VTT Valentines!

Welcome to another beautiful Vintage Thingies Thursday! It's warm (50's!) and sunny here in Massachusetts - happy soul weather! Click on the above photo to view more VTT finds!

Here are my two VTT Valentine contributions. The first one is a creamer/sugar set that has gorgeous raspberry hearts, a mother-of-pearl finish, and "drippings" of gold. No maker's mark, but remnants of a tag on the bottom - probably made in Japan.
This is a funky, retro, 70's (?) candle holder. It looks like it should have a centerpiece. I rummaged around and found this Teleflora white planter to fill with candy and voila!

I really like the sugar and creamer, but the center piece is so neat. I'm sure I remember seeing one like it back in the 70's. Isn't it funny how everything old is new again. Stuff that I threw away and called junk is now very popular and I am kicking myself for not saving it....lol..thanks for sharing and bring back sweet memories.

Love the sugar/creamer set but that centerpiece item really jogged a memory. My mom had one, and in the middle was an arrangement of flowers in a pot.

I like your cut creamer and sugar set.

I did NOT post on VTT. Suzanne somehow mixed up today's Mr. Linky with yesterday's, and all of the sign-ups are now forever mixed.

Thanks for coming by and leaving a comment.

Lovely red Valentine things.
I have a cousin named Cherrie. I remember when she was born. I was just a little kid but I told everybody when I had a baby I was going to name her Peachy because I liked peaches. I didn't, of course. I named her Carol.
Have a happy VTT.
