Vintage Thingie Thursday - Take the BAIT!

I'm joining up with Colorado Lady for Vintage Thingie Thursday - please visit our charming host to join me and others who are showing off their vintage items today!

I've been working on my redecorating project this week - my bathroom! I wanted a new 'theme' so was browsing the tag sales and local 'whats-zis? shops', looking for more curiosities, as my oldest son calls my collections. I spied this item, and thought it looked interesting, so I brought it home, with a little help from Homer.It reminded me of one of those plastic basins distributed to new patients at the hospitals! How CUTE! It was rusty, however, and when I opened it, I asked for a discount if I did not wish to purchase the entire contents. To my pleasure, the price was cut, and they removed the dried spiders.
When Mr. Wonderful came into the room, I presented him with my find. He was so excited (as excited as HE gets, anyways) as I told him about the price cut, and also my thoughts on what it was. It was then he exclaimed "A WORM BOX!" I looked at him in total amazement...
"Haven'tyou ever seen a WORM BOX???" Oh my....there goes my 'Vintage Hospital Theme' for the bathroom... I was crestfallen. I glanced over at Homer, and it was then that I realized, Homer had known what it was all the time, but had not imparted the info unto me!
He was looking out for himself! He wanted a LUNCH BOX!
Have a great day - and I hope you will return here tomorrow, to see and/or join in on GET R DONE FRIDAY! All are welcome!

A worm box? Oh, that is too funny! Never heard of one, either!

Angela said...

That is funny! I had no idea what it was either! I have heard of worm boxes and I've seen the newer ones in fishing section but they are not metal anymore I don't think???? I think it would make a great lunch box for Homer! hehehe

Happy VTT!!!

Lol...ok..so Hubby says it is a worm box...BUT I see a container to hold the false teeth of a clown with a VERY BIG smile...
Ok...if you go to my post you will see that my mind is NOT working today...and the pictures of my vintage bear will NOT show up...hmmmmmm.......
You have inspired me...ok...somewhere in a box...at my Moms...I know she kept my Poppas false very vintage teeth...real gold in em' I believe!

LADY JANE'S EMPORIUM said...

Oh...I see how you're little mind works...YOU were thinking the clown with the big smile was ME! Well I'll have you know I have a PINK box! She exits giggling...but fearing she may have shared to much information!

A worm box? Naughty Homer, he should have warned you!
That is so funny. Glad you got a discount for not taking the spiders. You can always find spiders, and not always dead either!


Cute box, thought. :-)

Honey, what's more amazing than the fact it's a worm box is that you would buy the horrible rusty thang in the FIRST PLACE!!!

ooeeuuww! A Worm Box!
Sorry I laughed when I read that you just discovered what it really was. Wish I could have seen your expression! :)

If it's green, and if it's rusty, I always give it a second look.
A worm box would never have been a guess...huh!
Go figure!
Funny post!

LADY JANE'S EMPORIUM said...

Really...I believe after doing some research that it indeed belonged to a clown...not only ANY clown ...but a clown from the TIN TOWN CIRCUS!
REALLY...google him if you think I'm doing a lol...
He swallowed worms at the circus...actually rumor at tin town circus has it that the song "the worms go in...the worms go out" was written to honor him...so you think I'm kidding...
You think I"M the dumb one here???
Well...who bought the rusty worm box?

Marjorie (Molly) Smith said...

Don't let them pick on you like that...hehehe, I've bought worse. ROTFLMBBO...hey why not paint it and use it any how,...I would. After all I used an enema can to hold my hair brushes and a pee pot to hold my towels...giggling as I slip out the door.

Coloradolady said...

I think you could still put it in the bathroom, I really like it....stash some soaps in there!!

Have a great VTT and a wonderful weekend.
