I used these glasses in my Tablescape Thursday post, and they are vintage!
We seem to think that these days we are more patriotic than we used to be....or that women didn't USED to decorate or feel like our dishes and glassware were important. But, I'm here to tell you, that's not true.
As well as these glasses go with my dinnerware, I want you to know - they are over 40 years old. I know I've told you before about how my dad saved coupons from oil cases and redeemed them for my bicycle (header) when I was a little girl. Well, they also gave away these awesome patriotic glasses. Remember, this was during the Vietnam era, and we were patriotic then too. Well, at least those of us with friends and loved ones over there.
The only problem with these glasses are they are very fragile, th in, hard to use without breaking, but makes great tablescapes. I still have a place setting of 12, and use them very seldom. Just another one of those things that I have left from my Daddy, that I cherish!
