Six Sugar Bowls

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. vintage sugar bowlPretty 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.

Daily Distractions and Time Outs

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”

Realized that once I plugged in … I can’t plug out.

Well, I could plug out … except for this …

Call Your Mother

Daring myself to step away and see what I’m missing.

We’ll see how it goes.

The simplest questions are the most profound. Where were you born? Where is your home? Where are you going? What are you doing? Think about these once in a while and watch your answers change. – Richard Bach
