Jeff and I have traveled up and down the east coast visiting antique stores, thrift shops and yard sales for years. Jeff is a musician and has a deep affection for old musical instruments, vintage toys, electronics and books. While I adore very pretty frilly vintage fabrics, tapestries, plates and glassware.
Throughout the years we have gathered countless objects of our desire – enough to furnish our own antique store. What’s more, we have learned that it’s really not necessary to acquire everything that sparks our curiosity, unless it a rare gem like the only 25 in print – Star Wars poster… well then, it’s without hesitation a keeper.
Over time I have cultivated a slight obsession for delicate beautiful glassware, especially Depression glass. Although some of the pieces I’ve bought are for my personal collection, they have sparked my curiosity for art. I began upcycling these one-off pieces that have lost their mates in time by making functional art, pairing together plates and stemware to create dessert plates.
I have been giving away these plates as gifts to family and friends and now I want to give one away to you!
