The Party's Over, I'm So Blue

It's pretty dreary and cloudy with rain out in my real world but over at SmilingSally it is Blue Monday. You will see lots of blue if you drop by but we are all happy to share our blue! Barb at Bella Vista hosted a Rooster Party last week. I'm still trying to get around to all the party goers! Such fun shouldn't end too soon, so for Blue Monday I have a almost blue hen to share. She is resting on a lovely blue, brown, yellow and green quilt. I bought this quilt. I hope you have a wonderful Blue Monday!

Tea, dish,kitchen towels

Well Thursday is still with us for a little while longer. They are celebrating Vintage Thingies Thursday over at Suzanne's--ColoradoLady. I've seen bears, blenders, pants and pots! More to see but I must get my post up! When is a towel a 'tea' towel? And what is the difference between a dish towel and a kitchen towel? You're not going to find the answer here but I have some vintage towels no matter what they have dried. This is a cotton. I love red but red ivy? Two calendar towels and one with vegetable decor. These are linen. I have three newer (?) cotton towels that commemorate Wales and Scotland And here is a Rhode Island commemorative linen. There's two for Christmas in linen. Identical. Someone sewed them together for a runner. Happy VTT!

I'll have some of them tomorrow for VTT. A handkerchief in gray and white with lots of red roses. The red dish towel was seen last week!

Dishes with a Previous Life- Thrift Store Finds

It's Vintage Thingie Thursday at ColoradoLady. I love today and have missed posting. Since I had some time this week, I have posted Vintage almost everyday! Today I have some dishes I found at the local thrift store. The store 'Waste Not Want Not' is run by Methodist church ladies. I love the white dessert dishes. One has a scalloped edge. I found two dinner plates. The green and floral one reminds me of Grandmother's everyday dishes. I'll have to unearth the ones still left and compare. Then there's a lovely rose scalloped plate. Roses are and were very popular patterns. I must have six or seven different patterns but only a piece or two of each. That would be another VTT post!! Lastly I have a bowl with the wheat pattern. Have a great VTT and check out all the great vintage posts here.
