I admit it!
I have a collection of drinking glasses.
They made them so pretty long ago! The ones on the left - the yellow/white stiped ones with what looks like a carnation in the middle - I got these at a yard sale. She said they were in flour bags a long time ago. I bought four of them (I think I paid $1 each for them) and she kept the other four.
These were my moms. I think the boxer one was a peanut butter jar.
I used to refund a lot. These Keebler glasses I obtained free by sending in Keebler cookie upcs.
These are on top of our small freezer. My grandma used to keep her glasses on top of her refrigerator. Did your mom or Grandma do that, too?
Here are a few more. As you can tell, I like yellow! But I must confess the one with the torquoise flower on it is one of my favorites.
This is my latest addition. I saw this at the thrift store Tuesday, and I couldn't resist giving her a quarter for this one. It is very heavy and the cherries and white sections stick out, kind of like they are embossed. I've never seen any like it before. I wish there had been more of them!
I've had these Anchor Hocking tulip glasses for a long time. They are a favorite of mine. The container in the middle doesn't match, (I believe it must have been put out to match Corelle dishes, because the pattern matches one of their designs).
I love these wheat glasses and pitcher. I have five of the glasses. I don't know who made them.
And, last but not least, are my juice glasses! They are so cute.
I have had more, but gotten rid of them at yard sales. A girl can only have so many glasses, you know, before they start to take over.
But, I must confess, I do have more. Maybe I'll post them on another day.
Which one is your favorite?
Do you collect drinking glasses or maybe some other item that catches your eye when you see them at yard sales or thrift stores.
I'd love to hear about what you collect.
