A NEW PAIR OF GLASSES~~Rednesday

I just have to share with you my new pair of glasses!!!
No silly, not that kind of glasses!
This kind! These rooster glasses are just like the ones that I would drink orange juice out of every morning when I was at my Grandma's house. 
I don't remember Grandma ever using frozen concentrated juice, but odds are that once in a while she probably did. Maybe she only served freshly squeezed orange juice when family visited. All I know is that when I was there, it was always freshly squeezed, and it was always yummy! 
She would then put the juice in this bottle, and even at that young age, I loved this bottle and knew that one day I must have it for my very own. It now sits on a shelf in my kitchen, and every time I see it, I think of Grandma. LOVE the lily-of-the-valley!
My new pair of glasses are a great addition to what is turning out to be a nice little collection! How many will be enough? Honestly, every time I find one of these, it transports me back to Grandma's house, a place filled with so many happy memories for me. How could I ever stop buying something that makes me so happy? So, the answer is this: There are crazy cat ladies, and then there will be me, the crazy rooster glass lady!      If you would like to see more reds, visit Sue at It's A Very Cherry World!

I think I'd have to pick them up any time I saw those swanky swigs too! Someday my own grandchildren are going to be so confused trying to find anything they remember from my house, everything here is from the 50s! Hee hee!

I think that until you start seeing episodes of "Hoarding: Buried Alive: Rooster Glass edition," you're probably safe.

I love drinking glasses...all mine are mis-matched. I like the way they look in the cupboard. There are some for actual drinking...and some are Looky-No-Touchy glasses. Cute post! =D

Your juice glasses are divine and that lily of the valley container is just precious. What a treasure.

I would say your grandmother squeezed her oranges for the juice in these glasses.

I love love love fresh squeezed juice. How wonderful to have your grandmas pitcher! I adore your juice glasses - I've been on the hunt for some for a long time, with no luck.

Happy Rednesday!

Cute glasses!!

Tammy@T's Daily Treasures said...

They are lovely. And such wonderful memories, too. I have food memories from visits to my Mammaw's home in Mississippi. She made the best divinity; always had fresh shelled pecans in the freezer (the kind of freezer that was drawers at the bottom with the refrigerated portion on top) and the yummiest fig preserves ever. :) Wishing you a wonderful day. Tammy

When I was young we used the left over jelly jars for juice glasses since they were the right size for us I suppose. I love these glasses and adore Roosters in the kitchen. I have a few of my own. Wonderful taste!

Of those glasses there will never be enough! LOL

I really like those glasses and your Grandma's jar!! I would say 8 would be a good set but if you find more than that, I wouldn't hesitate to grab them.

That is a GREAT morning glory tablecloth or runner that you have with your glasses!!

Stay inside and keep cool.

So sunny and bright! Love when we find something our Grandma had, I think that's the reason I got into vintage so much in the beginning!
