Vintage Find & A Winner

 
Hi everyone.
 
Before I show you my newest find I want to announce the winner of the
$75 shop credit to French Country Love.

Congrats to Coastal Femme!  I have sent you an email.
 
Last week I was browsing through pictures of upcoming Estate sales when
I saw what looked like the neck of a demijohn.  The picture was blurry and
the bottle was hidden behind some other items. 
 
I told Steve I was going to the sale the next day and what I might have found.
His response was "just what we need is another demijohn".  Note sarcasm!
 
This large bottle was a steal and it is a car boy shape that I don't already have. 
Of course Steve went with me, carried the bottle and never complained.
 
Below is my new find set up in the sun room.
 


 
Below are pictures of my other demijohns in our previous home. Right now
they are all in storage, along with everything else we own
 
  
  
  




  

Looks like I may have a little obsession! 
 
How about you, what do you collect?
 
xx,
Sherry

Sherry...you are one lucky girl! This is so pretty, I love that color! I know it must bring you down to have all of your treasures in storage but I hope soon you will have a home for everything.

XO,
Jane

Awesome find Sherry! You have a great collection of demijohns...I started collecting them last year and add a new one every chance I get:)

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

That is a nice one, Sherry. You do have quite a collection. You have more than me. lol

Looks like you may need to learn how to make wine! I love the new one, it's beautiful and you have to love a husband who carries and doesn't complain...I have one of those too!

I love all of your glass demijohns! Your newest one was a great find. It is going to feel like Christmas when you finally unwrap everything to put in your new house.

Honey what don't I collect? LOL

I have never let myself start with the large jugs even though I like them
I am really trying to collect vintage buttons and antique jewelry however I like anything old and have had it or sold it from my house yard sales

While cleaning out my clutter, I discovered I had a collection of vintage eye glasses I did not know existed. Love your demijohns especially the group in the wicker shopping basket.

Believe it or not, even though I'm a 'lifestyle' blogger, I collect evening handbags. I like to display a few at a time on my bedroom wall and some on a shelf. I don't have dozens, but quite a few.

I have a green demijohn and I never knew that's what it was called. Thanks for the info.

I'm following along to see where you end up Sherry. I'm sure you may not remember, but hopefully in the not too distant future we will be looking for our forever home too. Good luck!

Gorgeous collection of demijohns....and that one is HUGE!

I never knew they came in green glass. How beautiful! A piece of art! Spode is my oldest collection, beginning with my wedding china of 50 years ago, Blue Bird. But I can rarely resist more patterns as there aren't many Spode patterns I don't like. And now, the old Italian fish that have stollen my heart!

Love it! And love those large ones in your collection! We're starting to get our house ready to sell, and it's killing me having to "get rid" of everything so it looks like no one lives here! And we have three kids, so it's almost impossible if you ask me. Anyway, glad you found a new one to add to your collection.

beautiful color in the glass, it almost sparkles a rainbow!

Eilis said...

I collect snowmen, and I'm looking forward to unpacking for Christmas decorating soon! I just purchased my first demijohn, and I love your collection of them.

Ron said...

WOW! You have a great collection of demijohns. I love your new bottle, too! I haven't heard from you in a while. Have a great week, Sherry! xo

Lynn @The Vintage Nest said...

All your glass bottles will be perfect in a beach home Sherry. What is a carboy? xoxo

Joi said...

Another fabulous find! I hope it won't be long before you have all your beautiful things out again, Sherry!

Joi said...

Another fabulous find, Sherry! I hope it won't be long before you're able to have all of your pretty things out!

Hartwood Roses said...

There you are ... right back in the saddle collecting those bargain treasures that we all love you for!

Collections? In various places through our house you can find vintage rose paintings, dozens of textile bobbins, beveled mirrors with frames of all shapes and sizes, vintage silverplated flatware, oriental rugs, and lots of other things. The hunt for reasonably priced treasures is one of my forms of entertainment ... yours, too, I know.

No news on the new house front yet? Not hurrying, I know. I know that whatever home you choose will be a very special place, once you get to put your personal touch on it.

Thank you so much for featuring my post on the French Style Home Tour. I do hope you have a lovely Thanksgiving with your family, sometimes I wish we celebrated this event in New Zealand. We have to wait a whole year for Christmas with nothing in between.
