And since he was off on a Friday, we got to hit some yard sales. I was sooo excited - I almost never get to go to yardsales! At one, I was followed around by a very affectionate kitty that took an instant liking to me. She was so little and sweet & reminded me of my sweet kitties when they were babies. <3 br="">3>
The watermelon mouse is a bank I paid a quarter for. So cute!
The ornaments are 70's-ish unbreakable plastic. Wish they were more like the mega-fragile 50's diorama style that I literally never ever see around here. Oh well, still cute & they'll look cute on the tree.
And the salt/pepper/sugar set was too darling for 2 bucks. I have an unintentional vignette of vintage red items inside my Hoosier-style cabinet and this set fits right in.
These are Anchor Hocking Lotus snack sets. The material they're made from is glass, but it's so thick and beige-y that it tends to look ceramic. I've never seen original packaging for these, so I can only assume that like most snack sets, they were sold in sets of 4 - a bowl and snack place each in blue, green, yellow & pink (that also photographs as a peach color, but I believe there's just the one shade in the set).
These were also available in Jadeite & Forest Green. And a couple of odd ducks - a somewhat different mold shape was available in a Peach Lustre/Copper Tint set and a single Azurite bowl (a very, very pale blue that photographs white or grey-ish) - which I'm guessing was a giveaway that would explain its lack of matching plate.
(It's amazing how much vintage glassware once contained a cheese product of some sort. Cottage cheese, pimento cheese. And if it wasn't cheese, it was peanut butter. People sure did love some cheese, peanut butter & free glassware. lol!)
And finally, this was my anxiety purchase. I say anxiety because basically anything over around 20-25 bucks causes me to hem & haw like it was my job. I tried bargaining over this piece because of a hairline crack at the top, on the bridge part that I guess would technically be considered the 'ice lip'.
It was marked Grey pitcher. I knew it wasn't grey when I saw it, because it was..........Celedon!
This lady here is a true fiesta fanatic, and she does a great job chronicling the story of the various promotional juice sets produced by Homer Laughlin China over the years.
I got it for a good price that took the damage in to account. It's currently displayed with my very, very, very damaged Medium Green disc pitcher that was a 15 dollar flea market find. Me & my scratch-and-dent Fiesta treasures. I don't mind the damage, really, so they've found a good home here with me.
Hope you are having a fantastic weekend!
