Vintage Thingie Thursdays

I have a lot of "favorites" in my house. My husband knows that in our many moves there are those things that I would probably fall apart if I did not have, my art work is a huge one of those things, but the 1950's Cocktail tray above is like a security blanket to me. Years ago my parents had a house full of vintage goodies and I fell in love with almost everything. I acquired this cocktail tray from my mother as well as quite a few other great vintage pieces I will be saving for later, and it makes me feel like home. My parents no longer live in the house I grew up in, so I can't honestly go "home" anymore and with our extremely transient lifestyle, having special pieces that can make you feel warm inside is so very important. So I hope on our next upcoming move that this tray makes it safely and can start making our next house feel like home.

Participate in Vintage Thingie Thursdays at Confessions of an Apron Queen


  1. That is so great and screams the
    50's when the cocktail hour was so "in" Enjoy your goodies...

  2. No wonder you love this tray. I loved it immediately and do not have the emotional attachment to it that you do. It must be hard moving so often, but it is nice to have a few things that you hang onto regardless.

  3. What a cute vintage tray. I love it. Very 50's. Sorry I am so late in commenting, I had a hard time getting back to the VTT site on apron queen's site for some reason. Great vintage tray.
