Hello my friends. Although I no longer decorate for St. Patty's Day I certainly love having touches of green throughout my home.
And I am crazy in love with that 'vintage green' color!
I always get excited when I spy a piece at a thrift store or estate sale.
Like this beauty that I recently found.
I love both depression glass and jadite. My collection isn't large, but I adore every single piece!
I got the salt shaker at an antique moving sale on Sat. They gave it to me because it didn't have a mate. I was more than happy to take it off their hands. he-he!
These two sweet dessert cups were found while vacationing in Canada years ago. The dealer at the swap meet gave them to me for half price because he was closing up.
I bought this sweet pitcher from my friends, Aunt Bunny for $5. She said it was Vaseline glass. I had never heard of that before. It does remind me of the old Vaseline bottles.
Now here is some of my favorite 'vintage green'!
My sil, Laurie found the jadite plates for me in NC.
I had to dish out $35 for the Bauer batter bowl at an estate sale. A little more than I wanted to pay, but I knew I would be mad later if I didn't buy it.
The Jadite measuring cups were only $4. One is missing and one has a small chip. After researching them I found a set on ebay for $100.
I'll take my damaged $4 set any day.
I scored this swirl bowl for $18 on my way to St. George last Spring. It was stained inside, but I was able to clean it right up.
The teacup and saucers have the prettiest little floral pattern. I found the coffee cup and saucer at a thrift for $10. Couldn't pass it up even if I don't drink coffee.
I bought this set from Saturday finds etsy.
I found this flour shaker while vacationing in Napa, CA.
I love finding treasures while on vacation. Every time I look at them they take me back to a fun memory!
I love vintage green handled kitchen utensils like this pastry blender.
And how cute is this little oil lamp?
Who wouldn't love a 'vintage green' giant frog? lol!
I feel 'lucky' to have the small collection that I do have.
Gathered together they make a pretty green statement!
I love this vintage green so much that I tried to mimic it when we finished our basement.
It brings fun into the room!
Who knows? Maybe I'll have the
luck of the Irish and find more
Wishing you a 'vintage green' March!
I will be sharing with these lovely parties:
