Hazel Atlas Glass Ornament

I made this lovely ornament from a shard of a Hazel Atlas punch bowl.  I continue to receive shards from collectors who can't bring themselves to tossing them in the garbage. I drafted this post last year and never published it.

Color in my Kitchen - 1958 Ranch

The older my kitchen gets, the more I love it.

Hubby harvested from the garden.

That thrifted Krenit bowl came in handy!

Vintage Ornament Wreath - Pink and Aqua

I went ahead and worked on what is probably one of the last large wreaths I'll make.  This one is in pink and aqua with vintage reindeer, putz and angel. I'm going to focus on making wreaths smaller than 12 inches as it is easier to ship.

Vintage Ornament Wreath - Pink

I made time to make my pink wreath for my newly decorated sitting room.  I've been collecting bits an pieces for it from the thrifts for a few years now.  Measures 16".

Dream Find!

It's really heating up in our parts.  Was out early to make it home by noon.  I'll not complain about summer though!! Little bit of stuff going on like how  I was happy as punch to pick up this vintage bullet planter locally. A very reasonable price at that!

I captured a moment in the kitchen.  Freshly picked cherry tomatoes in a vintage pottery bowl.

After finding pink Hazel Atlas crinoline dishes at the thrift, I traded for bowls, cups, saucers and a salad plate.

I was dusting my china cabinet and admiring my pretty little things.

I've been doing some exchange work for glass as well as filling custom requests.  Of course I always enjoy a challenge and keeping my hands busy is just what I do.

Sometime these little Pyrex pendants remind me of candy :0)

Thrifty Find, Nifty Trade, Cantaloupe and Crafts!

I decided to post some pictures before I forget them  I'm so busy as usual but didn't want these to get buried. Another one of my many pictures/few words posts. haha!

My delightful thrift store score--Hazel Atlas pink Crinoline dishes.  And an adorable Rueben's nursery planter.

I traded some Pyrex away for these two gorgeous VEFA bowls.  They stack beautifully with my Hanova bowls.

Hot day and chilled cantaloupe in a Syracuse China cup.

Some of my most recent Pyrex ornaments I made from broken glass people sent to me .
