“What is happening to me happens to all fruits that grow ripe. It is the honey in my veins that makes my blood thicker, and my soul quieter.” ― Friedrich Nietzsche … especially if I’m lucky enough to have the right size box and bubble wrap. 😉
The shop is in full swing and I’m on pace to sell and/or donate at least 1/2 of one storage locker. Woo hoooo! Thank you to all who have stopped and shopped!
Recently listed this gorgeous pair of tile pears. My original idea was to glue them on to something but that was decades ago. They may be handmade Italian pottery – maybe not – and they can be used as drink coasters or wall art. Click 2 Browse the Shop Here or scroll down for more exciting new listings.
Rare Find of the Week …

It’s the little things … I can’t care if the end of this purge takes a lot longer than I’d like it to … what really matters is that I’ve gotten to admire an empty trailer bed 3 times! Woo Hoo! Gold Star!
There are certain objects spared from the shard pile … this oversized vintage sugar bowl is one of those things. Never had the heart to break it and it’s so big – for a sugar bowl – plus it reminds me of Mackenzie-Childs meets Alice in Wonderland. Pretty sure this is a Victoria Austria sugar bowl in brilliant White and Gold Porcelain Oversized Sugar Bowl with Lid, regal Gold Trim and Scalloped Edges. Unable to find out more information about the makers mark on the bottom of the sugar bowl but I did find a sold out listing – for what looks like the same sugar bowl – on replacements.com. A bit more research lead me to believe that this piece may be Victoria Porcelain Schmidt & Co Bohemia sometime in the early to mid 1900’s. Beautiful condition with no chips or cracks, some shelf marks on footer with minimal fading gold.
After deciding to sell everything that won’t fit in 973 square feet, I had to choose one – and only one – sugar bowl for our little home, this vintage cutie didn’t make the cut … literally;) and it’s On Sale Now in the Shop.
Vintage Sugar Bowl measures approx 6 1/2″ across – from gold handle to gold handle x 5″ high to top of lid x 3 1/4″ deep.
Trying to organize the studio and decided that if I just glue everything to something else, it will take up less room.
This is what happened in April.

Trunk up for Good Luck!
Somehow these 3 vintage plates ended up together, along with a crystal candlestick and 2 glass bud vases. Think the snack pics added a nice touch. Sort of a Mackenzie Childs vibe … may have to keep this one.
Finally finished a glass on glass window, that I glued a ceramic tile to 6 years ago, and she ended up as the “Goddess of the Boobies”
and …. these 4 little pieces just screamed to be stuck together. For eternity. Unless you drop it.
