Good morning and welcome to Vintage Thingies Thursday, sponsored by my friend Suzanne at Coloradolady. Today, I'm featuring some items that are a follow-up from yesterday's post. Yesterday I talked about my Grandmother, who we all called Nanny, and one night I spent at her house. Today, I'm following that with a couple of vintage items that came from her house.
My Mom gave me the little vase a couple of years ago. I don't remember it from my grandparent's house, but was very glad to receive it. The horse is a very fragile little statue that says Texas in the green area between the legs. It always sat in her barrister bookcase along with a wonderful collection of old books. My parents got the book case, but I don't know what happened to the collection of Charles Dickens books. I can remember sitting on their back porch and reading those books. And, that's where I borrowed a copy of Ivanhoe that I used for a book report in middle school. Now, these things sit in my bookcase, along with a picture of Nanny that I've had for a very long time. I cut it to fit a small oval frame, but I saved the corners in case I ever wanted to have the picture copied. That small frame broke and the closest I could find to replace it was this much larger and gaudier frame, but hey, the picture fit perfectly!
Take care and have a great Thursday. Pop on over to Suzanne's blog and check out her glass towel rods and follow the links to all the other great vintage items people have posted.
Take care and have a great Thursday. Lane
