Buttons and glassware

Today I was looking for buttons to finish some of my Christmas presents (you will see photos of the "recycled" gifts on my blog after I have given them away).

The Salvos in Sunbury did not have any buttons, but they did have this lovely set:

The price sticker on the jug reads $9.99 (including the glasses). I snaffled them up straight away!

It is not crystal, nor are there any identifying marks. It certainly looks vintage though, and I like that.

Won't they be pretty for the Christmas table? Or, a posh way to drink home-made lemonade (or should that be margueritas??).

Lemonade! :D
Those are nice.. I've been looking for a pretty tea set, but haven't found one yet!

Wow, what a bargain! I would have snapped them up too - even to give to someone else for Christmas, if I didn't keep them for myself.

Hi, what a wonderful blog, very interesting, I frequent op shops to buy material, they often have some fantastic remnants & only at a fraction of the shop prices.
I make a lot of my own clothes.
