Westmoreland Milk Glass Flag Eagle Fleur De Lis Plate

By | January 22, 2012

I picked this up the week we got home we got back from Indiana.  I love it because it is milk glass and because the patriotic theme reminds me of Travis’s service in the Marine Corps.

By | January 22, 2012

Today Travis and I went to the Del Mar Antique Show.  I was really excited about it.  I was sure we were going to find a ton of Flow Blue and lots of hobnail and Fenton.  Waaaaaaa, I was so wrong.  There were a couple of pieces of overpriced Flow Blue.  Prices aside, none of […]

My idea for this blog

By | January 22, 2012

I will try and keep this short and sweet. I have the best grandmother-in-law, Grandma Bev that a girl could ask her. She lives in Indiana and I live in California. This Christmas my husband and I surprised her by showing up and knocking on her door. We spent a whole week hanging out with […]
