Three Vintage Bitters Decanters with Metal Label Tags

https://www.etsy.com/listing/185828426/three-vintage-bitters-decanters-with

The first time I saw metal liquor tags was at the Victorian mansion / bed and breakfast where one of my high school BFs was pre-partying/getting ready for her wedding. They had a little liquor bar in the corner of the room with dusty decanters, and I was just so charmed by the whole setup. 

So I was pretty thrilled when I found these at these at the St. Vinny’s Vintage Kitchen Sale. I’ve never had bitters (are they bitter?), but now I feel the need to try some.

This would be such a lovely addition to a girly bar setup. Or as a flower vase on a nightstand. Just some suggestions.

The Vintage Kitchen Sale at St. Vinny’s was the event that just kept on giving. This love was hiding on a top shelf. I may be rather on the petite side, ok very petite side, but I can grapple my way up a shelving unit when duty calls.

We had a drying rack during grad school (aka Dark Days of No Dishwasher) but it was NOWHERE as cool as this one. Even if one is lucky enough to have a dishwasher, this would be a fun way to display dishes.  Vintage Red Metal Kitchen Drying Rack

Mid Century Blue Glass Pitcher with White Diamond Pattern 

https://www.etsy.com/listing/185594332/mid-century-blue-clear-glass-pitcher

This was a post-Vintage Kitchen Sale find at St. Vinny’s. I don’t know where it was hiding during my main perusal of the VKS; having cocktails with the overpriced drinking glasses, I presume. This too was priced a bit on the high-end, but oh, I love me some colored glass. It sings of summer, lemonade on a hot porch, al fresco dining …  

And I’m back. It’s rainy and cold here in the midwest, so I will just have to live vicariously through this pitcher for a little while longer. 

Vintage 1956 Poland Magazine with Winter Cover

What a charming lad with a charming hat. This image would significantly brighten up my winter doldrums (which, in WI, tend to last from November to May). 

Vintage 1958 Poland Literary Magazine with Abstract Art Cover

This is only the third of seven of these mags in my possession so I hope you don’t mind the steady stream of their gorgeousness. 

Vintage 1957 Poland Magazine with “Boats” Cover

Ohhh, I never met a sailboat I didn’t immediately adore. This is no exception. 

Vintage 1957 Poland Magazine with Floral “Summer” Cover

https://www.etsy.com/listing/183303371/vintage-1957-poland-magazine-with-flora

I adore this. The cover reminds me of this charming park near my college in Atlanta, GA. Not sure why, as it resembles the park in no way; I think it must just be the feeling it invokes. 

Anywaaaay, so this is one of seven Poland illustrated magazines I picked up while in Springfield, IL last month. Each one has a stunning cover as well as several equally frame-able illustrations inside. Nothing says “fun” like communist-era propaganda-y artwork.
