Thrifty Vintage Thingies
It's THAT time again!!!! Vintage Thingies Thursday over at Coloradolady and Thrifty Thursday at Bloggeritaville.
Be sure you click on either the above icons or links to check out what everyone else is posting today.
As for me, I'm making an eclectic post - - - imagine that!!
First is a carnival glass relish tray. It was given to us as a wedding present 34 years, two weeks, and three days ago!!! Maybe not quite an antique yet, but certainly vintage.
At the time, not being a "brown" wearer, I wasn't too crazy about the color. But, over the years I have so enjoyed using it, the color has "grown" on me and I LOVE it.
Later addendum: I did some googling and found out that this is an Indiana Glass Company relish tray made in the 1970's. It was only made in gold carnival glass and it's current value is listed as between $10 - $20.
Next is a sewing case. My Grandfather built one of these for each of his eight daughters (my mom being the second to the youngest of those eight) for Christmas about 45 years ago . I left the antique rocker in the back ground so you could get a perception of size.
When it opens on it's hinges, there are dowels for spools and fabric pockets with elastic edges for sewing notions. This is going to our youngest daughter, Korie.
The next items do not belong to me, but I wanted Suzanne (Coloradolady) to see them because her little creamers in a row reminded me of these - - -
Tin cups and coffee pots that hang up near the ceiling all around the main dining room - - -
At the ORIGINAL Famous Dave's BBQ on Round Lake, near Hayward, Wisconsin.
