A jadeite pumpkin has come to live at our house. It will fit in well with my other glass pumpkins, don't you think? I've been stressed out with Dayle's radiation, his eye surgeries and mine, so I have been keeping myself occupied with a bit of eBay and Etsy trolling. I tell my husband that I don't buy expensive shoes or clothes, don't drink or do drugs, don't have other vices. Right? :-) (okay, we won't mention yarn.. )
This Westmoreland Glass Co. piece grabbed me so.. I snatched it up. It was listed as a candy dish. Then a woman on Jadeite Junkies, a Facebook group, told me it was a sugar bowl and I should look for the creamer. Those are rare as hens teeth, but in my research I found a cobalt sugar and creamer and this is not a sugar.. and looking further.. it's a butter dish! I was concerned it would not make it in one piece but it did.
The design is called Ring & Petal.
I have decided I need to box up my vintage set of Johnson dishes and clear more space in my china cabinet for the Jadeite. :-)
And lest you think I have a "problem".. check out this person's collection. :-)
I laid out my whole set of mother-of-pearl handled knives and forks. They did not make spoons for some reason. I need to shine these up. Any suggestions on how to do it?
I have two different kinds of each, see the different designs on the ferrule?
Remember when I showed you this fairy light a while back? The FB Marketplace seller found another one and so we drove and picked it up on Saturday as I thought a pair of them would be nice. :-D
They are pretty in the day, too.
Dayle just brought in this cute pair of acorn "twins". Our huge Pin Oak has dropped thousands of these.
My very first grandchild, Jenna, has turned 16!! She is such a sweet and thoughtful girl and loves animals. I miss her so much!! She's an artist so my daughter Amy ordered a birthday cake with artsy decorations. :-)
Here is Paige who is 12 who is on the cheer team for her school. She is a little doll and Facetimes with me on occasion which I love. She's quite the fashionista and loves to play with makeup. :-)
Well.. time to do.. something.. :-) I'm still nursing my back but I'm sure I will be able to do our trip to the beach.. I am determined to do so. What's new with you? Do share!
((hugs)), Teresa :-)
