In Response to Re: GALE-PINK GLASS : Vicki - it was the '94 Northridge EQ. You may remember hearing about the 3 story apartment building that fell down, so the 3rd floor became the 1st and only floor. Very sad, with many lives lost. Which valley are you in? We're in Santa Clarita Valley, just at the bottom of the Grapevine, off the 5 frwy.
Posted by Verlee T


 Verlee, my brain is on brain-freeze! I really don't remember! Humm... I live in the Sacramento Valley but closer to some foothills in Butte County. Mount Lassen and Mount Shasta aren't too far away. It stays close to 100 degrees in the summer her. Do you? You're close to some water aren't you? the furthest I've been down the valley is Fairfield. Oh, was that when the freeways collapsed and it was huge news? My daughter just reminded me of that. Now THAT was a horrible earthquake!

I love all of the depression glassware.  Both of my Grandmother's still have theirs.  My step-mother collects white milk glass but if you dont' get from reputable place/person, it's not valuable

 Jeannine, did she have just white milk glass or does it have bumps all over I think called hobbnail?

The only two pieces of glass that I have collected are Green Glass with raised flowers decorating them and raised gold paint. I did a bit of looking and I think they are Czechoslovakian.  One is a decanter and one a vase.  I have no idea as to their value.  I got both when I was a kid, we were in Florida visiting my Aunt and she loved going to Auction houses.  I liked these two pieces and I think I paid about $4.00 for each of them.  I got them at different times so I was surprised that they go so well together.  The other piece that I have and I got it in an odd way, I have a Tiffany Crystal decanter from the 1970's.  It is still full.  I was clearing out a storage unit for someone and when I called them about this they said they did not want it so I kept it. There were a few other commemorative decanters as well, they are full also.  So I have several full decanters sitting in a china cabinet.

 OK Nikki! Love the humor and my daughter always wants to know what I'm laughing at. Full decanters in a china cabinet! Laughing

In Response to Re: GALE-PINK GLASS : I know what you mean.I feel very displaced I'm 55 years old and feel so much more comfortable in "MAYBERRY" than in our modern times.I love to live a basic simple life.I too love animals,nature,art and of course porcelain,pottery and vintage glassware.My absolute favorite is carnival glass antique and vintage.Somehow having this and being able to see it daily brings a joy to me.I remember collecting it ,where I got it and it was done at a very happy time in my life collecting with my mom and dad.I have thinned the herd,but still have some very nice pieces.I still do collect here and there but I'm unable to go out by myself so that has become limited.

 Gale, Mayberry is a very good way to describe how I feel. If we lived close we could go and do some damage to our bank accounts! Your knowledge and my grabbing! I have carnival glass. A bowl that I got after my grandma died. I use it as a fruit bowl.

 I have something that I can't find anywhere and would like to know about it. I got it at the same time as I got the carnival glass. I''ve asked the antique stores around here but they don't want to really answer as they don't get paid for the information. It's a very small glass with a pour spout about 3 to 3/12 inches tall maybe. It's got a very small egg beater that goes on top and has an attached lid so the whole top is covered. It's got a wooden painted handle and really works. I have used it to beat up two eggs for breakfast before but stopped as I don't know what this is and don't want to ruin it. The egg beater part except the handle is all metal. I wonder was it a childs' toy or maybe was meant to beat up egg?

Oh Vicki when I still could get around I went all over looking.I would have a few dollars worth of change in my pocket and always came home with something.Not seeing what you are talking about,I think you are correct in your thinking this is an egg beater.I found a picture.Antique dealers can be very ruthless.Have you every watched Storage Wars ? They are really like some of these people out there.I have been pushed,shoved and things grabbed right out of my hands.They are very pushy,but remember this is how they make their money.Whenever I had a sale at my house I always priced my items high enough to discourage the dealers but low enough for the collectors to be interested..Vicki this could also be a childs toy they made many things just like the real deal.But that could be good news a lot of the childrens toys are more valuable than the real ones, why because a lot of them were broken and production was lower than the real one.The top is the childs and the bottom a full siize egg beater.I hope this helps..

 Hey Gale you found it! Laughing The top is like mine. Thank you!

 

 Love the words on the sign! My daughter embroidered a sign that says "it's not junk it's a collection."

