A Shabby Chic Party Keg


Not really...Just a pretty white enamel beverage cooler. This was another thrifted find, just $5, still holding on to it's original price tag from Gottchalks. Regular price...$35
 I call that a $30 savings, don't you? Even if we count sale prices, I'm sure I saved a good $20 ;)
Of course we had to try it out...there were all these Tangerines, and Vodka, we were obligated no?
Yep, no leaks. Keeps the "Bevies" nice and cold. Can't wait for Summer. You'll find this little beauty poolside;)

I want to extend a warm welcome to all of you who've recently joined my blog. Your membership is greatly appreciated. Be sure to check out my "giveaway" page. Also, I hope to open my shop soon. It's taking a bit longer than I hoped, but I assure you there will be lots of vintage thrifted items, not at all over priced. Thank you also to all of you who regularly support my blog with your comments, emails, and encouragement. Sending you all warm hugs from Sunny California, xoxo tami

  1. OMG, I saw your post title in My Blog Roll and could not click over here fast enough, thinking we were all gonna par-tayyyyy! LOL!

    Wow, what a major score! I've had my eye on those little beverage servers for a while now, they are just lovely and so functional. And I agree, you were ABSOLUTELY obligated to test the thing out, what with having all those tangerines and the vodka around the house. Obligated, I tell you! Those drinks look divine. What do you call them?

  20. What is it with you and thrift-shop bargains? I think you must be a bit like a magnet for anything cool and gorgeous and vintage-y. I bet you only have to step into a thrift shop and all the good stuff comes flying towards your vintage-cool magnetism!!

    This is LOVELY. And so great that it's white too - to match the other things that you've shown on here recently.

    Biiiiig hug to you,

    Sarahx
