Thrift Report: Smokin'

Hi friends! I did just a little bit of thrifting this weekend, and apparently I was in a 1970s smoked glass kind of mood. Here's what I picked up:



Some pretty smoked brown lowball glasses. Is it me, or do they have almost a bamboo-esque shape when stacked?



A pristine set of smoked navy wine glasses....



...and the matching navy smoked dessert cups. I love the shape of these!


I hope you all had a relaxing weekend full of lots of thrift scores!  Apologies for the brief post, but I have to get back to the OSCARS! {BTW: Has anyone else noticed that they've completed removed the words "Academy Awards" from the telecast?  So weird!}

    1. It IS weird how we sometimes find things in multiples. I'm willing to bet I won't find any more smoked glass for months. :)

  9. Love the blue glass! I didn't even notice they dropped the "Academy Awards." Everybody thinks titles have to be short and snappy nowadays. Do they think young people are stupid?

    1. Maybe...or just that they have very short attention spans! (?) It was just strange to hear them open the show with "Welcome to the OSCARS!" - rather than, "Welcome to the __th Annual Academy Awards."
