First Rednesday...

Getting in the mood for Valentine's day....

Coffee time...!!!

My current "automatic" coffee maker... a thrifstore find. I used to have a smaller version, but one sad day it broke. I love this one, it makes me feel so "chic" when serving the coffee.

Feeling blue....

I found this blue vase? in one my huntings. It was there standing by himself in the shelf, it doesn't have any marks, so I don't know if it's vintage, but I love the color, specially under the light of the china cabinet.

My affair with Pyrex...

I love those pyrex bowls, unfortunately I just have a couple, I have no luck in that category.

I was dreaming for one of this corningware and I was very happy when I found it, but I broke the lid after a few uses, grrrh.... I still love it though.

The pics are not good... but I love those bowls!!!

My favorite find...

One of my favorite finds, if not THE favorite, it's this sort of lace-knitted tablecloth. I was looking for a handmade embroidery tablecloth with no luck, I almost gave up, but one day I woke up with that feeling, when you know you are close to something desired. I walked straight to the linens area or my favorite thrifstore and there it was, waiting for me.

I haven't give up the idea to find an embroidery tablecloth, but since I found one ( not handmade ) in my trip to Mexico last april, I'm not in a hurry, in the meantime I enjoy whatever treasure I encounter, like this tikki pitcher and glasses set, I know it's not vintage or retro, but isn't it cute? perfect for those summer days in the backyard, oh, and that red tray it is a thrifty find too.
