Strange looks

Ever get strange looks while shopping and wonder why? Do I have a bugger hanging from my nose? Do I have a bad case of bed head? There's times I wear my pig shoes and can understand the looks then, but today, I was baffled.

I found this object at the thrift shop. I immediately fell in love with the color of it and thought it must be vintage, don't see this color anymore. It's a rack, what kind of rack, I thought. I was standing there turning it different directions in my hands, not willing to set it down. Ah ha, the light went on, it's a vintage dish drainer! Yep, bet that's what it is, for a double sink and you hang it over the divider in the sink, that's wonderful! It's mine for now!
Okay, so I bring it home, go to take it out of the bag and realize it's NOT a sink drainer, it's a dish rack for inside a cabinet, I had it upside down in the store, hence the weird looks. Well, maybe.
Here is the correct way, isn't it wonderful?
You can hang cups from the hooks on the left, dishes under that part and then stack dishes on the right side! It's nice and heavy, too.

The first think I thought was Vintage Sink Drainer, with envy I might add. Then I thought about the 'old' refrigerators that had wire racks.

But, now that I know what it is, I still have envy. That would save so much space!

Lisa! I get tears in my eyes thinking about me turning this thing over and over trying to figure it out. It is neat, isn't it? :o)

What a hoot. You find the neatest things when you are out thrifting.
I love that green color.
