Vintage strawberries


It's been awhile since I shared any photos of my strawberry collection, which seems to just grow and grow.  People very frequently give me strawberry items as gifts.  A few things in my collection could be classified as vintage (and one or two are antiques) so I thought I would share some of those today.  (I'm realizing there are yet more I haven't taken pictures of yet!)  To simplify my post and save time, I will just post pictures and captions.  These are all older photos.
Little vintage dish given me by a friend; vintage doily.
I use this mug, probably from the 1970s or early 1980s, to hold pens and pencils.
There are a few items in this photo, but the antique bowl is what I wish to show you.
Years ago a friend gave me this antique cookie plate that belonged to her mother.
This pretty strawberry crock holds utensils.
This tray is from the 1960s or 1970s
Little vintage sugar bowl with the same red doily
I think this ceramic cookie jar is vintage too.
My sister-in-law found these McCoy items in cleaning out a house.  They match a crock that I already owned!
The back of a hot pad made by my friend J. using a vintage pattern and vintage feedsack fabric.
Front of the same hotpad
This hot pad is not vintage, but the embroidered design may be.  My friend Ruth found the partially stitched design and used it to create a gift for me!
I have several of these linen towels from the 1950s
Hope you've enjoyed these vintage strawberry things as much as I do.  Linking up today with Share Your Cup Thursday andVintage Charm.

    1. Isn't that fun about your friends having the same cookie jar, Shelia!

      I've been so enjoying your posts about the miniatures and am pinning some of your ideas. My hubby actually started building me a doll house before we were married (over 40 years ago) but it remains unfinished. Some day I would love to complete the furnishings and get him to finish it. Your ideas will be very useful! Thanks for sharing them.

    1. Wow, your aunt's kitchen must have been so nice, Arlene! I have never been sorry that I chose the strawberry theme, and the colors look nice at Christmas too.
