Vintage Thingie Thursday

I love going to Goodwill, looking at all of the things and remembering when I had the very same things. Sometimes I wonder what I was thinking and it's weird that those very same items are considered vintage or the dreaded antique.

I saw this item one afternoon and picked it up and really wanted it but couldn't decide where I would put it. So in a rare moment of being aware that I didn't need to have everything that I want at GW, I put it back. Then I came home and read blog after blog about monogram things and I knew I made a mistake by not taking it home with me when I initially saw it.

Several days later I went back to GW on a mission - to find that thingie! What was the chance that it would still be there? Certainly someone else would have scooped it up. I searched and just when I was about to give up, I found it!!

It was all tarnished but I loved it anyway and didn't care if I left it tarnished or not. So here is my vintage thingie..not sure what you would call it. I don't have any specific plans for it but I love it....

I decided the M stands for "Mom."

Check out all the other Vintage Thingie Thursday over at Suzanne at Colorado Lady.

Maybe it's an ice bucket, and maybe the "M" stands for "Me" or "Mine" (just joking).

Yeah, it might be an ice bucket. Is it reflecting the counter in the first two pictures? Wondered because it looks so different in the last two. Love the new header picture!

Just FYI, your link in Mr. Linky goes to an April post.
I think the M stands for Magnificent or Marvelous!