 I used to have the complete set Fiesta dinnerware. Platter and everything. Sold that to an antique store. I loved those dishes. I still have 25 glass insulators that I gathered while hiking around where I lived in the mountains. They're not worth much but I just like them and I keep them in my window sills. There's purple, blue and clear. Hiking around there I also found the occasional bottle, tin cans and the like while digging in someone's trash from somewhere in the early 1900's  or maybe later just a bit. In the old days people threw their trash down the outhouse and sometimes under their house. Imagine the smell if just put under the house! I also would find real Indian arrowheads quite a bit. If the Indians caught you on their land they would be quite... well lets just say that you wouldn't be a happy camper. Things could be done to you that nobody would ever know as their land rights were huge. They are called Pit River Indians.

 I also used to have the complete set including the tea pot of Blue Willow dinnerware. I broke the whole box when moving one time. Cry

 I can't believe how people are so mean as to push and shove you! What did you do back? Someone push me like that and I'd make sure they were sorry!

 Yes I' ve watched Storage Wars off and on. Also Property Wars. They're funny to watch! There's a new one out called Flip Men. These guys go around and they get look at the houses that are up for auction. There's usually quite a few. They can bid on the houses but they aren't allowed to look inside before they buy. I don't really watch my TV so I watch shows on the computer. I found it just by looking around.

Vicki - yes, that's the quake! We live in a lovely valley between the 5 and 14 freeways (do you know where Magic Mountain is?), and both freeways collapsed in several places around us. The good part was there was no traffic and no trucks to contend with for nearly a year. The bad part was my hubby spent 4-5 hours ONE WAY, commuting to his job. We are at around 1800 ft. in elevation, and have 100 deg. summers, but it's dry, so it only feels like 80 or so. We get into the 30's in the winter, and have had snow occasionally. The snow doesn't stay, but it's fun for a little while!

We love the Sacramento Valley! Our oldest son went to UC Davis, and we love that campus.

 Verlee, our summers hot and muggy! Using a swamp cooler just doesn't help in those kind of days! You know what a swamp cooler is? I figured that you do but i've ran into people that don't know. I'm further up from Davis about 2/12 hours in a smaller town. Sacramento is just way too much for me to handle! As Gale so aptly says I do better in a place like "Mayberry." You should visit my neck of the woods! Smile

Collecting really isn't about the money but what makes you happy.All my years of collecting never found any fiesta ware.I love it too.Mom had the blue willow but we used that daily and with two little kids you know the rest of the story with that.The insulators are neat they look pretty in a window and add a nice country feel to your home.A lot of people are pushy.I got "Hardened" collecting and learn to talk back and not take any stuff from anyone.When I was much younger I was shy.Working as a nursing assistant and collecting really taught me alot and I'm no longer that shy girl.I'm jealous of you finding arrowheads,I've never found one even when looking for one.You are right about Indian Land but can you really blame them after what we did to them?

 Gale I don't blame the Indians one bit. I was "into" learning about the different tribes and customs a few years ago. I'm on their side even if the mean ones are scary looking! Honestly though the ones I have met were really nice. I used to go to many of the Pow Wow's they had going on around here. I liked watching them do their bead work. Do you have Pow Wo's around there? If they do you should try to go. It's worth it even if just once. Too bad we don't live closer...!!!

When I was little I wanted to be an Indian,don't know why just did.lol Everywhere we went on a trip my mom and dad had to get me an Indian doll.I have gone to one Pow Wow and I was mesmerised by it.My sweet hubby was part Indian but just a tiny bit on his mom's side.I have a decent collection of American Indian jewelry that I just love I add a piece now and then if I find something I like.I also make dream catchers.I used to sell them .I haven't made one lately due to my hands sometimes they don't do what I want them to do.lol I made a four sided one for one of my hubby's friends whot was a hunter.I used feathers from the turkey he had shot.He loved it.He was showing it off to all his friends.I wished you lived closer too we would have a lot of fun.It's true some Native Ameicans do appear mean,I think it's attitude.I just gave my fridge to a Native American he is Chippewa.No he's not scary,he's very sweet and a member of our church.

 Gale I've been single so long as I gave up on love and romance in 1993 and haven't been out since. It took me a few bad eggs and now I just turn tail and run the opposite direction. But I still look! I don't figure I'll ever get over all the bad eggs. Frown It's too bad. I am a "Mayberry" girl and used to like going out -the romance, the fun of learning someone. Oh well... I'm glad that you have those memories and you were so lucky to have found each other.

My brother was married and it didn't work out for him.She found someone else and left him so sad he loved her so much.That's how he feels too he says it scares him to even think about it so he lives the single life and he seems very happy now.

 I'm glad that he's happy. It's good that he found that place of peace with himself. It took me a long time to be happy by myself until I realized that if you aren't happy then you can't make anyone else happy.
