More Finds - Just A Couple

One of the other things I found last weekend at a thrift shop - a PINK vintage Rubbermaid dinnerware rack! (No, the dishes didn't come with it. I added some of my restaurant china, just for show. I also found the little sprinkles shaker, complete with old contents - icky. I brought it home and washed it and put in new fresh sprinkles, so it's ready for use!)
Here is the rack in a magazine advertisement from the 1950's:

I've written about my love for Ransburg a few times before. Here is one more photo of some of my pieces:
And now, for the "piece de resistance" :
A yellow Ransburg towel rack!! And it is "Practically Perfect In Every Way"! I have seen these come and go on eBay out of my price range, so I could not believe my luck when I found this at a yard sale for $4. Then again - luck? Phooey! It was meant to be mine all the time!
