I think (Secondhand) Hannah mentioned something like this on her Blog. Or maybe it was just a conversation we had. I can't remember exactly, but it seems like I walk in the front door after a day Thrift Shopping and just drop the bags to get busy doing something else, then forget all about the bags for a few days!
Well, this morning I finally got around to opening some of these "presents"!
Hah, look at all the cool stuff I found! Sometimes I surprise myself with my
Own good taste!
I can't find anything out about this little guy. It's obviously a Creamer and
designed to look like an Arne Jacobsen chair. Cool huh?!?! Wouldn't it be cool
to have all the classics in dinnerware of some kind?
More Russel Wright? I picked this up off the shelf at the thrift store just 'cuz
I thought it was a cool looking serving tray. Then I flipped it over and saw the
Russel Wright signature! Then I read the instructions and realized it was a
HEATED serving tray! Double bonus! Anybody got any info about it?
More barware. These "roly poly" glasses are in the style or manor of Dorothy
Thorpe. They're pretty cool, but I have another set where the chrome "fades" from
solid at the top to gone by the middle. But one can never have too much barware!
When we have parties (maybe four or five times a year..trying to have more) we
actually use a lot of these type of entertaining dishware. Carrots, celery,
broccoli and cauliflower on the outside with dip in the center!
This will make a great center piece for a formal dinner should I ever get around
to refinishing it and...well, having a formal dinner party! It all slips apart
so it'll be and easy refinish. Gotta get me some candles too. Don't it kinda
"Go" with the the Broyhill Brasilia?
Harkerware Stone China salad and dinner plates. Pink and Grey. The first picture
shows the color best. Weird how the camera works. Anyway...I tend to buy
anything that my gut says buy. I don't have an encyclopedic knowledge of this
stuff so (as the Franciscan Starburst near debacle has taught me) I just buy it!
