Vintage Alphabet Party

It's that time again when Etsy Cottage Style Blog celebrates vintage treasures and creations featuring three letters of the alphabet. This is the first time for me to participate and what fun it is. To view more participants and their treasures click HERE and visit Etsy Cottage Style

Today's party is brought to you by the letters I, J, and K.

(I) can be a challenge, but I thought I would share my Italian Tea Set from Italy. It belonged to my grandmother and was passed on to me as a gift in our first move away from our home state of Michigan. It remains in perfect condition and I love it. Grandma knew I would care for it always. The set is shown here with 2 cups but I have all 6 in the set. I have displayed it throughout my cottage home, but for now it shows beautifully on my vintage cedar chest at the foot of the bed in the master bedroom.

The next letter is J and Vintage Jewelry comes to mind. Through the years I have gathered a nice collection of vintage jewels collected and passed down from my mother and grandma. Here are a few pins and earrings with pin sets.

Lastly our letter is K another challenging letter, but I have a few things in the knick knack catagory to share.
Bird figurines have always been a favorite of mine since I was first married and these are a few from my collection.

This concludes my Vintage Alphabet Party and the sharing of a few treasures this time. I so look forward to the next set in about a month. In the meantime, I have a lot going on in the studio to keep very busy. Many new hand painted and designed pretties coming your way to my shoppes.

Speaking of studios and creatve spaces. This past weekend's Where Bloggers Create Party was fantastic and so inspiring to visit the many wonderful spaces around blogland. If you are still visiting parites, I would love for you to attend mine by clicking HERE and going to that post for my Creative Space. From that post you can also click to visit the many others that participated. This year's party had 450 participants, so we may be partying all Summer long! You will enjoy the fantastic spaces that Creative Bloggers call their own. Big or small they are all special!
Enjoy and till next time, remember Stephanie of Angelic Accents Wedding Blog Party coming this Friday the 25th. I will be there and I hope to see you too.

Hugs, Celestina Marie

Awwww...Celestina.... Your tea set is all that much more wonderful hearing how you got it. I love the knick-knacks but my absolute favorite is all your vintage BLING!! Love it!!
Have a Wonderful Day!

Stephanie ~ Angelic Accents said...

I so enjoy seeing your "Alphabet" goodies! Your grandmother's Teaset is beautiful and such a treasure. Of course I love all the bling and it is even more special when it belonged to a loved one before ~ do you have any photographs of your relatives wearing some of it? I love that sweet silver teapot lamp and the precious little pink-breasted bird planter next to it. Don't think I've ever seen either of those before ~ what room are they in?

You are just too sweet to post about the WEDDING party again! I think we are going to have a great time Friday. Looking forward to what you will be sharing, sweets!

Big TX Hugs,
Angelic Accents

Hi Celestina! So glad you got to join in the party!
Your 'I'talian tea set is beautiful. Your vintage 'J'ewelry is wonderful, and love how the
"k"nick-knacks went to the birds.
Your vintage alphabet has so many special finds.

Hello, Celestina Marie,
The tea set from your grandmother is gorgeous. I can see why you treasure it so as a gift from her. Your vintage jewelry is charming, and I loved seeing your birds and bird nests. I, too, love birds, birdhouses, and nests. I plan on joining Stephanie for her wedding party. Have a wonderful week~ Vicki

Hi Celestina, I am doing a little reading and commenting tonight. It has been a couple of long days with my test and hubby's doctor appointment today. They stretch something at the top of my throat that I can't pronounce and took two biospies to make sure there is no infection. He told me I have a small hernia. The test made the throat a little sore so I am eating soft food at the moment. The swallow test came back o.k. which is good. I appreciate all of you that were saying prayers for me. I know they tell you that you have nothing to worry about, but you still get up tight. I think we are going to be o.k. with the iron levels. His red count was good. The only things out of whack was the white counts and platelets, but we are working on that. You have a beautiful studio and I enjoyed the post very much even though I don't think I left a comment. You have a wonderful day and thank you for asking how the test went. Your Missouri Friend

Como vai Celestina?

Excelente post!
Mas, o que mais me chamou a atenção foi a capa do livro do alfabeto, pois lembrei do meu tempo de escola em que apareciam nos nossos livros os mesmos desenhos de meninos...fui viajar um pouco pela minha infância...uma doce recordação! :))))

Gosh what a great job you did for the alphabet! I just love vintage jewelry too and I am always on the look out for the next great piece to add!

Hi Celestina Marie,

What a lovely post today and I enjoyed seeing some of the treasures around your home.
I adore your sweet Italian teaset and even more precious that it belonged to your Grandmother.
Also the jewellery is so pretty as are the cute birds.

I hope that you are having a wonderful week.
