My Fair Lady

What an unusual plate! I saw this beautiful plate (much used and loved) sitting on the shelf @ Salvation Army Thrift Store. When I turned it over, I was surprised to see it called "My Fair Lady". My youngest daughter is just learning "I Could Have Danced All Night" for her vocal lessons, so I've had that song on my brain! I don't know anything about Meakin, but I love what I see.

-Mary do you have any info on this plate? They had a saucer as well, but chipped and no cup to be seen...

- notice how I chased that sunbeam onto the floor!

Jade - ite!

My first pieces of Jade - ite and I'm so excited! After months of searching through all my thrift shops, I finally had to cave in and buy from a dealer.
I've always loved this color and wanted to have at least one piece for myself. While at the Vintage Glass Show & Sale in Mississauga this past weekend, I searched out the best (and lowest priced) pieces I could find.
"Fire-King Jane Ray", by Anchor Hocking Glass Corporation, 1945 - 1963. Two tea cups and two saucers for $15. Now I'm happy...

Tupperware Picnic Set

Just in time for a Fall Picnic!

... a Flickr friend asked that I revisit my Tupperware Picnic Set. This set was given to me by my Mother - in - Law many years ago. She got it as a hostess gift for holding a Tupperware party back in the 70's. It's complete with an orange and white striped cooler bag to hold all the goodies. (easy to spot in a packed trunk!)
