Boxes and Bubble Wrap

“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.

Beautiful Pair of Pears Tile Drink Coasters – Wall Art. Artist unknown. This Pair of Pears looks like they were created on gorgeous … looks like handmade tile and they give off a warm Italian energy to me. Maybe, maybe not.;)  Both tiles have cork feet to be a coaster and a place on back to hang as wall art. Very gently used and I’ve had them since the late eighties so that makes them vintage too. Each tile is approx 4″inch x 4″inch x almost 3/4″ thick and weigh almost (1) one pound each. You’ll love them. I have. 😉 No chips, no cracks and no repairs. Gently used condition.

Vintage Androck Orange Bowl and maybe a Vintage Hazel Atlas Orange Creamer
Favorite and Very Retro Orange could be Sugar Bowl and Vintage Orange Creamer  / Click image to see listing.

Just listed … Vintage Androck Orange Bowl that has been used for sugar and might be a Vintage Hazel Atlas Orange Creamer or… it could be a Lancaster English Ware Orange Creamer – not sure – that have sat together for years as a cherished but never used – fabulous orange – would be – sugar creamer set. This listing is for the set of both of these fabulous and very vibrant orange decor pieces. The measurements of the Androck orange bowl is approx 4 1/2″inches w x 3″inches h. The orange creamer measures approx 4 1/2″ inches wide x 3 3/4″ h. Both pieces are in good condition with minimal to no fading, no cracks, no chips and no repairs with a bit of shelf marking and some adhesive residue that I still need to clean off before shipping;) Love these this little mismatched sugar-creamer set and you will too! Gently used condition.

Rare Find of the Week …

Always be yourself, unless you can be a unicorn. Then, always be a unicorn. – Jaime Murray

Unicorn Vintage Brinns Ceramics
Rare Find of the Day – Vintage Brinn’s Ceramic Unicorn Figurine that may be from the 60’s or 70’s and after researching vintage Brinn’s, I couldn’t find another one so … I presume that it’s a rare unicorn that I found. 😉 Beautiful colors in iridescent shades of white, pink, blue, yellow and green with a shiny gold horn. No chips, no crack, no repairs, some shelf markings and a few little rough spots can be felt on the tip of the ears and the horn but it’s not damage just age. Magical. The unicorn figurine is approximately 4 1/2 inch base, 5 1/2″ from back of base to unicorns nose and 6 3/4 inches from base to the tip of the golden horn. Colors vary from monitors to real life. 😉 Gently used condition. Click on image to view listing.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

road blocks and round abouts

after learning how to ship odd-shaped items, to faraway places, by way of Etsy and not losing money, I thought it might be fun to build an online store and sell off my collections … skip ahead hundreds of hours, thinking all systems are go and the infamous one little thing shows up to block a spectacular finish.  it’s all good … I consider that bump in the road as good luck for what’s to come. eventually.

one way or another, it always works out and I only have 110 people ahead of me in line. 🙂

Wonders Never Cease

Hippies Use Side Door
Who says people don’t read or follow directions!

Closing the brick & mortar must have given me all the inspiration I needed to learn how to build my online shop. Bye, bye Etsy … it’s been real.

Besides, it took Sylvester Stallone 10 years to get Rocky on the big screen. I beat him by 2 years. Insert me patting myself on the back here. I did it!
