April 30, 2012Mid-Century Libbey Continental Mugs, Turi-Design Scandinavian Dishware and a Buffalo Glass
So, I’ve been trying to take it easy on the thrifting lately because I really, really don’t want Tom to leave me. But I kind of failed a little these last two weeks.
And by failed, I mean I got some really fun stuff.
But not too much stuff. I’ve made a pledge to only by things if they are in useable shape, if they are something I’ve never seen before, something I’ve been looking for, or something I decide at the last second that I really, really want.
Which means that I am pretty much back where I was before I made the pledge.
But look at these glasses!
A set of six vintage Libbey Continental Mugs with a brass/gilt Greek Key design. These are apparently hot and cold mugs with removable handles, and I am really excited about them because I got them to go with my coffee carafe collection!
See? Perfect, huh?
Now I just need to have some people over for coffee.
Or juice, so they can drink out of this glass:
Yep! It’s a buffalo glass! From New Buffalo, of course.
And then I need to serve some food at my party, so I can break these guys out:
Two Scandinavian pieces designed by Turi Gramstad Oliver, a serving plate in the “Lotte” print and a trivet in the “Saga” print. I don’t have much dishware from Norway, but I thought these two pieces were so adorable I just had to get them.
And too serve the food, of course, these:
A really interesting set of serving utensils. I am not sure how old these are, but I really liked the look. They have oxen on the handles! It’s not buffalo, but it’s good enough.
And then more coffee, because:
A mug from the Disaster Recovery Information Exchange. Not vintage or anything, I just love the logo.
What about you guys? Breaking any rules lately? Finding some cool stuff? Let me know!
