This week's luck continued today when I found this vintage yellow Dansk Kobenstyle Pitcher to add to my collection! I cannot wait to be able to unpack all of my collection and see it together. I picked this one up at an antique mall so it wasn't very thrifty, but compared to etsy/ebay prices it sure was! :)

  1. are you still doing charm packs?

  2. The died yarn is so PRETTY!!!

  3. I love the pyrex, I love teapots and jugs

  4. What great finds! Love the pitcher especially! And congrats on learning to crochet - it's always good to have another skill! Btw, I really like your 'good things about today!'

  5. I had to chuckle a bit about that one sheet that is the back drop for your yellow pitcher. My grandparents summer cottage had that same print as that sheet but is was the in wallpaper in the kitchen. BTW love Geogrge he is such a cute ND bunny!

  6. do tell how to die yarn with kool aid...and does it last through washings?

  7. oops, never mind, I just saw you had a link for dying the yarn.

  8. I finally blogged about my Pyrex collecting!! And, I also scored the SAME vintage sheet as the top one in your cool!!! I am still washing, drying, pressing, and stashing my vintage sheet finds while I shop for my very first sewing machine...wish we lived closer because I have it on good authority that you're a great sewing teacher! Happy thrifting!!!

  9. How come I never get that lucky?! :) Loving your yarn and granny square, ni job! And George looks fabulous, of course!!

  10. Love your Kool-aid dyed yarns... gorgeous colors! Congrats on learning to crochet... I have such fun with it.

    Like Jennifer O., I recognized the sheet used as the backdrop for the yellow pitcher... I had that set, except in blue/green... took it to college with me in the fall of 1969. Not sure what happened to the sheets but I still have the pillowcases.

  11. My love of Pyrex brought me to your blog, but it's the vintage sheets that keep me coming back. I love spotting patterns from my childhood. My mom and grandmother and mother-in-law have had many of the patterns I've seen here.

  12. So, so, so glad that you learned to crochet!!!

  13. My friend dyes yard in Kool-aid all the time. It is beautiful! That pitcher is super cool. Wonder if I could find one in orange...

  14. Jenni, completely speech-less your sheet haul is A-MA-ZING!!! :D

  15. Your Kool-Aid yarn looks awesome, and look! You're crocheting! I so want to learn, and I'm committed to doing so before the end of July. Yay, Jeni! Okay, now I'm off to see this video of George eating a banana. Also, your interview was cute on the Sewing Summit blog!

  16. Lovely stack of vintage sheets! I love your collection of vintage kitchenware, so pretty and inspiring!

    Oh boy! Crochet! My twin sister does crochet, but I just really lack the patience for it. It's a gift for those who can do it, I didn't understand it when I was being taught, lol. I love hand sewing though!

    George bunny! I laughed when you mentioned in your interview that he nibbles on quilts and their bindings! Bad!

    Lovely blog!

  17. You always have the best thrifting luck! Do you have a recipe or link to a recipe that you could share for the lemon blueberry muffins you mentioned? Thanks!

  18. Wow, amazing thrifting luck! I love how your yarn turned out - definitely need to try that!

  19. Great finds and I especially love the purple yarn that you dyed - so pretty!

  20. I love reading your blog and seeing the vintage sheets you find. I actually had 2 of the ones in your pile growing up! The yellow green stripe, and the 5th design up from the bottom showing the yellow and pink flowers. I loved these sheets. I remember them feeling so soft and cool. Thanks for the memories. I'm a child of the 70's. What can I say?!
