Over at Coloradolady, Suzanne is hosting this week's Vintage Thingies party. Do drop in and visit or put up a post and join us. Thanks Suzanne and all participants. I do enjoy this day! Today I have some aluminum to show you. First it comes in funnels and measuring cups and a juicer. One cup is an advertising item for Swans Down cake flour. Then we have a water pitcher. No marks on this one. Alfalfa was kind enough to steady the pitcher. He says, " Got milk?". Then he shows us the first of two cake carriers. This one is by Mirro, the finest aluminum, made in U.S.A. 2002 M He is pointing out one of the four latches that secure the top to the base. Click on photos for better viewing. The latches are operating by a ratchet type thingie on the bottom of the base. Murphy said 'big brother' had enough of the limelight and he could do this job in his sleep. This is a Regal , Regal Ware Inc., quality aluminum, Kewaskum, Wis. U.S.A. This carrier has two latches that perform on the swivel method. Thanks for dropping by. I'll be visiting a little later.

They certainly don't make things
like they used to! You can see they
made these kitchen items to last.
Your kitties are cute models! :)

Oh I love 'em! I just found a covered cake carrier last week! Most of all, I'm in love with Murphy. He's so long and lean and grey and white, my favorite.
Thanks for sharing all your things that make us drool and need to go shopping :)

I remember when my hubby's aunt used to bring her Lemon Cake to the family picnics in one of those carriers. Great collection of aluminum!

Great pictures of your kitty! I don't know how you got him to do the pose in the last two pictures, but it's awesome! Love all of your aluminum, especially that cake carrier!
Happy VTT!

I have just about laughed myself sick over Murphy's hilarious pose. He is just snoozing away with his "arms" stretched out so funny. Both he and Alfalfa are sure dapper looking gentlemen.

Love the aluminum, too!
