Collecting artifacts and the history of people, places or things are my favorite hobbies. Ancestry and collections of photos, memorabilia and stories go hand in hand. Enjoy!

The green and blue glassware is available at Exit 55 Antiques
in Fergus Falls, Mn
This lovely ruby bowl has a new owner.
Pretty glassware doesn't have a faithful following anymore. However, it is attractive and makes a dinner table sparkle as well as making a statement in a china cabinet or as an accent piece in a room. So---you don't have to be a collector of any particular pattern but you do have to enjoy pretty pieces. Once upon a time mother or grandmother probably had an extensive quantity because glass, such as depression glass, was inexpensive and even came in cereal boxes as promotions. Even though it isn't dishwasher or oven-safe, put away the mundane stuff and bring out the candles!
