I love those small starting points that draw you into a piece of history you never knew before! Such if the case of my research on a jewelry mark - fhb

Regarding my passion: Fenton Slippers or Shoes, art glass.
Twice this week, I have come across sellers who are listing generic glass shoes or slippers and labeling them Fenton. RARE FINDs. if you can imagine...my blood is boiling.
NOTE: There are generally two patterns currently where I have detected fakes where sellers are labeling these shoes as Fenton: one looks smaller with a bow on the front (see my picture of a current listing where I am selling a generic shoe) and…Continue

My mother had lived in Duncan, Oklahoma for many many years. With tornado country, you never know when a tornado can touch down, particularly if you live in the Tornado Alley. Somewhat oblivious to the sirens, local folks figure the odds of a touchdown and then the odds of an F4 or F5 are low. Unsure as to why this thought process pervades the common man, but it does. For many years, it was always a hit and miss around Duncan. I was so happy when mom chose to sell out and move back to…Continue

Well, if there are just two messages I blog today I might save someone a whole lotta grief:
First message: BE CAREFUL when working on your documents at night when you are tired (or any time)
Second message: double check your recycle bin before deleting.....mass amounts (or anything)
You don't want to figure out your entire inventory list has been deleted.
Just sayin. Now, I can't blog anymore because I have some work to do. You can only imagine what that…Continue

Can you believe it is Mother's Day weekend? How does that happen so fast? With Christmas just sitting somewhere in my brain..the memories still lingering, and now it's Mother's Day weekend?
A June wedding for my daughter could have something to do with it. Adding a son to my list of children is just a celebration all by itself...as I plan and strategize gifts, dresses and hair styles...

Here's a little story from my website: Cottage Violets(as listed under Gabby's Bunny Tails)
I feel like we need to bring the romance back to collecting. These items are our heritage and a love story in themselves. So, let's go back in time and sit on the porch for awhile at the Peddler's Tea in a place called Harrington Woods. Happy Collecting - You are preserving our…Continue

Did anyone out there know that Emmons Jewelry was created in 1949 by Charles Stuart? The same guy who created Sarah Coventry? Charles Stuart created Sarah Coventry after his daughter, and later created Emmons Jewelry Co. in honor of his wife, Caroline Emmons Stuart.
Apparently, Emmons Jewelry was also sold in the home party sales division, as was Sarah Coventry. The pieces were priced slightly higher than S. Coventry. The marks started in 1955 and the doors finally closed in 1981.…Continue

This is fascinating to me, and the pieces are just beautiful! You can read the story here.
Nothing irritates me more than trying to carry all of my items up and down stairs to shoot in my "studio". Using a newer camera, my photos are not focusing well, meaning I have to take a million pictures of one closeup. I literally hate it. Add to this insult, my OLD camera focused perfectly each and every time. My NEW and modern camera??? forget about it......
I found an article this morning in my inbox, Creative Income, and it came from a Crafter's website I subscribe to, I…Continue

I use this to clean many of the vintage items that I buy before listing them for sale. It really works wonders on everything! Before you read to the end, does anybody know what the main ingredient of WD-40 is? Well a neighbor bought a new pickup. One morning he found that someone had spray painted red all around …
The thought of having my own trunk show was terrifying . . . until I found the right inspiration!

Having a husband who loved to play with words. He would often write something worth sharing especially on this day. I went into the archives of his writing and thought I would share this with you.
Enjoy! Beware, you might get caught learning something.

Eau Pleine Vintage responded to my HELP request on Researchers to the Rescue this morning...although, I was complaining initially that the Easter Bunny failed to deliver chocolate....I was trying to identify an artist's rendition of some kind of red birds on small plates I found, in MINT condition. She researched my request and gave me this link, so I am forwarding it on…Continue
