Thirst

It's Spring here in Sydney and with temperatures topping 30 degrees already I am envisioning many an evening out on the deck sipping ice-cold fruity drinks. There should be ample opportunity so to utilise some recent drink-related finds :-)

Fruity cocktails shall be decanted from and served up in this lovely glassware (as far as I'm concerned there just aren't enough opportunities in life to use the verb 'decant' so I urge you to slip it into conversation whenever possible). This set was $5 in Vinnie's.

Ice-cubes will have the luxury of being created in these rather gorgeous vintage Frigidaire anodised Quickube ice-trays, from the 1950s - $1 for the pair in Salvos.

Glasses of sparkling white wine will be served up on this gorgeous little tray - $1 in Vinnie's.

Who could not fall in love with this set of coasters featuring illustrations of beautiful birdies? - $2 in Vinnie's.

Typing this post has made me thirsty, children are napping so I'm off out onto the deck for an ice-cold glass of lemonade (and a chocolate eclair, yum).

Wow, we had ice cube tray like that when I was a wee girl growing up!! Fab. I love decanters - they have such an old world feel to them - don't you feel like having 5 ' clock cocktails?

The decanter set is brilliant. Love it. And the ice trays work a treat. I have a couple of them.

Off-topic, but Lobster & Swan had posted a photo in Flickr or on her blog of decanters being used for bath items. I'm inspired by you both!
