Tempted by Antique Tiffin Candlesticks

Last night was actually a little chilly, so I had the urge to light a fire! I realized that might actually make my house too hot though. Instead, I compromised and lit a bunch of candles. They gave off the perfect amount of heat.

Tiffin candlesticks are one of my favorite vintage brands. This company was in business for almost 100 years, but sadly closed in the mid 1980's. Their candle holders come in all kinds of funky and wonderful shapes. Not only that, but the fun and bright colors really bring these to life. Come check out the antique Tiffin candlesticks on eBay and Etsy!

I thoroughly enjoy the rusty color of these amber glass Tiffin candlesticks. The warm hues emitted are going to be great for fall.

This would be so interesting to use for summertime. The antique argonaut green candlesticks are so bright! The fish shape might be fun to use at a lake house or poolside.

I fell in love with these gorgeous vintage satin blue glass candle sticks. They almost match my kitchen, but I'm sure I could get away with putting these in another room.

This Tiffin King's crown cranberry candlestick is incredibly elegant. This would be a wonderful addition for above the fireplace or as a centerpiece for your dining table.

These actually glow in the dark! It would be so much fun to have this vintage Tiffin glass console set during a Halloween party. That would create an ominous atmosphere.

Speaking of Halloween, these black antique Tiffin candlesticks are another awesome option. Lighting red or black candles will get everyone in the Halloween spirit!

They claim that this is pink, but this retro Tiffin dolphin candlestick looks flesh color to me. I definitely I prefer this over the bright green ones above.

Now your candles can be displayed in a vintage Tiffin candlestick holder all year round. Even though it's clear, it still has a groovy shape!

These Tiffin twilight candlesticks would be fun for Easter! I like how they sit lower than the rest, because that will add more dimension to your candle display!

As you can see, Tiffin candlesticks come in all kinds of shapes, sizes, and colors! I'm most amazed by the color selection. Glow in the dark candlesticks that are made out of glass are hard to find! I wish this brand was still around, but you can easily find Tiffin candlesticks on eBay or Etsy! Which one is your favorite? Tell me below!

Charming and Whimsical Figgjo Flint Dishes from Norway

I am really in love with colorful retro items as you all can probably tell! I didn't even know about this particular brand until a few days ago. I'm sad that it took this long to be aware of their existence! A lot of the Figgjo Flint retro dishes are great for summer. There are all kinds of designs ranging from vibrant, floral, to whimsical illustrations of Norwegian life! These are really charming and fun - let's take a look!

I like the little characters sitting back to back on this Turi sugar bowl. It claims it can be used as a mug, but since it doesn't have a handle I wouldn't risk it.

Look at how funky this Figgjo Flint leaf design plate is! All the colors are awesome. The sketchy shapes that make up the illustration are super cool.

I think you would be surprised at how much these two Figgjo Flint skillet pans might come in handy. They are apparently great to use on the stove and in the oven. Plus, the floral design is really groovy.

These retro Figgjo Flint salt and pepper shakers are a fun way to decorate your table, especially if you've been to Oslo. You can see the Oslo City Hall in the background of these shakers - including the waterfront.

I don't think I would ever use these antique egg cups, but I love the design. The colors are great for summertime and are definitely old school.

Can't you see drinking frosty cold milk from these Figgjo Flint Turi design Daisy milk cups? These are really rare and pretty!

In all honesty, I would normally avoid dishes that are olive in color. I surprisingly like this vintage ceramic pitcher. It's really earthy and great for fall and spring. I love the little scene being shown!

The deep dark reds and browns are really cool on this Morocco Figgjo lidded bowl. Is it just me or does the lid have a hypnotic effect?

If you're always in your kitchen, then this Flint Figgjo Turi Designs large ceramic shaker would be an awesome tool! Plus she's really bright and cute!

All of these playful dishes are fun for everyone! I'm so glad I ran into Figgjo flint retro dishes on Etsy. What are your thoughts on these dishes? Would you ever use them? Comment down below!

10 Gorgeous Colorful Duralex Glasswares from France

You're probably wondering where I store all these things I find! I tend to find all sorts of ways to use all this beautiful dishware, even if it doesn't involve food. I saw these stunning Duralex glasswares from France on Etsy and knew I needed more room. Here are my top ten - look at how colorful they are!

I actually do not have fondue plates in my house. I would love to have a fondue party sometime and use these. Plus, the vibrant orange tone would be a great contrast for my teal home decor!

These 6 green Duralex cups with saucers look very modern. There's something about drinking from glass mugs that seems so fancy too! The true green is a great color for the glass, in my opinion.

Wow! These vintage cobalt blue dessert bowls are absolutely gorgeous. This would be awesome to serve ice cream in for the summer!

I don't know if it's just the way the light hits the glass, but I love how it glows. These retro Duralex style blue glasses would look so fancy by poolside, especially if they glow like they do in the picture.

This is a huge set of dishware that I'm tempted to get. I really love the square shape of this French amber glass serving bowl set.

I would want to have this amethyst Duralex dinnerware set for the fall. There is something comforting about purple decor mixed with the seasonal colors like orange, green, and yellow.

Of course the color of these mid-century Vereco blue bowls appeal to me! It says they are square, but they almost look wavy to me. They're very artsy!

I think that I need more elegant dishes like this mid-century French dishware. The simple sunflower shape make it easy to use for any occasion - even during the holidays.

I don't have any swirls on my cups! These cobalt blue Vereco Duralex glass cups are pretty fun. They almost have an art deco style since they are so geometrical!

This amber vintage dish is supposed to be a tray, but it's so funky! I think it would be better off as home decor, but you could use it for serving if you want to awe your guests.

Aren't these so colorful and glamorous? People sometimes don't understand that vintage items can look modern as well! What do you guys think of these Duralex glasswares from France on Etsy? Comment down below and tell me your thoughts!
