Ruby Sherbet Glasses

I love these little sherbet glasses. They are 70's Luminarc and the pattern is Cavalier. I have noticed from my research that some have 'straight' stems while these have a more decorative stem. Bottom line is they're made in France (oh la la), as indicated on the bottoms and are in lovely condition. I would say the colour is more like garnet but, really, are we splitting hairs here? Me thinks perhaps.

Vintage Libbey Condiment Set

A sweet find! No matching spoons but that's nothing as spoons for this set would be easy enough to replace (little glass ones would be perfect). On really hot summer days when it's just easier to fire up the bbq and have a hot dog or hamburger (totally gourmet, of course) this cutie patootie condiment set would come in rather handy, don't you think?

Vallila Finland 1978 Fabric.... Oh, joy!

While browsing through one of my favorite spots, I thought I'd rummage through the fabric bins in hopes of finding something to cover a lamp shade. I'll have to keep looking but I did happen across this lovely vintage piece. It's marked Vallila Finland 1978. The signature on the fabric is lost on me, though.  

I don't think it was ever washed (yuk!) so I gave it a cold water wash as it's not colorfast, and hung to dry. Sad to say, there are a few minor stains on the bottom but, overall, it's a great find and the colors are incredibly vibrant. 

Is this not a beautiful thing?
