I'm trying to decorate the kitchen with a vintage/retro theme. I have a love affair with glass, dishes, bakeware, etc. My favorites to collect are Pyrex, Lu-Ray pastels, & Liberty Blue. When the kitchen & pantry are done, here are some of the items that I will put in them.
I love this Millefleur mug. Got it for $1.50 at an antique store.
Who doesn't love Pyrex?! I have a modest collection, I try to stick w/patterns that I love (& hard to come by pieces) b/c it's so addicting & I'd have no more room!! My balloon chip & dip, plus an extra little one.
One of my favorite patterns from Pyrex, Butterfly Gold. My mother had the Cinderella bowl set & some of the compatible Corelle dishes. Totally reminds me of my childhood.
These were free, belonged to my Great Aunt, & my brother brought them over to me yesterday!
Lu-Ray Stack, such pretty pastel colors!
Saucers & bread plates.
Not "vintage", but I thought these bowls complemented the dishes nicely.
I thought these were super cute. We had lunch at The Chicken Basket yesterday, & they recycle the pop bottles into S&P shakers. I couldn't resist them.
For the pantry, I found this crate that I love & plan to incorporate. It's in pretty good shape, no rust & the colors are still somewhat nice & bright. There's my helper (or supervisor) off to the right. <3
We went to the flea market yesterday, & I saw this! I put it in the sunroom, which serves as an annex to the kitchen. It's in great shape & I got it for cheap!
On the way back from the flea, we stopped at Good Will. Didn't really see much to get excited about, but I did rescue these. All 3 for about a $1.00.
Loved these when I saw them, Paul Revere Silversmith society candlesticks.
This was an impulse buy at a thrift store. I love the color, and I love glass...so for 30 cents I think it's worth it.
