what comes home with you :0).

    I WAS born in 1950. I will be 63 next month and I don’t remember those toasters. I do think it looks very cute in the toaster but maybe you should find a book from another year!

  4. Very cute. I love it- great idea to display vintage ephemera in it!
