House Beautiful: A Nice Cool Drink

I love going to the Brooklyn Flea to pick up things for the home, like my lovely sugar, flour, coffee, and tea tins. It's a great way to add charm to basic household items. A few weeks ago, in the thick of the summer heat, I was going to just go to Target and get a pitcher to put iced tea in. I lucked out on a beautiful day at the Flea and got lucky with this cute1950s pitcher for $14 (the vendors were really good to me).



I love the sailboats and seagulls; I'm nuts for most things nautical. I put this photo on Instagram where it's much easier for you to see the design.




I'm now on a quest to collect more vintage glassware so I'm Googling vintage glass painting techniques and production frantically so I know what to hunt for in secondhand shops. If anyone has good information, send it my way!

  2. Aren't those kind of finds the best? Hopefully I'll be able to start fleamarketing again once it cools down a bit. Meanwhile keep sharing; I'll live vicariously through you. ; )
