Pyrex Looney Toons and Spaghetti Poodles.

I have been collecting a ton of glass, for the past several months. It’s lots, like these, that cost the less then what Good Will would charge.

I am so very fortunate to be a part of these local FB groups, and even more blessed to have gotten to know most of the ladies, personally.

Earlier this week, I scored on another lot of spaghetti poodles and chalk ware planters.  This are things that seem to come and find me. I think I counted 9, plus the poodle bank she’s throwing in. She says she’s moving onto a huge parcel of land, into a tiny home to retire in, soon. How cool? Right?

Let’s talk Verde and Spring Blossoms

This gallery contains 17 photos.

It took me a little while before I got my Pyrex groove back on. It’s sad when you have your first collection stolen by a psycho X. After a few years, I had to figure out if I wanted to search to replace or just start over. I chose the healthy thing to do, which […]

Georges Briard

My first piece

My first piece of Georges Briard inspired Culver Glassware for Pyrex

Georges Briard was an acclaimed designer for glassware. I didn’t know of him, until I purchased this platter at a local thrift store. Even more so, he had been a part of my life, growing up.

Beautiful art work.

My nana had several pieces of Briard, such as this glassware for Libby. As you can see, his signature is very prominent. You won’t have trouble identifying his pieces.

This pattern is called Icicle in yellow.

Fruit and Veggies. You can see his style is pretty distinctive.

And the hits keep coming! I swear, there's a Briard for everyone!

The platters are what I find reminiscent, the most. The images of fruit and vegetables or the ornate gold zodiac/sand dollars are screaming late 60s early 70s. The service ware came in beautiful gold colored trivets, and had several pieces to a set.

This service set belong's to my friend, Summer. In her words, and I agree, it is AMAZEBALLS.

This service set belongs to my friend, Summer. In her words, and I agree, it is AMAZEBALLS. The design is that sand dollar look, as mentioned above.

I’m sure people may mistake the Zodiac Pyrex for a Briard, but it is not. No signature!

Actually, I cannot find who is responsible for this design, so it is simply considered a Pyrex pattern.

Fluff

Fluff

I love Fluff. Their characters are adorable and very girlie. They fall right in line with Pin Up, Rockabilly and Burlesque. I am a bit of a bag/luggage whore, so, they have got me by achilles. Check out their train cases, luggage tags, make up bags….OH MY. Have I mentioned that I am also a sucker for great packaging. Hi. Yes, I am their target demographic. I found them in a sampler shop, in Santa Monica. I was shoping for a gift for my gal pal, Evie, and saw a cigar box with these colors and graphics, I had to open it it. I would not have been surprised if it were bon bons or cupcakes, mind you. This box contained a t-shirt. SOLD! Ring ‘er up, I’m on my lunch break.

Another thing I really like about them, is that they offer a variety of mobile phone skins. Not just everything i. I do not own apple, and I have serious issues with becoming a slave to the i. So, thank you, Fluff, for considering the rest of us. I am going koo koo for the Hula Lulu, right now.

And then you have the Wall Dolls. So sweet, my teeth ache. Inspired by chalk ware. They are too cute for words. I can’t help but think that I’d decorate my baby girl’s room with this. I don’t have children, maybe that’s a good thing?
