Antique Store Adoption

Happy post-Thanksgiving to all.  I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday celebration.  I was still enjoying the leftovers on Saturday, but decided to call it quits when I ran out of my broccoli cheese casserole.  My hand is healing nicely after a knife wound I accidently inflicted on myself while trying to remove the foil from the top of a wine bottle. Note to self: In the future, use a foil cutter thingie or just skip this step altogether.  It's always something....at least I got out of dish duty.

I was hoping to get in some good yard sale therapy this weekend, but no such luck. Instead of the yard sales, I got re-acquainted with some of the goodies I found at an antique store a couple of weeks ago.  It was almost like discovering them for the first time.

 What do you get when you cross a sweet little metal tray.....

 and a funny looking metal sculpture thing?

 You get this cutie patootie vintage TV tray.  

 The tray slips through the metal slats on each side.

 It even does what any good TV tray should do; it folds up flat for easy storage.
What could be better than one sweet little TV tray?

Twins!  I spotted the first one set up and loaded with dishes; the price tag was for the pair.  What pair?  After a quick look around, I found her sister folded up and all ready to come home with me.  I'm convinced they were such a bargain because the dealer thought a little rust was a bad thing.  I would have bought the entire family if they were available, but I'm happy to have these two cuties.
