last post of '09

i hope you all had a lovely christmas. mine was filled with lots of family, food & board games (who knew yatzee could be so much fun?). it was a really busy time, but i loved every minute of it.

now it's back to business. i will have quite a bit of new items i will be listing in my shop shortly. here's a sneak peak. there are some shakers, canisters, mixing bowls, a vintage radio & more!

have a happy new year!

fire king swirl

one of my favorite fire king designs is the swirl. it is a simple, yet fun pattern. the design was made by Fire King from 1949 - 1951 in a variety of colors: azurite, ivory, pink, luster (orange), pastel edge and jadite (very rare!). the pink and azurite are my favorites.

recently i acquired an azurite creamer & sugar bowl set. they are so cute and delicate. check them out here.

vintage radio

i've been looking for a fun vintage radio for my office, so i went on ebay and found this radio. it's a beautiful bakelite radio in a jadite green color. it is such a neat design... and then i looked at the price. it still has 4 days left in the auction and it's already over $6,500.00!

real christmas, real giving

for as much as i love christmas, and don't think gifts are a bad thing, this video was very moving. it's easy to lose sight of what the holiday is all about. i hope this impacts you as much as it did me.
