Oooo! Check It Out! It's A Mystery Box...Spotted In The Garage...Wonder What's Inside. Status: It's A Mystery, Duh.
Weeeee....let's take a look, shall we? Surely there's something cool here.
Ha! Look at all this! This is the Jamaica Bay pattern by Taylor Smith Taylor. I have
a HUGE set of this pattern. I must have bought this just as we were moving into
this house, stuck the box in the garage and promptly forgot all about it. I really
need to consolidate all these dishes. What I REALLY need to do is go through the
D*mn Garage and do some sort of inventory! No?
Don't these just have to coolest pattern? It's all Atomicy and Tiki..y at the same
time! The Cathay pattern is very similar except with more green and with a green
accent color, like the inside of the creamer and sugar bowl, etc. So apparently I
managed to forget I had found quite a nice little haul of these dishes! 11 dinner
plates, 2 salad plates, 2 "boats" (anybody got any idea what these are for?), 7 tea
cups, a sugar bowl w/lid, a creamer and a gravy boat...not too shabby! But
wait...What else is in the box?
What the heck is in the bag? Looks like flatware. Oooo, it's vintage '50s baby blue
flatware! Wow, I remember buying this now. It was at a little antique mall near Six
Flags (over Mid America) and I almost didn't buy it. I hemmed and hawwed about it
and finally the Girlfriend said "just buy it", so I did as instructed. Only this morning
did I realize...
...most of it is still New In Package! I got all of this flatware for a measly $15!
Bargain. Again, I have a bunch more of this exact flatware over at the Bungalow.
The color so matches the Jamaica Bay. Oh, and one more little thing was in the
box. A measuring glass by Southern Comfort! NOW I can mix a Proper Cocktail!
