It's Vintage Thingies Thursday again! Sponsored by Suzanne at http://coloradolady.blogspot.com/2009/08/vintage-thingies-thursday-sweet-little.html.
Okay, again I wandered through the house looking at things to post. There is just so much to choose from. So, I decided on my little set of kitchen tools. The mixer came first with it's bakelite handles. I've had it for about 28 years. Then, when we were first redecorating the kitchen, I stumbled up on the other matching tools at an antique shop, at a rediculously low price and I snagged them up! Rob got me the rack for Christmas one year to display them.
This old vase came from my Mother. It is from her parents house. It's pretty beat up and I don't know what it's made of. It's very light weight and the glaze has taken a beating. The story goes that it always sat next to the fireplace in my grandparent's house for them to drop matches in. My grandfather had a thing about fire, but my Mom didn't know if it was because he'd had a housefire when he was younger or what caused it. Anyway, it's gone from the floor at those previous addresses to the top of a table at my house. it's very Egyptian, though my photo doesn't do it justice.
And, these are the teacups that we painted on our vacation. No, not vintage but we're rather proud of them. See how nicely they match the teapot? Sydney's chinese characters are on the left and Rob's fall leaves are on the right. Can you guess who painted the one in the middle?
Y'all take care. I spent a family night in the sewing room messing with the computer, so no sewing room tonight. Tonight I'm going to start a new pair of socks. Finished the last pair last night while waiting on software to install. I'll try to post a pic of them tomorrow. They're going to require just the right shirt and pants.
See ya round the internet. Lane
