Vintage Thingies Thursday – Cornucopia Vase


This post is a part of Vintage Thingies Thursday. On her blog Lisa the Apron Queen gives a comprehensive list of the sorts of vintage items which qualify: Briefly, they include vintage linens and textiles, vintage kitchen items, and vintage sewing items.

Last Thursday my VTT post featured a vintage planter. This week I want to share a vintage vase which I got at the thrift store for 50 cents.

The vase is a small cornucopia design in a cream ceramic with pink flowers.




My mother has enjoyed seeing it on the table, with flowers or empty.

Another cornucopia vase that my mother likes to see is this one which has a golden base.

I got this on eBay, and since she liked it so much, I put it with her greeting cards in the dining for our Mother’s Day dinner. I placed the vase before I had fresh flowers to put in it; so it has sprays of silk flowers instead.



I look forward to seeing the vintage things other bloggers will be posting. Do visit Confessions of an Apron Queen to see more Vintage Thingies posts.
