Drinking buddies


I had no time to search for treasures at the thrift store this weekend. We had a full schedule of events. More about that on Friday.

In the meantime, I am preparing for a family gathering we are going to host next weekend. I am making an effort to use some of the vintage serving dishes I have acquired from my parents over the years.

They have lots of drinkware from the seventies. Good times, I guess.

I do recall crashing on a couch or spare bed next to my sister quite a few times while they partied, and I say good for them!

Here are some of the drinking aids they have given to me, including my favourite set, above.




That last one hangs around your neck so you never misplace your drink. I have four of those. Classy, huh?
Which set do you think I should break out this weekend?
What good-time tunes should we add to our party playlist?
If you get a moment, take a look at my new page about me ("The Woman," above). I finally put something together, painful as it is to do. Oh, and consider following me on Google Friend Connect or Bloglovin' if you like what you see here.

  5. Ugh, About pages. I hate them so. It took me forever to get mine up.

    Okay, so I'd go with the first set. I *gasped* as soon as I saw it load on the page. Awesome, awesome, awesome!

  9. Love, love these glasses! It can be so hard to find interesting pieces that are anything but clear, and I do love a good pattern. The third set with the leaves is particularly pretty... I can see them fitting right into a number of gatherings and special occasions.

    1. Thanks Hannah. I am really trying to see how I can use these things instead of just storing them.

  11. That first set really pops out! They're all lovely. I like to play music from the 70's when I entertain. The faces first album, Early Van Morrison, Rory Gallager and anything with a retro funk or latin feel to it. Off to check out your pages. :)

    1. It's okay. I won't compete. I was more of a Kurt fan anyway, with his downcast look and his little wooly cardigans. ;)
