Vintage Thingies Thursday 10

This is how dark our mornings are at the time ordinary people go to work. The days will still get shorter for two more weeks. Click the picture and you may see the shape of our house. The candle heart is in our living room window.



It is time to participate in VTT again, hosted by Coloradolady here . There are links to other blogs participating in this, showing lovely vintage Christmas items.


I have not yet taken out my real Christmas decoration - we decorate for Christmas Eve - but here are some things I always use at Christmas.

The candleholder is made of pewter and I have had it for ages, from my mother or my grandmother.



In this lovely jar I serve chocolates or other candy wrapped in paper. When you turn the handle down, the lid opens. This is also from my parents, made in the early years of last century.

This is all for this week. Go and see what the other blogs are showing!

  3. The pewter candlestick is so beautiful! Here's a bit of gos you probably know: tomatoes were thought poisonous in the Medieval period because the acid in them made the lead in pewter leach into the food causing death. Pewter is beautiful though.

    Beautiful shade of green on your jar. I love how you have managed to keep so many family things.

    I would be so longing for the mornings of light- we have darker mornings where you have to use light bulbs, but even so it isn't as dark as your mornings. I love your heart light.

    when I clicked on the detail my monitor screen went dark and I could see how desperately it needed dusting . LOL

  6. Both of your items are wonderful, I've never seen things like them before. My mom collects pewter, but she doesn't have anything as fancy as yours.
