Coffee On The Mind

This post has a coffee theme it came to me while I was having my morning coffee that my boyfriend picked up at our local Tim Hortons.  All my finds in this post were found at the secondhand stores.

I saw this bag it caught my attention and I decided I had to have it.

These brown stacking mugs with a flower design were made in Japan.  I can remember this type of mug in my grandparents cabin in the 70's.  The Pyrex coffee carafe when I saw it I knew I had to have it.

Where are my sticky notes?  These Blue Mountain ashtrays were supposed to be in my last post.  Yes I forgot I should have had a sticky note to remind me.  I plan to use them as coasters as you can see with the Fire King Mug in the picture.

These Pyrex casserole dishes are in the Colonial Mist pattern they all are missing their lids.

The clear rhinestone brooch is a signed piece by Jay Flex Jewelry.  The company was started in Montreal, Canada in the 1930's and operated till the mid 1960's . The company was known for it's workmanship, design and quality in fashion jewelry. Like my piece many where made with rhinestones on sterling silver.

The blue brooch is an unsigned piece.

  18. I like the stacking mugs and the blue pyrex. I have a few Fire King plates with gold trim that were my Mammaw's. Didn't even know they were Fire King until another blogger noticed from one of my photos. I looked at the bottom of the plate, and sure enough, she was right. :) Have a great day. Tammy
