Last Friday, I received this vintage blue vase from my mother. It is one family heirloom that I have always loved! The color and the shape are just so beautiful!!
It was my great grandparent's vase that was dearly loved by them. I am not sure the year of it, maybe 50's or 60's, and I am not even sure where they bought it from. I just love it!!
There are vintage matchbooks inside from all the restaurants, and places they visited. Whenever they traveled or just went to dinner, they would add the matches to the vase!! The vase was pretty full, but half of the matches went to my sister. But, at least I got the pretty vase!! ;)
There are some pretty cool matchbooks in the vase!! Many are from California, Nevada, Utah, and even one from Alaska.
These are some of my favorites! Some of the buildings, such as Sheri's Restaurant and Coffee Shop, and Little Joe's Restaurant and Groceries are still there, but no longer in business. So fun!!
This is a very special one! Leona and Stewart were my great grandparents, and this matchbook was from their 50th Anniversary!! So sweet! I was only a year old when they celebrated 50 years!! I can't wait to reach such a wonderful milestone with my husband!! And, yes, now you know how old I am! I will be the big '30' in September!! Yay!! ;)
So, now this beautiful vintage blue vase, is being cherished and loved in my home!! And waiting to be filled with more matchbooks!!
Two more grannie blocks done!! I didn't get time to crochet the other grannies, so hopefully this week I can catch up!!
All my grannie blocks laid out!! I am getting close, only 11 more to go! I am also almost done hand quilting the baby quilt!! I will be posting the finished quilt soon!
Happy Monday, and wishing you a lovely week!!
