Sabi Saturday & FOWC – Sachet/Sashay

Standard

Sabi Saturday & FOWC – Sachet/Sashay

***

Sabi Saturday, Week 14

***

FOWC with Fandango — Sashay

***

Combining two challenges here today – Sabi Saturday, and Fandango’s One Word Challenge…

***

The one word is ‘sashay’ and I have something that sounds the same, but is a different thing all together. That is a really old ‘sachet’ package.

That brings us to the description of Sabi Saturday:

Sabi Saturday is open for a whole week where we share:

  • the vintage/antique items handed down or we “rescue” from garage sales and thrift stores so they don’t end up in a trash bin
  • items we’ve upcycled instead of throwing them away
  • items we’ve repaired in a transformative way to make them more beautiful or cooler than before
  • process or tutorials on how we upcycled or repaired something to make something new, more beautiful, or cooler
  • the main idea is showing how we treasure or reuse or creatively transform things that have some history to them, may be a bit worn but nevertheless are still useful/beautiful and often have character.

As I’ve been going through some old boxes of my parent’s and grand-parents things that they kept over the years, I found this cute little sachet packet.

***

***

The note that was written and was inside the little pink container says:

To Nina (my aunt)

From Mrs. Frances

McCamey Texas

1930

***

The little pink container must have had some sweet smelling sachet in there. Sachets were used (and may still be used today) to place in a person’s chest-of-drawers to make everything smell nice. I used to use similar ones, myself.

The original box for this says it is a Dorothy Perkins product, and has the word Memories, and Sachet on the top, along with some pink roses.

On the front of the sachet container is a square, with blue flowers, and a small clock.

I think it is really cool that my aunt saved this little item, and my granny still had it, too.

I know the word sashay and sachet are different, but I can imagine my aunt would sashay out and about, with sweet smelling sachet scented clothes. 🙂

For Sabi Saturday I have these to show you.

A vintage 1940s electric egg poacher, and a drip coffee pot.

They are both aluminum (I think) and silver in color. They are old, and have stains and discoloring, though.

The egg poacher has a clear cylinder measuring cup thing on the top of the lid. You then put in however much water into the bottom part of the poacher according to how long a time you want your eggs cooked. When it’s done cooking the water will have evaporated letting the steam cook the eggs in the 3 egg cups.  It is made by Sunbeam and is marked E2.

My mom got this from a yard sale many years ago, and when she was done with it, she let me have it.

The coffee pot, which is a drip kind,came from a yard sale, also. I found several of them in a box, just as the people were closing up their sale. Of course I got them all. You boil water in the bottom part, and the small basket attaches to the top part and holds the coffee grounds. You then pour the boiling water into the top part, set it onto the top, and the water drips through. It is made by Wear-Ever and is marked No. 956.

My family used a coffee pot just the same for as long as I can remember.

Yes, we still do use both of these from time to time. They make excellent eggs, and coffee.

This is a vintage enamel ware pitcher, washbowl, and soap dish.

A friend of ours found it in an abandoned house many years ago, and gave it to me.

It is marked on the bottom with 215. D, but I don’t know what that means, even though I tried to find out.

I still use these quite often. It is pretty distressed, chipped, and rusted out a bit (the pitcher has a hole in it). I’ve used the pitcher to scoop up birdseed, and the wash basin I’ve used as a planter, and also a fairy garden at one time.

I love using old things like this, and am always on the look out for small antique/vintage pieces at yard sales.
