Vintage Thingie Thursday - Moon and Star Pitcher

Moon and Star Creamer

I would almost think that this is the real deal, however, the handle leaves me wondering.
I found this pitcher in an antique store in
Port Lavaca, Texas...
where strangely enough I ran into a friend I had not seen in years.

If you have an opinion on this creamer,
I would like to hear it.

In the meantime... visit

Thank you, Mary Elizabeth at

You are my
It's taken me a while to get the hang of this
blog-thing, but
now it's like I think I have to do it daily.
Maybe now I should relax a bit.
Is there such a thing as over-exposure???

It's REDnesday, so wear your red bandana and be a pirate!

My brother's pirate party ca. 1960

My mother always came up with great ideas for our birthdays or Halloween when we were little. We were known for our pirate or hobo parties.
Here I think my brother was probably six. He's the little boy to the left of the boy with black eye patch. I wonder where my mother got that ship that was the centerpiece. Cute idea.
Wonder if children have pirate-theme parties anymore?

I love to look at my parents' old slides. I have them in my computer
and enjoy looking at the many ways my mother
used items she had in her home. We moved fairly often
so with these slides I am reminded how creative she was
using her milk glass for holiday dinners and special occasions.
The table in this picture is covered by a tablecloth but I am sitting
at that table now as I create this posting.
The stories this table could tell!

Have a very RED day
