My daughter found the rattan insert short tumblers and I picked up the glass shaker at a thrift cause I thought it was vintage.
Itís not- has silicone type gaskets om both the body and cover.
Cheers

The little tumblers are called raffiaware. Look it up. They come in all shapes and colors. Even an ice bucket.

My bruddah TikiVato put together the fish float lamp for my wife and the Pusserís Rum bottle lamp for me. Nice giftís. The Chinese lantern is made of cloth. I picked it up at a thrift for 99 cents and added one of dem lighted cubeís from Trader Samís. Gotta find a place to hang em in my Happy Talk Lounge. I hung em in the SharkBite Bar just for the pix.

Found a fun lamp that has a texture on the bottom and reminds me of a volcano.

Picked this up a my local Savers-almost free. I thought that it was a flamingo with the legs missing.
My wife said that she could see the outline of a leg at the front of the bird as well as one at the rear. turns out this is a horse. Iím anxious to get started on fully restoring this nice example of MCM wall art.

A horse.

Usually I am pretty good with interpreting cloud shapes but I am not seeing a horse. Flamingo, yes.

Perhaps a water horse?

Veronica, Welcome to you. I searched the web and found a couple of similar horses and flamingos. I jigsawed some horse legs in the same style and tried em out. Looks like a horse with a bird head. weíll see how it turns out. Mahalo for your comments-made me smile.

Treg, Datís wat my wife thought it was at first. I cut the legs out, stained em and tried dem out. Does not look like a horse, a flamingo or Nessie. Looks like hell.
