Thrift Share - Sippin' on the Dock of the Bay

I'm dreaming of a lakeside cabin, "Sitting on the Dock of the Bay", and drinking the day away.  
Fishing poles by my side with these Glass Floats & Bobbers adding a just a touch of Vintage charm.
Though I don't know much about about Glass Floats, there are several websites dedicated to collecting them.  I believe these are hand blown and they are stamped NW with Pat Pend and a serial number on the bottom thats very hard to make out.  They were all in a box at a garage sale the other day for a whopping $3.  I couldn't resist the color and beauty of of the glass, and the vintage cork & wood floats were in the box too!
At the same yard sale, I picked up this pretty Walnut Tray by Vermillion.
It was never used, and still wrapped in the original plastic.  The handles swivel for easy storage & carrying & it has pretty little feet on the bottom.  Just perfect for carrying my drinks to the dock to waste the day away!
Though I'm sure my weekend will not include a lakeside cabin or fishing, I sure can hope for the day.

I'll be linking up to Selena's & Sophie's again this week, so be sure to check out all of the other fun finds there too!

Cheers ~ Lara
