Do you love vintage?? I LOVE VINTAGE!

I have found myself drawn to vintage home accessories lately. Seems like every time I am on Etsy, I inadvertently end up searching the vintage category. Mainly mid-century modern type stuff. I've also been doing some "thrifting" around town...bought some FAB orange Tupperware last week! What type of vintage things are you drawn to?? Here are a few of my favorite vintage pieces.....

Fire King Milk Glass from my Granny and my great aunt, Madeline.

Super cool retro-atomic starburst pattern dishes (Pontesa Ironstone from Spain) that belonged to my favorite great-aunt...I have 8 full place settings and several extra pieces! LOVE these, and I refuse to use them until my kids are grown and out of the house!

Cute starburst glasses that also belonged to my great aunt. I'm kinda sad that I only have 5. I'm sure at one time, there were at least 8.

And, last but definitely not least, my beloved Tupperware! The big round divided tray was given to me by my Granny...I can remember her using it to take lunch to my Papaw when he was out picking cotton. The cutie-pie little lunchbox, with sandwich/snack containers and cup, was a thrift store find and the largest piece, which has divided, sliding trays inside came from a little vintage/antiques store in town...I'm going to use it to store beads in I think!

I know, I know...

I have been noticeably absent from this blog for the past few months. Sorry. Life happens. But, now that Fall is in the air, I feel refreshed and renewed, this being my favorite time of year, so I'm going to be updating this blog weekly! yay!
I will be giving my readers a glimpse into my studio and my everyday (crazy) life. I would like to share my favorite things with you...whether it's a funny photo of one of my children, or some fabulous vintage home accessories I found online. Oh, and there will be jewelry...lots of jewelry!
I have several Fall/Holiday shows coming up, so there are lots of new goodies in the works!
Ok, now let me go and find something bloggable.....I'll be back soon!!!
