As promised, this week and in coming weeks, I will share the vintage treasures displayed in this cabinet.
In one corner on the top, I showcase enamelware coffee pots. The red and white one is one that might have been used over a campfire. The other two are percolaters with the little glass "bubble" in the lid. Only the white one still has the brewing basket.
Also displayed with the coffeepots are some old spice tins, a coffee can and a can for baking powder. If you look closely, you can see the cinnamon can is marked with the price in grease pencil - only 19 cents! My husband got the coffee can filled with nails and screws at an auction. I made him find something else for the hardware and I snitched the can.
Here are a couple more tins I have, but do not display here. The Buglar cigarette case must be what they used before paper packs. Pax Solv waterless hand cleaner was used by garage mechanics, I assume. OOPS! I see some dust I missed in my spring cleaning. You can also see some upcoming items.
The last items I want to share this week are these lovely old tea towels. Unfortunately, I do not have the complete set. These hard working homemakers have fabric scraps appliqued on their skirts and bonnets. The rest of each scene is embroidery. I love their little satin stitched ringlets.
Thanks for stopping by to see my vintage thingies. Hurry over to Suzanne's place and see what everyone else has to share this week.
As always, a BIG thank you to Suzanne for hosting VTT every week.
PS - Sorry about the layout. this program has given me fits tonight. I give up!
