Hmmm…Pretty sure it’s a  #lagardotackett lid (or a direct copy) but the rest of the jar? I saw one like it on eBay listed as Tackett but I am not convinced. Anyone want to weigh in?  #IBoughtItForTheLid  #cookiejar  #mcm  #midcenturymodern

This guy’s world-weary expression cracks me up. Just listed in my Etsy shop: Egghead condom storage jar by Lagardo Tackett, 1958. Follow@link in profile, if interested.  #lagardotackett  #lagardotackettegg  #playboy  #mcm  #midcenturymodern  #etsy  #mostlymidmodern

Together at last! Thrifted these separately over the last couple of years. Sold the blue one before I found the green and remember wishing at the time that I had gotten to photograph them all together. Blue vase was shipped off to Austria last December to a very kind and patient customer. After three months of waiting and both of us trying in vain to track on our ends I refunded his costs. This nice person would have waited longer but it just didn’t seem right to me. I told him he could just keep it if it ever reached him. It arrived back home to NH a few days ago bearing stamps from Austria and Vietnam?!!! (Vienna, Vietnam, I dunno…) Anyway, I was positive it would be in pieces but thanks to @mike_lynch_cartoons professional packing job it survived several continents, seven month being lost in the mail,  and the USPS and I finally got my picture of the three of them.  #carlomoretti  #carlomorettiglass  #pencilneckvase  #satinatovase  #satinatoglass  #italianglass  #mcm  #midcenturymodern

Was just saying I haven’t found any Martz in ages. Then, one yesterday, one today. Love the tiny lamp, which I happened to have the perfect shade for.  #martzlamps  #martzmarshallstudios  #gordonandjanemartz  #mcm  #midcenturymodern  #thriftstorefinds  #thriftscore  #martzmonday

This tiny monster, “Tank”, has stolen my heart in no time. Though supposedly about 1.5 years old, he is about the size of a 6-8 month old kitten - about half the size of Dexter and Fergus. So sweet and so ferocious!  #cats  #catsofinstagram  #rescuecat  #tigercat

Thrift Score-ish: Found 2 of these large plates by  #bjornwiinblad for  #rosenthalstudioline this week. Big (13 inches ), bold and beautiful and I love it. The “ish” is because while purchased at the thrift store, the price was more than I like to spend. Damn their “handpicked” area! Still had to have them tho.  #thriftstorefinds  #thriftscore  #thriftbreak  #mcm  #midcenturymodern

Favorite find of the weekend:  #desimonepottery large floor vase. Any experts out there who can help me date this thing? There is the usual signature on the bottom plus a label, reading “Maioliche d’arte de Simone”, which I understand was his studio. Signature also on front of vase. Thanks in advance.  #desimone  #italianpottery  #mcm  #midcenturymodern  #thrifted  #thriftscore  #thriftbreak

Was I nuts to buy this? @mike_lynch_cartoons probably thinks so. It’s an old, beat up refrigerator door painted to look like an old fashioned soda machine. I remember that kind of machine from my rural childhood - how cold those sodas were on a sweltering North Carolina summer day. Soda from a glass bottle tasted so much better!!!! The painting  cost practically nothing and was described as  #outsiderart  though not sure if that’s true. But it spoke to me and will look amazing in my kitchen, so home with me it came.  #naiveart  #vintagesodamachine

Two pieces of pottery I was very fond of - destroyed by this innocent-looking beast! Luckily, I am more fond of him than the pottery!  #catsofinstagram  #terrorcat  #andersenpottery  #angelafina

 #thriftstore find from last night: earliest edition of  #dansk  #kobenstyle in lime green! Was only issued for one year (1955), so it’s pretty rare. In decent shape too (has a few dings but who doesn’t at that age?).  #danskkobenstyle  #mcm  #midcenturymodern  #enamelware  #vintagekitchen  #thriftstorefinds  #thriftbreak
