Friday Finds #22: Vintage Edition

February 6, 2016

Hello and welcome to another Friday Finds! I've been stockpiling some goodies for a few
 weeks as I've not had the time to create a round-up. 
But I've chosen a few of my most recent favorites to share with you today.

First off, I have another piece of vintage celluloid bakelite flatware. This time it's a cake server. 
And it only cost me 52 cents (Salvation Army).

I'm not sure why but I've become enamored with the buttercream color. I started off with a set of vintage steak knives, also from Salvation Army, and now I'm always on the lookout. I also have a set of vintage celluloid silverware. This piece says "Fleur de Lis Made in USA" on the back. I've seen ones like it for sale on eBay and Etsy for around $10.00.

Next up, in keeping with the kitchen theme, I also picked up two vintage Planters Punch drinking glasses, for $1.56 each (Salvation Army). Apparently, Planter's Punch is a classic rum drink, supposedly originating in 1878. Who knew? They're made by Federal Glass and are probably from the 1970's. I've seen them selling for $9.00-$10.00 each.

I'd be happy to sell them for $20! In the meantime I'll just put them with the rest of my vintage barware collection.

Another item that I often fall for is decorative plates. But they do have to be interesting and pretty, of course.

I felt that this gold leaf Fort Frances plate from Canada was one of those plates. I got it for 72 cents
(Salvation Army).

I thought the detail made it pretty interesting, and the gold leaf added a lovely touch.

After searching this plate, and gold leaf plates in general, I came to the sad conclusion that it's not worth very much. Although I do know it's worth more than the 72 cents I paid for it!

My next find is no surprise if you know me. It's another white ironstone pitcher to add to my growing collection.

It's around 9 inches in height so it's not too big. On the bottom it says "Royal Haeger USA."      .

I think I'll be using it as a vase. I picked it up for $1.52 from Salvation Army. I was drawn to its lovely shape. That's usually what draws me to a piece.

Now I'm going to depart completely from the kitchen/barware/serveware category of finds and switch gears. First off, let me say that our family is a dog family. My husband and I have had a dog for 13 of our 20 married years together. Our kids love dogs as well. So last year when my husband and I were walking around the Kane County Flea Market in Geneva, IL and spied this vintage painting of three terriers, we both fell in love with it.

 Yes, we've had two soft coated wheaten terriers, so we are VERY partial to the terrier breed.

The painting is signed, but we can't really make out the name. All we know is that we love it.
In the same vein, I picked up this black and white drawing of a mom terrier and her pup at a local thrift shop for a song.

This one is much smaller in size, but we love it just the same.

And here's our own precious wheaten terrier, Riley. I created this image by applying PicMonkey's Black and White effect to one of our photos. It's of Riley on her first road trip. I actually took this picture with my iPhone on selfie mode over my shoulder in the car. OK, enough with the terrier obsession.

Are you a dog person or a cat person?

Oh I'm a dog person. The longest I'v been without a dog in my life is when our beloved Buck, a Chocolate Lab died. We moved after he died and didn't have a fenced yard so we waited until our beautiful Lucy, yellow lab came into our life and suddenly there was a reason to fence in that back yard. Right now I don't have a dog of my own but three live with me. They belong to my daughters who are both living in places where they can't have a pet. When the dogs all go home I will probably adopt an adult dog. Don't think I can live through the puppy stage again. Sorry this is so long but I just got on a roll thinking about Buck and Lucy.

Fun finds, Kathleen...I LOVE the dog painting! I am a dog person, too...we have had 6 dogs over our 43 years of marriage...a cocker/retriever mix, three basset hounds, and now 2 pugs. We are blessed they have all lived to old age, so we have hardly been without a dog. And now we have 2, a Boston Terrier is coming to stay later this month (our pugs love him). So I don't pass up many dog collectibles either!

I love all your fabulous finds, but the painting of the sweet terriers is my favorite. So precious!!

Love all your finds. I really like what you did with Riley's photo. It looks like you drew it. I have to admit it, I am a cat person. LOL! Have a great weekend.

I believe the drawing of the mom and pup is by Lucy Dawson, possibly a cut out from one of her books. She is an amazing artist, her books and drawings are very popular and beautiful!
