MISS JENNY'S RAINBOW - ORANGE

I must say that Orange is not my favorite color!  I don't use a lot of it except during Halloween and in Fall decorations but decided not to dig out that box from the basement
This week on our Rainbow Summer School Session our color is Orange and I'm showing you some items I have around the house
I found this cute OJ pitcher in the thrift 
This orange and green piggy bank was from a yard sale
This orange planter was also a thrift shop find
A really cute OJ mug
From Florida
Orange Tupperware glasses
Orange Raffia Ware Bowls
(they look yellow here but they are a pale orange)
These great Orange & Green Retro Mugs

That's my entry for the color Orange!
Some of these items are listed in my Etsy store!

Always,
Linda

It's amazing what can be found within the house to fit with Ms. Jenny's themes. I enjoyed seeing your finds!

My mother in law has that same OJ pitcher! She got one like that with a set of glasses when her and my father in law met when they were teens, and a few years ago it started leaking in the fridge, since she uses it everyday! She was so upset when it broke, and it took my hubby and I forever to find one like that for her on ebay! I think they are so cute!

Susan said...

I'm not a big orange fan, either, but I have to admit that some of the things you have pictured here are so cute. Like the bowls, and the pig, and the mugs are sweet too.

Have a great weekend shopping and I hope you find lots of wonderful treasures to bring home!

Did it surprise you to find so much orange around when it's not one of your favorite colors? It surprised me! I do love the bank.

Boy, I would be hard pressed to find some orange in my shabby house. I do have a 1974 orange fondue pot! I hear fonduing is all the rage again!

Nice oranges. I don't have any in my house that I know of. Well, except my outdoor striped cushions that I am sitting here looking at stacked on the floor.

Debbie said...

Lovely oranges abound Linda:) I bet you could find every color, shape and size at this point..just go in the basement. I have a giveaway..go enter:)

Kat said...

I love that planter, and those mugs are great! You found lots of great orange to share with us this week.

A Hopeful Heart said...

Orange isn't a color I would have alot of either. In fact, I can't think of ANY orange in my house right at the moment.

I LOVE the piggy bank. Of course, since there is alot of green on him, that might be the reason why I like him.

My grandmother had drinking glasses in that rafia ware pattern. Plus, she used that orange juice caraffe, so this post reminded me of her.

Blessings and hugs,
Patti

You have some great orange pieces - the pig is my favorite!

Vintage Sassy said...

There is a lot of orange over here at my house because it is one of my favorite colors! It all started when I sold my pink Kitchenaid and bought a tangerine colored one and now I even have an orange chippendale sofa. It's not for everybody but then I don't really like red and a lot of people like red.

Thank goodness we are all different!

I think it's interesting except for fall decorations most people don't have a lot of orange happening in their homes. I thought you came up with some really neat things. In fact, I have a 1 orange tupperware glass I forgot about until I saw yours lol.
