Taste of Vintage

I'm quite excited to participate in a new party today ... Vintage Thingies Thursday at ColoradoLady. Click on the picture button below to be wisked away to the fun!

If you're new to my blog ... welcome! If you're not, you won't be suprised at the su-weet stuff I got/couldn't pass up this weekend at GW.

Behold, Lemon Federalist.

Creamer ... you had at me "yellow".
And I know you didn't think I'd pass you up, sugar bowl.

Gravy boat, gravy boat.

These pieces, Japanese Ironstone, were manufactured in the 70's and sold at Sears. Now, I get to enjoy them ... the perfect punch of summer color before autumn really sets in!

Hope you enjoyed the bright pieces I scored this weekend. Please take some time to visit previous posts, grab my button, and become a follower. I've got a 100 post giveaway coming up very soon!
