Thoughts Per Hour

Humans have 50,000 – 80,000 thoughts a day … that’s a minimum of 2000 thoughts per hour.

It’s exhausting to think about and with so much thinking going on, it’s surprising that we can get anything done.

At the time, this is what I was thinking about. ;)-

Every Miniature Tells a Story

Studio space is still on the “to do” list so … I’ve resorted to gluing some of my cherished vintage miniatures to functional objects like jars …

Pooh Jars

… and more than a few of my vintage china saucers …

… and when I ran out of jars and china I found my eye hooks and ball-chain. spuds-mackenzie

In the coming days … watch for shop listings of the miniatures I can part with.

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.
