Random favorites


This pink polkadot cup of hot coffee that I use every morning.


This wonderful brand of preserves I found recently, that turns into drinkware.


This vintage juicer.


This book.


This painting by my friend Catherine Holman.


And this little loveliness that I found on Etsy the other day.








Just thought I'd share ;)

  1. The steam swirling off your coffee, marvelous! Best looking jelly jar I've ever seen, old juicers--an essential.

    I love your kitchen!

  2. Do you remember Bama Jelly? I haven't seen it since I moved North (what a mistake that was), but it was always on the table in my grandparents house. Anyway, the jelly came in glassware and then, of course, you had a new glass when you finished the jelly! I have one glass left from my grandparents that went to my dad, then to me. I was so excited to see that jelly that I looked it up on line! There is more than jelly in their online store, so I will be placing an order soon! Then I'll have those cute glasses! It doesn't take much to make me happy! I have my grandparents juicer and I love it!
    Have a wonderful week!
    Hugs,

  5. Oooh, at Christmas we had a preserve with peppers in it and it came in one of those jars. We poured it over cream cheese. :)

  7. Oh, Rue, my heart skipped a beat when I saw that you have my artwork hanging in your charming home. I drink from a red and white polka dot mug every day. Thanks for the link dear friend!

  9. Sweet treasures one and all.
    I have a juicer exactly like that only in Jadeite, and it still works perfectly!
    Thanks for the fun post. Have a wonderful day! :)

  10. Pink polka dots are smile makers (and pretty, too). Love your scales.I have a green Depression glass juicer that I treasure--I've never seen a measuring cup. What a find. I haven't seen that brand of jelly, but I'll look. The jars are wonderfully thick-bottomed and attractive.

  11. What a wonderful vintage scale! I am tempted by so many vintage things on ETSY, especially teacups :)

  12. Oh the scale is wonderful
    I hardly ever look on ebay

  13. I can see why these things are some of your favorites! I'm especially drawn to the coffee mug and the preserves (not only the preserves themselves, but love the glass jar).
