Pyrex And Fire King

This picture is a close up of an Amaryllis plant I have in my office that's in bloom.

This is one of two teal Fire King mugs I found at a local secondhand store.  The both of them are in good condition.

I have a Fire King mug collection I'm slowly building up.  In solid colors I have the teal, white and pink mugs above.

These Pyrex divided serving dishes were found at secondhand stores.  The blue one is a Delphite Bluebelle
Cinderella oval divided serving dish.  I couldn't find any information on the white dish before posting this post.

Lamp, Pyrex And A Brooch

My boyfriend has a new hobby, he's been going to auctions.  This lamp was one of his buys, it looks old but is a new lamp made to look old and its a great addition to our office.

These three Pyrex casserole dishes were a find at a local secondhand store.  I almost missed them because they were on a trolley waiting to be put on the shelves.  The pattern is Town And Country.

This bowl pattern is also Town And Country.

This necklace is actually a Sarah Coventry brooch that I put onto a chain as I get more opportunities to wear it this way.

Sarah Coventry was started by Charles H. Stuart in Newark, New York in 1949. In 1984 the company stopped operating and a Canadian company bought the rights and Sarah Coventry name.

Fairies And Finds

The above pictures are by Cicely Mary Barker she was an illustrator best known for her work on fairies and flowers.  She was born June 28th 1895 in Croydon, Surrey, England and passed away February 16th 1973.

These pictures are out of a book called A Flower Fairy Alphabet illustrated by Cicely Mary Barker.  I picked the book up for a friend for Christmas but she already had this copy.  So I picked up a frame that has a mat that holds three pictures at a secondhand store.  My boyfriend sanded the frame for me I painted it white.  I put the pictures with the letters of her name behind the mat and framed it up.

This canister I can't see any markings on though my boyfriend says he can see the Fire King symbol.  I found a picture of a set of canisters that look like mine.  The canisters are Fire King Groovy Flower by Anchor Hocking .  So my boyfriend may be right.

This white frosted chip and dip bowl set is a nice addition to my collection.  It was an end of the day secondhand store shopping find.

From The Family Collection

I picked this picture because I like mountains and snow pictures and the hikers make it an interesting photo.
