A change

I took a day off today to take care of some business.

And while waiting for the tech to show up....I was able to clean the pantry, the liquid shelf (were the oils,vinegar, soya sauce and assorted liquid condiments live including Tabascos, nuoc mam-fish sauce, Chinese cooking wine)

I also went through the spice shelf. I am very proud of what I did. There never seems to be any time on the weekends....sigh

I also did a bit of decorating

                                             The lighting is always really bad in this corner.
 Sorry . After the Xmas stuff was packed up, I was looking for some decorating
ideas. And then came the 0.75 cents pitcher.....
                                              It is a soft turquoise, not robin egg...a bit darker
                                                 I will take sharper pics and maybe someone can help me identify it.

                                            This is my last thrifty find from last weekend.
                                                    I saw it and had to have it...A North Pole     
                                                    NY glass. It was so dirty I could not pose it before.

                                             I figured it was about time I got a Xmas vintage glass!

                                            This is it for tonight. We ae being whipped left and right by
                                             a late winter snow storm...We are expecting about a foot of snow;
                                            oh well, we do live in Quebec!

                                            Sleep tight!

Love the pitcher, it does look old. The Christmas glass is so much fun! I am glad you got it! Hope this storm passes soon and Spring can come on in!!

Great glass! I have a vintage North Pole, NY pennant I bought a couple months ago from an antique market. I love it.
