I Tumble For Ya


When I was in Jacksonville, FL I bought these amazing vintage aluminum/ metal tumblers.  I have been so busy, I haven’t had the time to figure out what to do with them.  Not only do I adore the colors , but I LOVE the scratches on the tumblers… it gives them so much character!

After looking up the brand (Bascal, an Italian company), I discovered they were popular in the 1940’s and 1950’s.  Out of curiosity, I went to my trusty eBay to see how much they were worth… apparently they range from $4.99 to $50.  Ummm…. can someone call up Lara Spencer for me? (That’s a Flea Market Flip reference for those of y’all that aren’t familiar) and can you also put in a good word for me to be on Flea Market Flip?

Love, love, love the vintage/ retro feel of these tumblers

Here’s my dilemma: what should I do with these tumblers?  I definitely don’t want to drink out of them, but would rather display them.  So far the only idea I can come up with is to plant some small flowers or herbs in them, BUT the downfall is that there’s no way to drain the water unless I drill holes in the bottom and I have a confession: I have no green thumb. So it might be back to the drawing board for me!

I’m open for any suggestions!




Ok y’all, I made it to Charlotte in one piece. Not too bad for my first flight by myself! I thought I was going to have to apologize to the person sitting next to me in case I spazzed out, but that wasn’t the case… I had the whole row to myself! Had I needed to grab onto someone’s arm, I would have been SOL!

Now I wait for my connecting flight to Jacksonville, FL!  I wonder if someone will be sitting beside me or if I’ll be hanging out by myself again… only time will tell.

Stay tuned!
