As seen on Etsy…

Vintage Blue Glassware

Set of 4 Vintage Blue Wine Glasses
How cool is this?! I glimpsed these on Etsy this week and was mesmerized. I have never really been a fan of coloured glassware, believing they quickly look dated and tacky or just plain Liberace-esque, but there is something about these glasses that are slightly medieval – with their deep set jewel shaped cuts and always in style watery shade of deep blue, that makes these a fab choice for any and every dinner party. N’est ce pas?

At only $20 they can be found in Karli Hearrons etsy store.

Vintage Salt and Pepper shakersVintage Salt and Pepper Shakers

Rainbow Birds Salt and Pepper Shakers
Vintage? Check, Swallow type birds in the design? Check, Colour colour colour? Check! These vintage salt and pepper shakers are so fun I just had to share. Currently on sale for a mere $22 in the etsy store of JessJameJake, these salt and pepper shakers are not for the light at heart. They will make a strong contribution to your kitchen/dining space decor for sure!

Salvaged Wood Chalk Board

Chalkboard made from Vintage / Salvaged Window 26 x 18
I love how many kitchens have been using chalkboard paint as both a design and practical element. But for those of us a little less bold, this salvaged window turned chalk board by Half Pint Salvage, really hits the nail on the head.
For sale at a mere $67 it even rather smartly uses the window pull as a cubby for holding the chalk you will use to pen your kitchen haiku’s. (Or shopping list!).

Teak serving tray

Teak Serving Tray
A lovely Danish looking serving tray with a crosshatched teak wood pattern with matching wood handles. This is a nice way to introduce some Mid-Century Modernism into your home without it looking like a set from Austin Powers or some such. The price is $49 and for a one off piece that is large, (20 inches wide), it is both a practical and stylish element to own.
Check it out in Hindsvik’s store.
