Hi, all. It's Vintage Thingies Thursday, sponsored by my friend Suzanne.
Today, I wanted to show off some white vases I have. Of course, everything at my house has a story, so here we go. This vase was a thank you gift to my parents from my Aunt and Uncle. My Aunt Ducky (Marie) and Uncle Bill had three children, but I'm not sure how many my parent's stayed with while Duck and Bill went on vacation to Dallas. To thank my parents, they brought them back this vase as a thank-you. It's decorated with hand painted flowers and gold swirls and there are, I guess rhinestones glued to it. Many years ago, in the height of my collecting vases, my Mom gave it to me. For a long time, I wouldn't display it because I thought I'd break it. The vase is shaded glass and it is very delicate and tall (about 10 inches tall).
These next three are old milk-glass vases that I collected through the years. I love milk-glass and always watched for glass that had the slightest tinge of red when you looked through it at a light because a dealer once told me it made the piece more valuable. Don't know if that's true or not. Only the tallest vase of these three has the red tinge.
Okay, that's it for me today. Be sure to check out Suzanne's remodel at her blog and from there, link to see what other great vintage items her other followers have posted. I'll post more of the vase collection later. There are...well, more than I like to dust.
Have a great Thursday. Lane
