Vintage Goodies

On my way to Texas last month, I stopped by my blogging friend Sherry's and shopped at her booth 
Back 2 Vintage in Laurel, MS
I also was able to shop her inventory at home!
Here are some of the awesome items I purchased!
I was really excited when I saw these in Sherry's stash.  I have several plates and bowls in this patter and to add the S&P and the cream and sugar bowl was a big score for me!  This is Poppy Metlox and the pattern is Woodland Gold...go here to see it used in a tablescape for Thanksgiving 2010!
This little piggy creamer came home with me
Yes I have a thing for creamers!
These tiny saucers (no cups) were just too cute to pass up and I think they will make perfect butter pats!
I really liked this bowl and drinking glass!
The orange edge caught my eye and the neat design...Sherry said it is called Wagon Wheel.  It will be used in a trayscape for sure!
This sugar and creamer are the most lovely shade of blue!  I could not resist.  Neither Sherry or I can find any information about them but hopefully one of you knows the maker and pattern?? 

Least you think that I only took from Sherry, I brought her a car load of Pyrex and other assorted dishes from my stash.  She was excited to get items she has trouble finding in her area and are popular in her booth!   
It was a win~win for both of us!  

I'm joining Suzanne for Vintage Thingy Thurs
and

I hope you will drop by both of these blogs and visit these sweet ladies!

Hugs,
Linda

That must have been SO MUCH FUN!!! I love the goodies you got from her. The blue sugar and creamer have a 40s look. My Mom has a chrome on brass that have the EXACT SAME SHAPE and HANDLE SHAPE(If that helps, MAYBE A Clue)...
So Happy you got to meet, it is SO SWEET to know we have such wonderful ladies ALL OVER that share the same loves we do...
Have a fun weekend,
Hugs,
Donna

So happy you got to see Sherry. I just love her blog. The blue sugar and creamer look familiar, so I'm anxious to see if anyone else knows who made it.

It's great that you have treasures with a history - I like knowing someone I loved used an item I now use. Enjoy.

What great finds and what fun the two of you must have had spending time together! Let me know where you live in Texas. My hubby and I have to drive down there with a trailer to pick up some furniture he inherited. If it's not out of the way, maybe I can stop by and take you out for coffee. Have a great weekend!

Hugs,
Susan and Bentley
