Hello, and Welcome!May I show you my latest pretties? I've always had an affection for these vintage floral glasses. My grandmother had a set of them, and so I have very fond memories of drinking out of them when we went to visit her in Virginia.

I always thought they were jelly glasses, but my cousin tells me that they actually were peanut butter jars, as my grandmother made her own jelly.
I bought this one at my favorite shabby shoppe, and I think I will enjoy pleasant memories as I sip my iced tea from it!

This tole can will go in my craft room and will probably hold my "stuffing" that I keep on hand for ornaments and pillows that I make.

I like the colors and graphics on it!
A pretty pillow cover, in soft soothing colors, at home in the living room.And of course, your hostess for today, this adorable skirt vase, picked up at my fave antique shoppe!!

Hope you had an enjoyable weekend, and wishing you a lovely week as well!

Hi Becca...I love those rose glasses! I have never seen any like that before and I don't remember them as a child either. I wonder what peanut butter company made them? The tole painted container is pretty too. The skirt vase is different....I don't think I have seen those either. It reminds me of my cinderella statue that came with my watch when I was young. You did good this week!~Hugs, Patti
