“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 …
Always be yourself, unless you can be a unicorn. Then, always be a unicorn. – Jaime Murray
It only took 35 pieces – of this and that – to create one of my favorite mosaic tile light switch covers. I used a hard plastic double light switch cover, an antique rhinestone brooch, purple iridescent tile, purple beads, black and white Millefori, a clear glass gem, silver tile and silver ball chain.
Glued the brooch and purple iridescent tile border first, then glued the rest and let it dry before gluing the ball chain around the edges.
After the glue dried, I used a charcoal grout to make it pop! Chaz loves it! Me too but …
I’ve come to terms with the fact that this piece and many others – from my private stash – have to be sold since all of my light switches, walls and floors are already covered. Less is more unless you need a groovy new light switch cover.
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.
