Hello, my dear friends! I know it's been a long time, and I'm sorry that I've been out of touch. I haven't forgotten about you all. And to make my neglect up to you, I have a very photo-filled Treasure Box Wednesday post to share, overflowing with vintage goodness.
Many of these more recent treasures came from the Pottery City antique mall in East Liverpool, Ohio.
I think we'll start with these cheerful Fiestaware tumblers I found, brandishing the familiar art deco ridges that Fiesta is known for. I had found some short glasses a year or so back that were very similar to these, but I didn't know they'd made these taller glasses. Perfect for any sort of icy beverage! And they look so cute with my vintage polka dotted glasses.
Then there were these pair of hand-painted and signed rose lamps...
They may look a bit familiar to regular readers. I had, in fact, one of these already which I had bought from the Red White and Blue thrift store when there was a store across the street from Kennywood Amusement Park. (Yes, that's how long ago it was!) I had seen it across a crowded room, seized it immediately, and for the past ten years or so, it has been the lamp to which all other vintage lamps in my life have aspired. I had always hoped to find a second one to put on the other side of the Victorian fainting sofa in my dining room. So recently I got my chance...
But as you may know, in my house, it is a case of No Good Lamp Left Behind. So the one that had originally been in the diningroom, which has a slightly different base and a different sort of shade, is now living happily and dramatically on top of the wardrobe closet in my bedroom. It goes really well with the little rose painting I have up there.
Other favorite goodies of recent weeks include these wonderful little pink lidded Tupperware spice containers. They've been ideal for storing bagged spices and chicken seasoning I bought in bulk in Western Pennsylvania's Amish area...
And at the Goodwill thrift store in North Versailles, I got these very useful red and pink Tupperware storage canisters. I can use them for cat food, coffee, breadcrumbs and brown sugar. I've never seen them in red before; usually the ones I come across are in 70s harvest colors, so this was pretty exciting for me.
So that's this week's Treasure Box Wednesday. Next week I will share with you some vintage items I picked up for Christmas presents. Whee!
I hope Turkey Day was kind to you all, and that you have a great week.
