"G" is for....

Grateful!.....  I’m so grateful to all of you for “following” my blog! Thank you!!! Your comments are fun and uplifting and I read every one! “G” is also for Giveaway….I am planning a special giveaway to commemorate my “100 Followers” milestone, so be sure to stay in touch!

To those of you that have been following for a while, you know that from time to time I take you on an ABC-style tour of the items in my booths at Southern Antique Mall and today is the next installment. I started this tour back in November 2010, so if you just became a follower in the last few days, you can check the blog archive in the right sidebar and “catch up” on the other “ABC” posts if you wish.

“G” is for….

Various patterns as I find them

Granger tobacco tin

Grapico soda bottle

Gravy Boats

Glasbake - by McKee Glass
McKee Glass made numerous bakeware items like pie plates, casseroles and custards.

Here are two Little Princess apple bakers carrying the Glasbake mark.


Grill Plates
Various manufacturers like Homer Laughlin, Buffalo, Syracuse and Caribe

Golden Acorn
Pyrex Space Saver Casserole

Goose and the Golden Egg
Salt/Pepper Shakers

Since I am not totally sure about this one, I put it last.
Gaudy Nippon
Salt/Pepper Shakers
Please let me know if I am right or wrong. There are no marks...roses appear to be handpainted and the blue is a very rich cobalt...several gold touches on sides and tops.
They are beautiful!

Gee, that was fun!!!  "H" will be next.............Hmmm!

I'll be joining the Nifty Thrifty Tuesday party at Coastal Charm!

The new Wow Us Wednesdays party at Savvy Southern Style!
