VTT

Vintage. I love to dig around in Antique shops looking at all of the Vintage things from yesteryear. Do you ever wonder where things came from. Who used them? What was the occasion??

From the time I was a little girl, I remember this item being in our home.

I don't know how long my mother had it, or where she got it, but for 50+ years, it's been a staple either in my Mom's home or mine.

One day, my Aunt's gave me this.......

It has a couple of nicks on it, but the color is just the same as the bowl.

I think they make a nice pair, don't you??

Please join ColoradoLady at Vintage Thingie Thursday.

Oh my... you have some wonderful pieces!! I think of all the Roseville you might have some of the finest pieces that were made. I am no expert but I do remember seeing some of this pattern in an antique store that is no longer in business here and it was priced much higher than the other pieces. You truly have something to cherish... and I'm not just speaking of monetary value, but the memories!

Roseville!!! I'm so excited. Is the second one a cookie jar maybe? Both pieces are gorgeous. I'm drooling right now.

What great Roseville pieces. The most special part is they belonged to your mom and your aunt.
Lucky you.
Hugs, Jeanne

I LOVE and collect Roseville too. In fact, I grew up not too far from where it was manufactured. I have the same pattern but in Mauves, pinks and greens. TFS

I think your Roseville pieces are fabulous! Love that they family history. I do often wonder about the vintage items I purchase or see and think "if only this could talk."

I love the tablescape below. What pretty dishes! I love the colors.
