In Bloom

Vintage Chip and Dip Bowl

Just found this at an estate sale in Chi-town. Looks even better in person. Viewed from the top it looks like a flower with the scalloped edges and middle bowl which is also scalloped. Really pretty rosa rugosa pattern in gold on the top. Perfect condition. Check it out at http://www.prairieflowervintage.etsy.com

Who Needs Calgon When You’ve Got Don?

Who Needs Calgon When You've Got Don?

We just got back from a great estate sale. An elderly couple (one had been a concert pianist, the other an opera singer) lived in a mid century home with vintage galore. I was in ecstasy. This is just one of the items we picked up. A tray perfect for serving your Mad Men martinis. (I for one am counting the days. Who needs Calgon when you’ve got Don?)

Mad Men

  It’s been too long. I need my “Mad Men” fix. And for my viewing party?  Fondue, of course.

I love this one that I just picked up at an estate sale.  It makes me think of flower power every time I look at it.

Now comes the hard part.  Cheese or chocolate? WWDD? Is there an alcohol fondue?
