This week while out “Thrifting with the Gals” in Ogunquit, Maine I discovered these beautiful amethyst water goblets. I always love finding sets of unique vintage glassware especially the old colored glassware.
I rarely see amethyst glasses in my antiquing adventures so I snatched these 6 beauties up for $24.
Is it amethyst, lavender, or purple?
Hmmm, I wonder if they are wine glasses or water goblets?
I also found this cute wire basket with sand dollars. These went for $24, which I thought was a bit high, but there’s so much I could do with them. So they also came home with me.
But you know what? Once I got home and looked up these glasses online I realized they are not vintage! You could have fooled me.
So today here is a link to these beautiful thrifted amethyst 10 Strawberry Street Vatican 8 Oz Amethyst Glasses, available thru Amazon!! They are simply gorgeous!
In my younger days, and let’s face it, today too, a dear friend and I would always say, “It’s all about the glass” when we would dine out.
There is a new restaurant near us here called Walkers of Maine. And I love all the various vintage glassware they serve their refreshments in. Once I swear I was drinking from a glass right out of the tv show, The Partridge Family with all its colored patterns!
Do you know of any restaurants around you that use vintage glassware for their patrons?
To highlight the glassware in our sunroom I clipped these lilac branches and propped them into an $8 thrifted vase.
Some freshwater and mint from the backyard, and this got me thinking…
What else would make these beautiful amethyst vintage-looking glasswares even more enjoyable?
Well, a lemon and mint yes! But…
I reached out to some of my blogging gals and put together this round-up of fantastic all-season drink recipes that you can try out in your own thrifted and vintage glassware.

I learned recently when I was decorating our home with all the spring lilacs that the color purple with dark antique woods truly complements one another.
And have you ever created an ice bucket before?
