Have you noticed the old vintage silver-plated teapots are available at almost every thrift shop or consignment shop around?I have and it makes me sad. Most people today would never use such a SET.Even if they drink TEA.
I am guilty as I put that BAG right into the CUP!HORRORS, I know…………
So, I happen to see this service at a local CONSIGNMENT SHOP for about four months.IT spoke to me but I do not have a flat surface left to display it on.I really only wanted two of the five items………I like silver vessels for purposes other then what they were meant to be intentionally used.The shop wouldNOT split up the SET.I understand that ,and do BELIEVE in it, so I was okay with purchasing the entire SERVICE!
Now where I put it might SURPRISE YOU!
OH DEAR………in this photo you see my light BLUE tub.Thats another story for another day!It’s cast iron and six feet long and was CHEAP!The ITALIAN HUSBAND made me do it!Ruined my entire VISION for the BATHROOM!AS I said, another POST another day!
The TEA SET works here perfectly…………..bobby pins, nail files,make-up pencils,lipsticks everything has a HOME in my DIVINE RED velvet box.Which sits on top of a cute little three drawer bit.
Consider SAVING one of these sets the next time you pass one.It would be great in the kitchen too with utensils for the table.I assume YOU still SET a TABLE for meals?I know times are changing and I am barely keeping up……………I am VINTAGE you know.55 in JULY.
SPEED LIMIT AGE.
Same day as that DARLING PRINCE GEORGE.
I do think they will have a little GIRL this time.What are the chances that this little girl might be called ELIZABETH?That would be the BEST GIFT of ALL…………….as that is MY given name.
Here we are four months away from the DAY of my BIRTH and I am already talking about it.Let’s change the subject…………..
LOOK what I saw at the SAN FRANCISCO FLOWER & PLANT SHOW.
I think I may need to make this GARDEN GODDESS for my backyard……….
Can you make out her face?Then her body and hair are branches and flowers………
A SPRING GODDESS…………………we shall call her.
I found HER worthy of the entry fee.I bet that MAGICAL MISTER PAUL over yonder CLICK HERE could whip her up in NO TIME!
DON’t forget I will be HERE:
SELLING MY WARES………….visiting with other DIVINE people.
You MUST STOP by and say “CIAO BELLA” if you are in my neck of the woods……….
This show is one of the BEST!
This VINATGE CONTESSA is having TECHY problems with HER SUBSCRIBERS so I would suggest if you have found me by some MIRACLE to re-SUBSCRIBE on the LEFT side bar.Otherwise, those of you that follow BLOGLOVIN should find me there.However, I did it and since I am Not to adapt at this kinda stuff I have my doubts!You can always GOOGLE me every two weeks or so to see if YOUR VINTAGE CONTESSA has written a NEW POST!Needless, to say this has upset me,but if you spread the word and re-SUBSCRIBE perhaps I will be back in BUSINESS.
I keep telling myself it’s just a little blog………GOT my HEALTH and my FAMILY all is GOOD.
YOUR VINTAGE CONTESSA………..XO
