When I started this collection I did kind of have a need for it. Ivan has a fairly extensive collection of beer glasses but we didn't have very many glasses to offer people drinks in that weren't teensy or plastic. I had spied these types of glasses hanging around the thrift store a few times but resisted the urge to snatch them up. They are glasses that have flowers on them representing the months of the year with a little description of the flower on the back.
And here is the back of the glass just to give you an idea of what they say.
I am probably too excited about my glasses and I get really nerdy and like to use the glass that corresponds to the month that we are in. I'm having a problem right now because I haven't found August yet. What the heck am I supposed to drink out of? Another really dorky thing I like to do is when people come over, give them a drink in their birthday month glass. I am slightly terrified of breaking them because recently a certain cat who will remain nameless broke my awesome "Nag Nag Nag" glass that I didn't even get a photo of. Maybe once I have the entire set they will go on lock down and become display only glasses.
Have you seen these glasses before? If you are local you better not think they are cool and grab them at the thrift store before me!
(totally stole this photo from Kaylah's blog but it's me so is it really stealing?)
luv, love the glasses. so cute. you enjoy them!! (:ReplyDelete
Ohh Month Glasses are so pretty.. I like them so much..:))But I like your nail colors so so much.. Happy Birthday Kaylah..:))ReplyDelete
Those glasses are lovely! And I'll have to pop over to Kaylah's blog to wish her a good one :DReplyDelete
I was smiling when reading your list of things you brought back from Australia but went deadpan when you mention used toilet paper...haha! I even tried to justify it before I continued reading, "Well maybe she means a square that was unused but on the roll she was using..." I love your posts.ReplyDelete
Hahahaha! I love that you tried to justify the toilet paper thing. How sweet of you! :DDelete
I love your little glasses. They are completely precious. Adorable!ReplyDelete
I love these! I want a cute collection of thrift store stuff, like jars, glasses, or something else that is cute for the kitchen.ReplyDelete
Those glasses are the cutest little concept! The fact that they have flower facts on the back kind of just takes the cake. :)ReplyDelete
Oh man, I spotted the FULL COLLECTION of those in a vintage shop some time last year, I was blown away by how pretty they are, and extremely stoked that the August (my birthday month) was Poppies, a flower I've been in love with and plan on getting tattooed to represent my mother. ANYWAY! I didn't have any money with me the day (why was I even there??) and I hope to find them, or at least some again some day soon. Even though now if I find anyway I will be tempted to send them your way!ReplyDelete
Oh sweet!!! I have been finding these ones not at vintage shops so they are not very expensive at all. I'm excited that August is poppies, I bet it is a pretty one!Delete
Yeah that was another bummer, they were probably over priced! You sure get some lucky finds in NON vintage shops! :)Delete
so cute! those glasses are precious.ReplyDelete
so pretty! do you watch breaking bad?? because lily of the valley had a huge role in last season's finale, and now I'd kill for that lily of the valley glass! hahaReplyDelete
I have only seen a bit of Season One of Breaking Bad. I'll watch it one day!Delete
I super duper duper urge you to watch Breaking Bad!Delete
Well, I will keep my eyes out for August. You have to have that one cuz it's MY birthday month. :) Yes, I was paying attention. EW, not used? hehe Love your sense of humor as always. Thanks for sharing! xoxoReplyDelete
It's Ivan's birthday month too, I really want to find it!!Delete
hehe, thanks :)
Those glasses are lovely! I've never seen those before.ReplyDelete
I would definitely buy the April and May glasses if I came across them. =)
P.S. I have a selfish request...would you be so kind as to write out what the back of the April glass says and write it in a reply to my comment. It looks like the flowers are daisies and I'm curious what the words are. Please and thank you!
As sweet as new mown meadow hay; the Daisy flowers every field, waving and nodding its head in the wind as if it held a secret.
Those glasses are so pretty! I've never seen them, but I'd be snatching them up at thrift shops if I saw them!ReplyDelete
Those glasses are so cute! I wish I could go to Australia :/ReplyDelete
I LOVE love love these glasses. It really makes me want to etch or paint my own "glass of month" glasses!ReplyDelete
Every single time I read your blog, I think "Elycia is so super cute. I want to be friends with her." Every. Single. Time. ♥ReplyDelete
My Grandmother has these glasses and I've had my eye on them forever! I have a few beautiful deep blue ones from her too that have frosty white flowers and butterflies on them. You'd never think a girl could ever get the feeling of wanting to hug a glass until you see these! She has such wonderful taste. If I visit, I always get juice in my September glass! Love that you're collecting them and will have to keep my eyes peeled while thrifting.ReplyDelete
I love these glasses; so cute! I shall keep my eye out for them, so I could send them your way.ReplyDelete
Oh man, I am SO bad about collecting bits and pieces of..... everything. I always tell myself I will use it in an art project someday. Someday just hasn't come for many things yet.ReplyDelete
You might appreciate this! For the second collage on this post, I walked around the area near my apartment for an hour, collected pieces of paper-y type items and came home and made a collage! http://unboredhands.blogspot.com/2011/12/collaging.html
Yeah! Come to australia again, and stay with me! I'll let you cart all our garbage home in your suitcase.ReplyDelete
Seriously though, those glasses are so cute. I have a nerdy habit of matching my coffee mug to my outfit. I have a fairly serious coffee mug collection.
Those glasses are so lovely! I have a few vintage glasses but I am so terrified of breaking them!ReplyDelete
I collected loads of rubbish when I went to America. Yep, that included food wrappers!
Ooo yay, a Lily of the Valley glass.. my favorite flower! Those glasses are really neat and so pretty!ReplyDelete
awesome glass collection!! I've never seen those while out thrifting! I wish I did!!ReplyDelete
And I LOVE that card!! You + Kaylah are so amazing together!
I love these glasses! I have the January one for myself (as I'm a January baby) and got the February one for my mom. I kick myself for not buying almost an entire set of them last year at a yard sale. Ah, hindsight, you are so much clearer!ReplyDelete
Your set looks so utterly charming all together!
lol. I enjoy your posts. :)ReplyDelete
