Vintage Finds: Hi Ho Cherry-O!

I picked up a vintage juicer the other day for $1 at a garage sale.

(And no, I don't juice my own oranges, it would cost me about $30 for a quart of orange juice!  Ha!)

Instead, I noticed what a perfect spot it was to keep my brooches...
I only have a few, and this is the perfect spot to keep them.  This beauty, I found here. 

Pretty darn cute, too, if I do say so myself!

Have a great day, you sweet cherry-o's!  I have to can some tomatoes; either vegetable soup or I may try to can tomato soup for the first time.

PS:  I always have one brooch that likes to fall off my jean jacket, and I've almost lost it several times,  and if you have any tricks for making those pin backs function better, I'd love to hear them.

Great idea! I love that shade of green. Nice!

What a good idea! I have a juicer just like this. I have a big collection of depression glass and a few pieces of Vaseline glass, mostly all inherited from my great aunts and mother, who got them as "premiums" when they attended the "picture shows", Mama said. I love, love, love vintage kitchen things.

Pretty cute juicer. I've never seen one like that before. Have a great day canning!

Wish I knew what to do for pin clasps. It's very frustrating. The juicer and the brooch are adorable.
