Well....this is the last post for the year.....and I had lots of wonderful treasures to show you.....I took lots of pretty pictures.......and was ready to put my photos into my computer to do my post.....guess what???? No camera cord in sight.....seems the cord got packed in my daughters bag somehow and it is not here.....so......I guess I'll cancel the VTT post this week.......Not Really......but this is going to be short and sweet......and not even my photo, had to swipe one of the internet ......sorry......New Year.....must do better....I did not even get around to visiting everyone last week, I am so sorry for that, time got away from me, and well.....here I am today late getting this new post done......will do better........!

My mom gave me a wonderful gift for Christmas this year. I had asked for a glass tea pitcher like the one my grandma had.....my grandma actually had two, one Amber glass and one Aquamarine in color......my mom could not find the Aquamarine one, but she did find the Amber glass one....

This is a ANCHOR HOCKING LIDO BALL PITCHER, with a ice lip (to catch the ice cubes). Just looking at this brings back wonderful memories of Sunday afternoon dinners at my grandma's house...and wonderful sweet tea served in old jelly jar glasses. I just love it.....

I'll be back next week and will start the New Year off right...Have a safe and wonderful New Year everyone....don't forget to eat your black eyed peas for good luck....and cabbage for money to come your way in the New Year...... Happy Vintage Thingie Thursday everyone!!

  3. Suzanne,
    What a great pitcher! I too remember my grandma having a similar one....only no sweet tea at our house. Sugar never went into the tea my grandma made. To this day I can't drink sweetened tea. (Although both my husband and son will only drink it sweet....go figure!)
    Happy New Year to you and your family. You know VTT is one of my favorites and I look forward to linking up in 2010.

  4. We had the same pitcher, Suzanne, with matching glasses. My mom always served lemonade or iced tea in it.

    Thanks for the memories!! ;-)

  5. What a gorgeous pitcher, Suzanne! My mom gave me a basket full of vintage patterns.
    I like to have red beans and rice on NY Day, a cajun tradition I learned about when I lived in Houston. Simple food to clear out the excesses of the holidays. And it brings luck like black-eyed peas, too.

  6. Suzanne, I am not posting this week because I don't have a vintage thingie to post about. But I just wanted to say what a joy it has been participating in VTT. I'm sure you are incredibly busy and it is truly kind of you to agree to host this each week. Looking forward to next year and VTT!!

    Happy New Year to you,

    Jo

  7. That's a nice pitcher. I imagine the tea will be extra refreshing when it is served in that pitcher.

    I have been making my own easy version of Hoppin John for New Years ever since I learned about blackeye peas being a traditional New Year food.

  8. Ohh, what a gorgeous pitcher. I remember drinking from the jelly glasses and I also remember how frosty cold the littlle fruit jars kept ice tea.

Thank you again for hosting my favorite day of the week. We luvs you.. :).

  12. I do love the shape of the old ball jugs/pitchers, especially with the ice-catchers. And the amber just GLOWS.

    My best to you in the bright promising New Year!!

  18. Throw all your 2009 issues in the trash and give us another exciting 2010 VTT. I really like this tea pitcher, but your tea is good even in a fruit jar.

  19. Suzanne - I just wanted to thank you for being such a great host and giving me the opportunity to get to know you and all the other great people that gather here. It has been a pleasure and blessing.

    All good things to you and your family in 2010.

  20. Suzanne your pitcher is wonderful. What a special treasure since it belonged to your Grandmother.
    Hope this coming year is a very good one for you and your family. It has been a pleasure getting to be in your group and meet you and others while having fun posting on VTT.

  21. Hello Suzanne, You made me laugh about the cord issue. I have done the same thing. I am more guilty of taking a bunch of photos only to discover no card. Ouch, that really hurts.

    I found a message that I am sharing with my dear blogging friends. Did I thank you for the Christmas card? Thank you very much for your thoughtfulness.

    Here's to you and your family...
    Each moment in a day has its own value.
    Morning brings HOPE,
    Afternoon brings FAITH,
    Evening brings LOVE,
    Night brings REST,
    Hope you will have all of them everyday.
    HAPPY NEW YEAR 2010.

    Love, Jeanne

  25. Whew! It has been a whirlwind these past couple of weeks! Yay! for our visiting young'uns!

    Thank you dear friend for stopping in and commenting! I love your Vintage Thingy Thursdays & I learned the reason for the shape of the ice lip-that is so smart! (and although I havent been able to hop aboard yet. I am thankful to get at least two posts a month with having a full time work schedule since Oct).

    I hope that your new traditions will be the start of Christmas memories filled with lots and lots of blessings!

    Hau'oli Makahiki Hou!
    (Hawaiian for Happy New Year!)

    Blessings & Aloha!
    (Oh yes, I also want to say...you have a gorgeous daughter and very handsome son :o) Congratulations to your daughter on her graduation!

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!
