Vintage Alphabet Party......Weeeeeeeeeeeeee!

So today is S, T and U..... but unfortunately I have no "U's" to share with you....I know, I usually get strangely creative but I have been under the weather with the "gak" (flu? cold?) and my brain just isn't it's usual wonky self....
So..... Off we go with Salt and Pepper shakers and a salt dish......
I hope the floral shakers are vintage. I inherited them from my aunt..but they are pretty!!!
Now the next item has a little story.... A good friend gave me a pretty handmade velvet strawberry and I just love it! Well, I wanted more! I kept thinking how much I would love a dish of velvet strawberries!
Well, hubby and I stopped at the last hour of my favorite flea market after a trip and there..to my surprise, was a bag of velvet strawberries! So now I have enough to fill a little dish! I love them!
For "T" I have a teaset that my Grandma brought over from Wales.... Tea for two.....


And a teapot that haunted me for 2 weeks until I went back to the thrift store to find it waiting for me.... The colors are not my usual colors but the design was so unusual and cool that I had to have it. It will be the centerpiece of our larger thanksgiving table..holding the flowers....




Here is a closeup....it has different pictures all the way around of cherubs and goddess's...so cool!



And if you are going to have tea, you have to have bisquits...(the english refer to cookies and crackers as bisquits) so here are some tea and bisquit tins....I have way too many, these are just a few! (sorry the pic is blurry!)



Well, I hope you enjoyed your Vintage Alphabet tour....If I had some, I would share vintage undies (I love vintage slips and bloomers and pantalooons!) (My mom's bloomers were made from old feedsacks! shhhhh! don't tell her I shared that with you!)
And I would have a couple of vintage umbrella's---I love old parasols!
Hope your week starts off wonderful! karen......
