Colors of Home...


I have had several requests to take pictures of my home. As the days go by and I unpack and decorate I will share my new home. Right now we are painting, redoing floors and countertops, replacing lights, hardware, etc. It is generally a mess with little order. Soon though, I hope to have something to show for it all. I have years of collections to unpack - which I come by honestly. Both my Grandmother and Mother are collectors. I only have another 800 or so boxes to go through. Today I thought I would share a picture of one of my Mother's collections. When I walk in the door and see this I get warm inside. It says you are home, all is well.

Oh this pink glass is so pretty. I have a thumbprint glass vase that is the same color and from I would guess the same era, as it belonged to my mother.

I too love cranberry glass, what a marvelous collection. One of my favorite pieces in my little collection is a beautiful pickle jar, unfortunately the caster is long gone. It's an unusual shape at the bottom and I've never found a caster it would fit into. A vast majority of these old metal pieces were donated during metal drives during WWll. Lucky you for having the whole thing.
