Good Tuesday Morning!
I hope you're all having a good week so far. All is well here, we are in the midst of day 3 of a big ol' early summer heatwave so I'm staying inside where it's nice & cool for now. Soon I'll venture out to water the flowers & veggies, but now it looks like a quick thunder shower may save me from that task!
This past Sunday, I spent a few early morning hours at The Elephant's Trunk Flea Market. . . back to my Sunday Morning Routine. It was hot. Very hot, and I kind of lost my mojo a bit because of that. I also hit a few Estate Sales last week, one was in Bridgeport Connecticut, two homes, side by side, two sisters who had lived there, their entire lives. I'm telling you, it was amazing. These two gals are soulmates of mine for sure. They saved EVERYTHING from the time that they were little ones, right on up to their death at a ripe old age. I only wish I had met them because I know they could tell some wonderful stories.
One of the houses had more than the other, so most of my time was spent there. The sad part was that once the Estate Sale was over, the remains were being hauled away with the structures, to make room for new construction. . . . . . .ugh. I made it my business to rescue as much as I could. More than I could carry. There was a fellow working "attic duty" who took 3 trips downstairs with stuff for me. . .
Isn't this one pretty??! It's Glasbake from Jeanette. Just a simple rectangular baking dish, but I'm loving those Cornflower Blue Pinwheel Flowers!
This one is much more common, also Glasbake from Jeanette, but I love it. A simple casserole dish, vintage 1960s or early 70s, most every household in America had one of these, or something similar.
My favorite find of the day! The Fire King Prayer Mug in Red & White. There were a few of these, but the others were broken. Wouldn't this be fun in baby's vintage nursery for q-tips or cotton balls? Love it!
I did a little research on Pyrex. I'm not a collector, but I may become one now. I couldn't find a name beyond "tulips" for it, but I love it, and that blue is luscious & lovely!
Speaking of luscious & lovely blue, I love this style of chenille. Vintage cotton with chunky tufts of cream chenille and ruffled sides . . . . .oh be still my heart!.
These two sisters were stylin' back in the day. Something tells me that if I had known them, we'd have become fast friends for sure. . . I'll be back to show you more from these two gal pals soon!
Talk Soon . . . . . xo P
