South Dakota things that migrated to North Texas

Fortunately I have an amazing mother, without her I don’t know where I would be. She thinks about me often, and especially thinks about me when she hits up a thrift store. Last year we lost a family member, my mother drove my grandmother, uncle, and aunt from North Texas to South Dakota.

While there, they hit up a few thrift stores, she kept me in mind while hunting for things to add to her vintage hat collection. Here are a few finds she discovered for me! 

 This soap dispenser is just to die for. Probably something out of the 70's or 80's it adds a nice little touch to my kitchen, and makes the soap a little more accessible.

 This is a very nice salt and pepper set, with what I think seems to be another container for creamer.Housed all in a cute little wheelbarrow. My mother said that her grandparents used to have one just like this. Now it sits in the window seal in my kitchen.

This is one of the cooler vintage things I own. This also made the trip back down to Texas. So many people just don't understand the integrity that these old appliances had. To think that your modern day blender you have to replace every couple of years, and yet this one is 40 years old. It has its own spot on my counter top and it gets used often! 
This is a really cool cork board that made its way down highway 35. It now hangs on one of my kitchen doors and houses photos that I have picked up over various garage sales of the ladies of the 1950's. I cant stand when people throw out pictures of their past so maybe I can take a moment and treasure these things!
