In April of ‘2009’ while vacationing in Virginia I bought a collection of red glassware.
This is my original collection. Mostly glasses, a pitcher, bowls, cruet, cups and saucers.
Don’t you love my old hoosier? I’m sad that I have no where to use it in our new more open home. I will use it again when we finish the basement. I got this baby for $300 at a yard sale.
Ever since then I’ve had a growing addiction. Anytime I run across a piece of red (gold) you might say, I can’t resist buying it.
In December I realized that I finally had enough to actually do a tablescape with it.
Last Friday I went to an estate sale. Guess what happened to be in the china cupboard.
Yup you guessed it, more red gold.
Now here’s the best thing. Not only was it red, but it had bubbles. It was labeled as, “60’s red bubble dishes”.
It was not a bargain price. $60 for 8 glasses and 8 saucers. The pitcher was $10 extra. At first I thought I would pass. But then I couldn’t bare the thoughts of leaving those bubbles behind. I started to think that every time I pick up a piece it’s at least $5 and I was getting 16 pieces. So do the math, not a bad deal.
Won’t they be so fun for Valentines? I did a bit of playing around with them in my metal basket.
Can’t you see a cute Valentine bow hanging down from the handle?
I tried to take some close ups so you could see the cute bubbles.
DDDid you notice my other sweet find? A turquoise oval plate for $4.
I placed it on my stove behind my vintage red and white S&P collection.
Lovin that pop of turquoise!
Well now you know the whole story behind my red glass fetish. I love red, but if it is hob nail or bubble I’m especially in trouble.
When I got home hubby asked, “Well, do I own a new estate?” LOL! I think he was pleased to hear that I only spent $73.
Have you found any treasures that got you in trouble this week?
I will be sharing my bubbliscious red with:
