This collection, with the exception of the lamps, all came from the same thrift shop with prices for the milk glass ranging from $.50 to $2 and the carnival glass was $3 for each piece. I was delighted to find such an array of shapes and sizes! Here's a closer look:
Look at all that milky goodness ;) The iridescent lamp caught my eye because it's opaque white and shimmery. It's both milk glass AND carnival glass! It also works! It has a three-way switch so the first turn illuminates the base, the second just the bulb and the third lights both the base and the bulb. AWESOME and only $10. Here's a closer look:
I'm not sure what kind of shade will compliment it. Any suggestions? The hobnail milk glass lamps will need a little makeover.
It looks like the finish has come off the metal or maybe someone tried to repaint them...not sure but they both work and I love their style :) I also scored the matching cups for my vintage Anchor Hocking Star of David punch bowl. I have pieced this set together and it all began when I picked up the pedestal --although at the time I didn't know it was a punch bowl pedestal (see it here). And in the weeks following, I have now accumulated THIS:
I so wish I would have had this for Rhonda's bridal shower! And the relish tray! How cool is that!? For $2 it needed to come home with me. The cups (16 of them!) ranged in price from 25 to 59 cents and the punch bowl was $10. Now I need to have a party just so I can use it ;)
So my last find this weekend was a signed/dated painting. It caught my eye for two reasons - the colors are fantastic and look great in my dining room and it is dated the year Dan was born - 1966.
Unfortunately, I'm no photographer and my lighting really washes out it out but it looks lovely against my teal walls! This tag was attached to the back:
The title of the painting is "Mood of a Sunday Afternoon." LOVE IT. Here's the signature:
So that's the whole haul! I hope you have a wonderful week!
