Vintage Thingie Thursday: Bear Salt & Pepper Shakers and Glasses

Hello Everyone! Welcome to this weeks segment of Vintage Thingies Thursday.

Thursday is the day to showcase your vintage treasures and to share your special things with everyone.

If you are visiting and would like to join us, please do. It is very easy! All you have to do is:
(1) do a post about something vintage.
(2) Visit all the participates and leave a comment.
(3) Link in with the Mr. Linky at the bottom of this post.
(4) Be sure to refer back to my blog so everyone can see who is participating today, and if you like include the VTT button in your post. Please be sure to have your post up before linking in. Thanks so much.

Sorry, I really don't like complicated rules for these memes, so I have tried to simplify this down to the minimum. Don't be shy, we have fun every week. Join us if you can.

This week, I would like to show you a few of my bear items. These are really a fun collectible. I always smile when I see some of my bear treasures.

These are a pair of brown bear salt and pepper shakers. I purchased these at an estate sale for $3.00. I love the spaghetti bodies of these little bears. I think they are very unusual and are a nice addition to my vintage bear items.

Next, I have several of my bear glasses....some may call these Swanky Swigs. This glass is one of my larger type of glasses. Notice the cute little bears stealing honey and the bees coming after them.

Here is the other side view of the glass. Don't you think these are so cute and happy little glasses?

This is another larger glass that I have, but the design is a little different but similar just the same. This one has pine trees, and one little bear stealing the honey...but it has the same angry bees!

This is the smallest glass I have, this is more of a juice glass. Still, the theme is the same, bears after honey and the bees not too pleased.

I hope you enjoyed a look at my vintage glasses and salt and pepper shakers in a bear theme. Be sure to link in to this post and show off some of your vintage treasures today. Have a great week everyone!

  2. The salt and pepper shakers are adorable. Because I find food in everything, the "fur" reminded me of chocolate Rice Krispy treats.

  16. How much fun! I feel that I know you from reading your comments with Gitz so today I came over to say HI!
    I'm going to try to do this next week, I love the idea.
    I think those salt and pepper shakers are darling, every time I'm in an antique store there is at least 1 booth with the cutest vintage S&P shakers. Next time I'm buying a set! (Love the glasses too)

    I'm pretty certain my grandmother had some bear/bee glasses like yours. Brought back some memories for me that were long forgotten. I think your bear salt and pepper shakers are quite unusual and interesting...very cute! Thanks for sharing them!

  23. I don't see Mr. Linky. I'm playing along today: http://litandlaundry.blogspot.com/2009/01/vintage-thingies-thursday-bay-bridge.html

    I love those glasses. I have an old book about "Little Bear" who looks just like that character. I'll dig it out. Love those glasses. It's so fun to see people collecting around a theme.

  24. Oh Suzanne! I'm coming over right away for a frosty cold glass of milk out of those adorable glasses!
    I am in love.

    And the bears...so oddly attractive. I don't think I'd want them though. I think they look like dust catchers! lol.

    From one Bear collector to another--your bears are the cutest! And the Swanky Swigs, besides being so very cute too--are also very unique! Enjoyed!

Sometimes someone says something really small, and it's like it fits into this empty space in your heart!

Thank you for stopping by and leaving your thoughts here, they really mean a lot to me!
