Vintage Thingies Thursday




As all of you know today is Vintage Thingies Thursday. Our hostess for this vintage day is Coloradolady. However, I am using it today for a twofold purpose.





This is a vintage medicine measuring glass. On one side it measures l oz to 3cc. The other side measures 2 tablespoons to 8 teaspoons. I am not sure when these were discontinued and paper throw away replaced them.


On the bottom of the glass is American, 14 45, Hospital Supply Corp.


These are vintage Frigidaire 1950's colorful wall decorations or spoon rest finished in porcelain. On the back is imprinted the "Pot Rooster". These were giveaways when you purchased a Frigidaire product.


I want to take this time to let you know, Friday will be my 100th post for this year. I chose to acknowledge it today on Coloradolady's day because if it had not been for her I would not be blogging. She set it up and just informed me to get with it. I am sure there have been many times, she has regretted it. I get myself into blog trouble real often. She, along with some of you, have been a tremendous help to me in making this possible. I never in my wildest dreams imagined I would make it to a 100th post. It has been fun, and feel as though I have made so many new friends. Without all of your comments and support, I would not have survived. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Early congrats on your 100th post, LV! It sure flies by fast, doesn't it? I think I'm only at 74!
That medicine measuring cup is interesting. I wonder what would require taking 8 teaspoons of medicine! And I have one of those rooster wall decorations! Now I just have to figure out where I put it!
Happy VTT!

Congrats LaVoyce on your 100th post. I'm so proud of you. Your posts are always so interesting.

Growing up in Viriginia, my parents had a Frigiaiire frig ---and we had one of those Pet Rooster porcelain spoon rests... Wish I still had it. That is so neat to see that one.

Thanks for a great post.
Hugs,
Betsy

Yeah for 100 posts, LaVoice! I love that medicine cup. I can't believe it goes all the way up to 8 Tb. I've never taken more than 2 of any medication.

LV,

Love that old vintage medicine cup! Oh how something like that would be so handy instead of all the plastic ones that some medicines come with. You can never remember which one goes with which medicine. This would solve that problem.

WOO HOO! 100 posts upcoming, Yeah! Congratulations!!

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

I've never seen a little medicine cup like that. How interesting. I used those plastic thingies that looked like cigars with my kids. Never really knew if I measured it correctly or not. Oh well, they seem OK. Congrats on the big 100! That's awesome.
