Oh! My! Lord!

Hello, Dear Ones!
Let me say it again...
OH!  MY!  LORD!

Yes siree Bob! 
Look what I found for $20!!

I have admired these kinds of canister sets for so long.

Sweet little lids.
I did find out that they are made by Royal Sealy and the pattern is called Heritage Blue Onion and probably were produced around the 1950s.

Aren't these wonderful canisters?
I'm totally in love with them!
Can you love olden canisters?
Why you bet your sugar lumps you can!

I got a couple of little extra treats:
a napkin holder

and...
a darling tea pot!!

You could say I'm on Cloud Nine at the moment!!
Can I please say it again...
OH!   MY!   LORD!


Pin It

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia :)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Top of the World


Such a feelin's comin' over me

There is wonder in most everything I see

Not a cloud in the sky

Got the sun in my eyes

And I won't be surprised if it's a dream



Everything I want the world to be

Is now coming true especially for me

And the reason is clear

It's because you are here

You're the nearest thing to heaven that I've seen



I'm on the top of the world lookin' down on creation

And the only explanation I can find

Is the love that I've found ever since you've been around

Your love's put me at the top of the world



Something in the wind has learned my name

And it's tellin' me that things are not the same

In the leaves on the trees and the touch of the breeze

There's a pleasin' sense of happiness for me



There is only one wish on my mind

When this day is through I hope that I will find

That tomorrow will be just the same for you and me

All I need will be mine if you are here

I'm on the top of the world lookin' down on creation

And the only explanation I can find

Is the love that I've found ever since you've been around

Your love's put me at the top of the world

  18. Oh Shelia, I'm so jealous. I have the cookie jar and tea pot that I got saving S&H green stamps (boy I'm telling my age aren't I) the first year my husband and I got married about 44 years ago. They still sit in my kitchen...I have seen one or two pieces of the canisters by alone but never the whole set. I didn't even know there was a napkin holder....wonder if there might be salt and pepper shakers to match....your so lucky...what a bargain!

  30. Shelia, this set is totally gorgeous. Their true value I would say would be three times what you paid, at least. Find of the century, no wonder you are on cloud nine. Truly exquisite. :)

  41. Wow! What a sweet deal! I've been wanting an old German set that is in a shop we stop at when we're traveling to a vacation area. It's cream with black silhouettes of fairies dancing, but it's $100 and I keep hoping it will go on sale. We both know how this story will end. Somebody else is going to buy it. :@

    I need to shop at your stores!

    ReplyDelete
  42. $20.00....!!! ....SHUT THE FRONT DOOR !
    These are just awesome, Shelia. What a great price for a great find.
    I have a collection of olden German canister sets that I sure enjoy. Will you use these in your kitchen?...or will they go in a hutch? I keep mine in hutches. :)

  43. Hi Shelia,
    Oh...my goodness...my goodness! I have the same set of canisters (Flour, Sugar, Coffe & Tea). I posted them on my blog sometime ago. My post is called "Blueware".
    I have never seen these anywhere until now. I received mine as a wedding gift 42 years ago and have held onto them all these years. Congratulations!

  49. Sheila, What a wonderful find. They really don't look like a 1950's design, they look fabulous. I adore blue and white and have a French set which I found in a Charity Shop here in England, and I had the same feeling as you, pure excitement. Congratulations, I can tell you utterly love your cannisters. Best Wishes Daphne

  66. Shelia,
    Hi! Coming over from Rhoda's. I have the same canister set (circa mid sixties). While my mom was pregnant with me, she stood in line week after week at the local grocery store (New York) to redeem stamps her purchases earned. You could trade the stamps for pieces of this set! I have fond memories of searching for loose change in them! Mom would remind us, “I stood on line while pregnant to get those!” I have them now. Enjoy! It was a treat to see them at Rhoda’s today.

  67. I saw a picture of your canisters on Southern Hospitality. My grandmother had that cookie jar when I was a little girl. Seeing that brought back so many wonderful memories from years ago. Thanks!

I'm so pleased you would come to see me and so please leave me a comment and I'll do my very best to respond back to you. Be a sweetie...Shelia :)
