Vintage Thingie Thursday



It's time to share your vintage finds or treasures at Coloradolady for Vintage Thingie Thursday!

I found this two glass dish candy/condiment holder at a recent shopping trip to a Salvation Army Store. I have another one the exact same style but, with three glass dishes in it. I really like these retro/vintage pieces. Since I am collecting so many retro/vintage dishes it's fun to find other pieces to go along with them.

I really like to use these for BBQ's out on the patio. I will fill the dishes with relish, dressings, chopped veggies and other things like that.


This first picture is my contribution to "Keeping it Real". LOL Check out the mess of plastic eggs in the background! And yes, that is a duck on the table! Not to mention, a half eaten granola bar. Welcome to my world! LOL





The knob on the top is missing.



I also found these cool vintage "Tiki Tumblers". They were made in the 1950's by Siestaware. They are colored frosted glass and are wrapped in a Mahogany wood jacket. Each has a different motif going on. Sorry my pictures came out so bad.


You can't really see it, but this tumbler has fish all over it.

  2. I really like the versatility of the candy / condiment holder. I have one (with three holders) and I use it in my studio to hold buttons, old jewelry pieces etc. Funny how I never even thought about using it for it's intended purpose :-)

  3. Diane I have that same little candy holder!! But I would have never thought of using it for that. I thought about using it for jellies, condiments and stuff. Good idea for the candy holder!

  8. Diann love those condiment holders, something I don't have! LOL....I can't believe it(but I should) I found some glasses that look just like those at a Thrift on the way home. I will have to take a closer look at them. They were cool and cheap!!! (5 glasses for 99 cents). I didn't notice any decorations on my wood wrap. I'll send you photos after I take some.

  10. Hey Girl! The condiment holder is great, but I would kill for those glasses! How cool are they! And your world looks a lot like mine right now. My "ottoman" is an exersaucer and there are no less than 50 toddler-sized Legos under this couch!

  13. Good morning. I used to have those same glasses. Now where did I put them? Thanks for stopping by and being a follower. I love my old cookbooks and I see that you do too. I was going through your posts and saw that we also share the same amber glass chip and dip set. I got mine at a church sale for $1.00 last fall. I loved all your stuff so much that I am now following you to see what new finds you have and I will be joining Vintage Thingies Thursday. This looks like a fun party.

  14. I don't think I've ever seen the tiki tumblers before - those are a keeper! I love your "keeping it real" photo. If I did a photo like that in my house, I would have to call it "keeping it real scary"!

  15. Love the "keeping it real" photo!!! lol...I think we all have those photos. I so remember those glasses from my Gram's house...I grew up in the 60's and they were every day ware for us. Those and those metal glasses...so hard to hold on to on a hot day! lol Thanks for the trip to my memories! Beth
