Vintage Thingies 25 - Glass

This week we go a little deeper in my newly cleaned kitchen cupboard. (I wonder how long it will be decent to call it newly cleaned?) This is Vintage Thingies Thursday hosted by Suzanne. I have added the link button to her blog in my right sidebar.

My blue glass bowl is from a small Finnish factory, but I have not looked for further details yet. I love the cut decoration on it. I think I could serve ice cream from this bowl, or use it as a vase. I have the bowl from my mother and can't remember it ever being used at home.

The next two items I have used a lot, because when I started my own household I didn't have anything else for my sugar.

This I used to sprinkle sugar on my porridge in the morning:

And this other one was when I wanted to take spoonfuls of sugar.

Now I have found better use for it and keep Karen's silk beads in it on display. Sugar is more convenient in a plastic container, when you have a family!

Have you seen all the other Vintage Thingies of this Thursday? The link list is on Coloradolady's blog.


  1. I can very clearly imagine a huge ice cream sundae dripping with chocolate sauce and whipped cream sitting in that lovely blue glass bowl!

  2. happy VTT.. love the bowl.. and few shakes of sugar on my french toast would be yumm!!!

  3. That bowl is a beauty and I love the little snowflake pattern in the top of the sugar shaker.

  4. I love all the pieces! The holes in the sugar shaker are very pretty!

  5. Such a lovely blue! Isn't sad that our mother's wouldn't use these lovely pieces? I love to serve my guests with them. Thanks for sharing.

  6. Your blue glass bowl is lovely but my heart is taken with your sugar shaker...even the holes are beautiful little flowers!

  7. I love the periwinkle (vinca) pattern on the top of your sugar shaker.

    I can see why the blue vase migh've been kept for best- it is very beautiful.

  8. Such pretty glassware - I love the top of the sugar container!

  9. Beautiful glassware, I love that bowl, what a great display piece. Have a great weekend.

  10. oooo.. that blue crystal ice cream dish is gorgeous. So delicate. And I love the little flowers cut in the top of the sugar shaker. NICE way to display Karen's lovely silk buttons.
    I totally missed VTT this week.
