Retro Saturday

On our vacation to Cape Cod last month, I visited a few antique/collectible shops. One of those was in Provincetown.

It had so many items that I would have LOVED to have purchased! But I controlled myself and ended up buying this little glass tumbler.

It is a 1974 Warner Brothers advertising  product that would 'fit in' well with what I already have.

And who doesn't like Tweetie and Sylvester !


  1. Love that tumbler Jim! It seems you like the vintage tumblers as much as I like knifes and forks!

  2. we had that one...wish we had it today...I'm sure it was broken or lost in a move...

  3. I know Jim.. I have to control myself when I get into these antique stores. I want it all, and have to talk myself out of a lot.. I love the tumbler, and your right.. who doesn't like Sylvester and Tweety! Have a wonderful and safe holiday weekend.

  4. Hubby drives me nuts -he does a great impersonation of Sylvester-once he starts there`s no shutting him up !! love the tumblers x

  5. Interesting glasses. Your photos are beautiful as is Sophie.
    Thank you for stopping by Fabric,Food and Fido with well wishes for Lily. It is truly appreciated.

  6. That's really cute. I can see why you had to have it!

  7. Oh...Jim you were lucky that I WASN'T with YOU in these shops....: I would have helped YOU to BY YOUR LOVED things....!!
    ( I have got this terrible talent to convince to by.....!!
    ...But I have got another "talent" : I love to DEAL down the PRICES....!!!!)

    I do love indeed your choices of fun and original tumblers.....!!!!!
    FUN the pics....GORGEOUS!!

    Have a wonderful sunday, Jim!!!
    ciao ciao elvira

  8. OMG! My mother had Sylvester glasses from a gas station in the '60s. Wait! My mother STILL has Sylvester glass from a gas station in the '60s. (They're in the cabinet sitting next to the Tupperware from the '50s). I love this!

  9. I think I have a Tom and Jerry glass in the downstairs cupboard, still full of grape jelly. You want it? Minus the jelly, of course. If you do, I'll check and make sure I'm remembering correctly.

  10. I knew you wouldn't be able to resist. I wonder what else you bought that you're hiding?


  11. I bet you set a fun table! Eating at your house would be a walk back through time! And probably a good eat, too. :)

  12. Jim, I had these glasses growing up. You're making me sad. Now maybe I should go buy some.


Hey, I really like your comments and appreciate the time you took to do so.
