We are furnishing our new Cabin in the mountains with used furniture for the most part, things my brother has in storage. I am adding bits and pieces with a pine cone theme. My husband rolls his eyes at this and my brother shrugs, he doesn’t care. I am going to be spending quality time up there so I am looking for fun things to live with the next many years.
I have learned my lesson buying inexpensive dishes over the years, they chip and break easily. I spent many hours searching for dishes with a pine cone theme and finally found these. They aren't cheap but they are heavy and microwave and dishwasher safe. They are made by Emerson Potteries in Virginia and they will last for a long long time. I believe in buying quality, something that will last and not have to be replaced in a few years. They feel really sturdy and I am really excited about using them!
I tried to economize on glasses and bought some cheap ones at a discount place and when they came out of the dishwasher, the pine cone design was half off. So I went online and bought these that are dishwasher safe. Again, not cheap, but I think they will last.
We will be sharing the cabin with small four legged creatures probably. I wanted something to protect food. I found these Ransburg vintage canisters on Etsy and they are old and funky. A few scratches and dings already but who cares. I love their look!
I wanted a few small glasses so I found these on Ebay. They are called Tiara Ponderosa Pine and they are juice glasses, about 4 1/2" tall. They were made by Indiana Glass from 1980 to 1998.
This was a just because purchase. There really isn't any room for what I call jinkies at the Cabin but I couldn't resist this tiny pitcher. I have a weakness for pitchers and it just spoke to me.
Well you need at least one snuggling pillow on the sofa! Got the brown one, definitely not needed but what can I say! I bought a few other things but will save them for the reveal when the Cabin is furnished. It is coming along!
