These are great! I love picnics when it gets a little cooler. Thanks for sharing!

I've seen that cooler before. They are very valuable now. I like your baskets, too.
I have always had a picnic basket. My first one was purchased with S&H Green Stamps. It was red woven with a wooden top. I think I gave it to Mom when I got my Longaburger one. Now my older sister has it. My LB basket has a hinge broken. Lately, I've used the bag that came with my sewing machine.
We have always carried our baskets on road trips, vacations as well as impromtu picnics.

I love old picnic stiff too! My collection isn't anywhere near as extensive as yours is though. I have one old piece that I can't quite figure out the exact use of. It's similar to a large round thermos almost (like 2 ft tall) It's made of metal and is double walled. Like I said, I'm clueless, but I love it just the same, lol. You have such pretty things, dear.

Rechelle ~Walnuthaven Cottage~ said...

How fantastic is this? Very! I'm so loving your collection. I've got a few pieces here and there and a fantabulous Coca Cola 50s ice cooler. I think it's great you use your vintage pieces. I do too!
Those thermoses are wonderful. I remember my dad having some similar to that. Now i"m on a quest to find one of my own!
Enjoy your day thanks for sharing!

RobinfromCA said...

What great vintage things! I would never have thought of collecting vintage picnic items but now, every time I see something I'm going to be tempted thinking of your wonderful collection!


krys kirkpatrick said...

I love picnic baskets also. I have opened a little antique spot and have 3 for sale. Including a beautiful pale aqua one that I have had for over 20 years. But....I am into less so I hope it goes to a good home.

salmagundi said...

Love, love, love your picnic stuff. I've always wanted to collect it, but have held off. I've bought some for a friend that does collect it though. Yours is the best. Sally

Mrs.T said...

What a wonderful, wonderful collection of vintage picnic things. I have a picnic basket just like the one on the lower right, and I have several of the same Thermoses too.

Thanks so much for sharing these things and also for stopping by my kitchen table. Stop in and visit anytime!

God bless,

Sharlotte said...

Cool! I really like your vintage items! The thermos containers seem to have their own personality...they are very cute. Thanks for sharing!

Gattina said...

Apparently I belong to "vintage" too by now, because all these things we used when I was in my teen age, lol !

debi said...

Well, I say, pack those babies up and go on a picnic before it's too cold! It looks like you're definitely ready!

Angelica Bays, said...

How sweet! I can just imagina a picnic being so much more fun just using your vintage items. Very cute!

Hey, I just had to stop by and say Hi to another 'Lily'. Not that it's my name, but all of my doll's names end in Lily! Maybe I'll start putting it @ the beginning instead? :o)


How original! I love this. I often times looked at vintage picnic cases in my Country Living magazines and thougt how neat it would be to not only own one but USE one with my family! And you do get to use it! How wonderful! Are these some of the items you have to hide out at your bff's house? LOL! Thanks so much for sharing!

Brenda said...

I have several picnic baskets. (I'd have three, but as pups my dogs ate one...) And I love them because not only do they look nice, but such great storage too. Love your picnic collection!

Kim @ Starshine Chic said...

I just love, love, love your vintage picnic collection. It's fabulous!!!

~~Carol~~ said...

Oh my goodness, I love all of this stuff! Especially the jugs and the yellow ice chest! I'm still on the lookout for a PINK jug!
Happy Columbus Day!
