Vintage Thingies Thursday - pitcher

Hi, all and welcome to my Vintage Thingies Thursday post. VTT is sponsored by my friend Suzanne at Coloradolady.

Today, I'm featuring this great white hobnail milk glass pitcher. This is definitely vintage. It was a wedding gift from my paternal grandmother to my parents. My Mom gave it to me a couple years ago. I love this pitcher and remember many a glass of iced tea being poured out of it. I can remember it sat in our fridge when I was a kid with one of those plastic shower cap thingies on it.


The background for the picture is one of Sydney's quilted pillow shams in progress. She's letting me proceed with the blue and I'll be loaning her my purple quilt to hang in her room and we'll be adding some purple accessories, which was in the plan all along. Her walls are a light lavender color and it's going to be great, I just need the chance to finish with the background before we can start to layer other colors on top of it. She wasn't seeing my vision and now I feel like I have not only a concession, but real buy in on the project again. And she got 2 sets of purple sheets for cmas to go in there, so she should be okay on the color front.

And, a big shout out to all my new followers. I'm starting to get comments from folks all over the world. I hope I can keep this blog interesting under that kind of pressure.

Take care and have a great Thursday. We'll be huddling around the fire down here in Texas. It's blue cold and the wind chill is in the 20's. Tonight's low is supposed to be in the upper teens. I know. For most of you, that sounds like spring, but we all have our heaviest coats pulled out of the back of the closet.

Oh, and head on over to Suzanne's blog and check out all the other vintage items you can link to from there.

Wow, it is that cold there, too? At least you know how to knit and quilt, so I'm sure there is lots for you guys to cuddle up under. And believe me, Lane, your blog is never lacking in interest!

I love your pitcher too, my grandma had one of those, and I wish I knew what happened to it.

I got your email...but alas, I have gone in another direction..same shirts, different design, it may need to be trashed by the time I am finished. I hope to learn to make those blocks, but my brain is too tired to comprehend anything right now. LOL...I'm sure you do not know what I mean.....

Thanks for taking the time to email me, I have printed it off to save.

Have a great VTT!
