Metal, glass, thread and linen

Thanks to Suzanne at Coloradolady for hosting Vintage Thingie Thursday. Please visit. I found these nut grinders in a Etsy shop. I would love to know more about them. The shop had a collection of crocheted potholders. I love the different patterns. The fan I already had but it fits right in with the collection. The heavy cotton tablecloth is a rectangle. I didn't measure it but probably 48 X 60. I included it in today's post because the colors looked good with my potholders! :) The next two items are finds. One I picked up at the local thrift store run by the Methodist ladies. The other one was left at the swap building at the dumpster site. Two little horses .

I love the grinders. I beleive they are nutmeg grinders from the 1920's-30's. Your collection of potholders are lovely. Thanks for sharing all of your goodies with us, Sherry

Everything is so charming! I never knew there were nut grinders, those are so much fun.

Happy VTT,

You seem to have a matched set of kitchen items, since the colors match they must have come from that same era!

The grinder in the middle is a nut grinder. My mother had one, and I do too. I haven't seen ones like the other two before.

I love your collection of potholders. How great that the colors all work together, I have a grinder like the one on the right, but I have never seen any like the first two. Now why would anyone throw away that darling pink horse???

Oh my oh my I just love all these little tresures! I could make lots of pin cushions with all these lovelies:)
My sewing room isn't all that big; its about 14X17 which really is pretty small for a "studio" but I'm thrilled to have even that. If you go to the post below the "give away" you'll see how it came about:)
Thank you for stopping by!
