It seems this summer I accumulated a bit of retro pieces. They all seem to fit together so nicely. But as you know, I'm more of a black and white kind of gal. So with summer vacation coming to an end, I decided to do up our family Labor Day picnic in a retro theme and change things up a bit. I think it adds a bit of "punch" to my table setting, dontcha think?
I think this carrier was actually used for vintage glass oil cans with the metal spouts. But I like using and repurposing it as a glass carrier. Don't ya love the red!
This vintage cooler was a little worse for the wear on the outside, but I loved the cute saying on it. And even though the outside was a bit banged up, the inside was still able to hold ice cubes. How perfect is it was for our retro table setting? It certainly was a "pleasure" to use!
Isn't she a cutie pie! Somebody, probably in the '50s, was very creative with a vegetable can now weren't they. It works perfect as a silverware server!
How fun is this piece??? It's a vintage ice cream maker. And what great graphics it has! I love using it to hold flowers!
This Pyrex bowl is perfect to hold the strawberries. Don't they look nummy! Get 'em while they're still in season!
I think this is a pharmaceutical beaker. I purchased it at Sue's garage sale. Love it for my ice tea. Sue has one, a smaller version, that was for urine specimens. She likes to use it for apple juice. Eeeuuww!
This table cloth was a perfect backdrop to my table setting! And even though it had a little hole, no mind. I love it's imperfections!
I love using restaurant platters as our every day dishes. They can hold a lot more food. And if you know my hubby, he eat's a lot!
Last by absolutely not least, is this cute little black and white kettle given to me by Kathy on her recent visit to Minnesota. It works perfect for the brown beans! Thanks, Kathy!
