Vintage Thingie Thursday

Vintage Thingie Thursday

This is a vintage blue speckled camping coffee pot I  had for many years. 
I had bought it to make a water feature for my container garden on my deck.

 There was a pump in the water bucket running around the fence surrounding the gas tank for our fireplace and feed into the bottom of the coffee pot and tilted just enough to allow the water to continuously flow back into the bucket.

I loved this little feature.

Well one winter the coffee pot disappeared and I had to dismantle the feature.

Well last week when we were cleaning up the yard our son found it had rolled under the deck and it was there probably about 3 years.

Wa la

 I was tickled to find it.
After a little bath it is now displayed on the deck table on a little display hanger.

The dried leaves I found in town this morning from a Magnolia tree about thee 3 streets away.
They had been blown all over town during the storm last night. I gathered up some for a bouquet arrangement of some kind.

Welcome back little blue coffee pot. :) I like the clutch purses you are making out of plastic bags. I started cutting some last year so I could make something but the ball I wound of plastic still sits. There are a couple of organizations here that teach ladies waiting to be repatriated to their own countries how to crochet rugs and bags from plastic bags so I donate plastics to them for that purpose. Hope you have a terrific Thursday. Tammy

Enjoyed your blog and seeing the way you are using your vintage things. That is a great idea for your little coffee pot. You are saving those big old leaves, I am throwing them away by the tubs full. I do not have a tree, but one of the neighbors do, and the wind blows them everywhere.

You have a lovely, lovely garden! And that coffee pot is gorgeous. Loved the color!
I also enjoyed reading your nostalgic post on pea coat. I'm impressed how you keep that precious photo from 1952.

I'm sorry, I haven't been much around lately. My MA class is killing almost all of my hobbies including blogging :( but I'm hopeful to be back soon. Thanks for joining Tea Talk.
