Not only everything outside looks bright and shiny in Spring but the smell is heavenly too. I couldn't help myself and I picked some lilac over the weekend.The house smells amazing!
I placed the branches in a Cut Flowers vase made by US Glass. This vase belonged to Dan's grandma, so it's quite old but I couldn't find more precise manufacturing dates.
The color is known as marigold and it reminds me of FireKing's peach lustre.
Here's a closer look at the vase
The flowers are wheeled cut while the rest of the details are formed by the mold.
It was thought to be a Jenkins at first but it has appeared in US Glass catalogs.
Now a couple of weeks ago while visiting my Dad, I spied the same vase but clear. He offered it to me and being the glassware lover that I am I could not turn it down....Dad told me he saw it in the Fry guidebook and that he would send me the page. I'll post about it upon reception.
So following the anticlutter rule: When you bring something in, something must come out. I gave one of my cheap modern vase to the church basement. The wheels of junk are turning....What's trash for me is a teasure for someone else....
By the way...I'll be leaving bright and early on saturday morning and heading to Maine for the weekend! OH JOY! OH BLISS! Mr Gallop (inventor of the GI diet) will be taking time off as well! Lobster,fried clams, Bill's pizza,fudge,caramel corn will all find their way in my greedy little hands...And I'll be working off the calories scouring all the fleas I encounter! My mission? Sucking out what's left of Pyrex on the eastern seaboard!!!
