Funny how the definition of words changes through the years, so no, I'm not going to moon you today - that would be grounds for capital punishment - but show you instead some great recent treasures. Some this weekend, some here & there during the week. First is the estate sale I went to on Saturday which had this
This was a fun estate sale. There really wasn't much left after the family treasures had been distributed but it was definitely a little walk through time. It was a house built in the early 50's and owned by a couple who'd lived in it from day one till recently. A cozy little home where you could see they'd lived a good life, and also each era was evident from the pink 50's to the orange 60's with this
Elsewhere I found this - I'm a freak for vintage barware - it's so reminescent of days when cocktail parties meant actually wearing GLAMOUROUS cocktail dresses! I don't know if this is actually vintage but I was taken by the amathyst color and the frosted pattern (the pattern you can't really see in the picture). When I got home & was washing it I noticed a pretty etching of a bee on the lid & it puzzles me. Is it the mark of the maker or just a "pretty". If anyone knows, please let me know. There is no mark on the bottom so maybe the bee is the maker mark???
Also picked up this way cool phone from the 70's.
And these very cute, teensy-tiny salt & pepper shakers - I LOVE em - they're poodles!
And this Mitterteich Bavaria tea/coffee set
And since it's Monday morning & we're thinking COFFEE! How bout this I got from Frank a couple of weeks ago! Is this THE "star" of all percolators or what?!
So that's it for now. A very colorful weekend "booty" I'd say!
Now for that yummie cup of coffee - and believe me, these old percolators made one mighty fine brew!
Cheerio! Have a great week & can't wait to see what y'all came up with!
