"Vintage Thingy Thursday"



Hi Everyone and welcome to "Vintage Thingy Thursday" hosted by the lovely Suzanne at Coloradolady.

My "Vintage" for the day is a set of 4 tall Hi Ball glasses. They are frosted with gold and silver stripes on them. They have some wear and tear to them but, I still love to use them when I am doing a table with golds or silvers. I bought them a few years ago for our Christmas table setting. I got all four of them them for $2.00.

Here they are hiding in the china cabinet.

Back in the china cabinet they go. Speaking of my china cabinet. This cabinet, besides needing some serious TLC and a facelift, was handed down to me from my mom. I'm not sure where she got it. I love the original key. Don't you love these old keys?

Now head over to Suzanne's Blog and check out all the other Vintage thingies being shown today!

  4. Those lovely gilded glasses bring memories of early days of our marriage, when we two would be invited to another couple's house for dinner, and we'd DRESS for the occasion. I can smell the scent of Arpege, feel the texture of the frosted glass in my hand, taste the unfamiliar bourbon-and-Coke, be that twenty-something again, just with the sight of those familiar glasses.

    What a lovely memory-kindling this rainy morning!! Thank you for this and for dropping in at Lawn Tea.

  9. Love those glasses; do people even drink high balls anymore? I remember learning to make them for my grandpa and uncle.

  10. Love those glasses! They remind me of a shorter set that my Mom has, with the frosted glass, but it has gold leaves on them. I would love to snag a few of them from her! Love the old cabinet too!
    Happy VTT!
