Hiya Kathy - are you keeping warm there in SA? I do hope so! :)

Comment by vicki hufstetler on June 18, 2014 at 7:09pm

WTG Chris and Judy! I'm so happy to hear she's home at last! Indeed wonderful news! :)

Angela - Shirley is right - You are a true blue "glass hound" in every way! That was my inspiration for this group's name. I too, can "smell" glass from a hundred paces even by road, looking for garage sales - always could! LOL

That candlestick is stunning! I LOVE it! Never seen one like it either! It looks like a "Mask and Urn" or sometimes spelled "Masque and Urn" would that be a pattern name, or close to it? Please do keep us posted, if you find out!

The Davidson is also gorgeous, of course! And, I'm sure your right about it being "Prince William" - I just wonder if it were produced here by Northwood? It looks very much like some of their pieces? I'm so "not up on" English makers and patterns, I love to learn about these things! Do you happen to know if Davidson also exported to us?

In any case thanks for sharing those lovely finds!

Well, Sale is FINALLY over! WOW! We did great! I was very happy that all the really fine, antique dolls found new owners! :) And the family is very happy to!

Of course I've lost my voice at this point and the back is killing - but I'll be just fine by Friday! LOL

Happy Hunting!

Angela, Your not Blood Hound, your Glass Hound, Blood Hounds follow a people trail, Glass Hounds follow the Glass trail.  And yes, you did.  Love your Davidson blue opalescent basket.  I would love one of those in my basket collection one day.  That candle stick is a fancy one.  Wonderful finds! 

Comment by Angela Evans on June 18, 2014 at 5:32pm

Chris...an answer to our prayers to hear that Judy is back home safe and sound, made my day wonderful news !! The sun is shining here and I hope it is shining on you too.

Went back to Hereford today (husband had some work there so I tagged along) dropped him off and took a wrong turn into the city and low and behold I found an Antiques Centre ( my husband reckons I am like a bloodhound and can sniff out glass from miles away !!) I found some lovely glass there but resisted all but these two pieces.....This is a piece of blue Pearline by Davidson it has a reg no 217752. I think in USA you call this pattern Prince William.

The second piece is by Sowerby I have yet to find the reg. no for it its very tall about 10.5 inches....it has a very ornate top...and two different panels on the base...

Chris that is great news - i am so proud of you - its not easy but looks like you have everything under control, sending wishes from SA and you both take care

love kath

Comment by Betty Proper on June 18, 2014 at 11:43am

Chris, That is wonderful news! 

(Well, all except that $132 for the insulin pen - when one of our cats had to be on insulin we found that Costco was the place to go - luckily a change of diet took care of the cat's problem.)

Looking forward to hearing how Judy is doing and about your forays in the kitchen. 

Comment by Donna Cook on June 18, 2014 at 10:39am

Chris, that is wonderful news about Judy being home.  Hope you both get some rest. 

Comment by Chris Pollock on June 18, 2014 at 10:20am

Good morning Hounds! Well, Judy is finally home and now the real work begins. She got home about 2:30 yesterday and I spent the rest of the day running around and getting her meds. Luckily I was able to get most of them at the Army hospital on Ft. Hood. There were two however that I couldn't, one of her insulin pens and a heart med. The insulin pen I had to pay for was $132.00! I can imagine how much this would all cost if I had to pay for all of it. I am so lucky that one of our DILs is an RN, she came over yesterday and setup all her medications, made sure she knew how go use her blood sugar tester and generally made sure everything was ok. I want to again thank all of you here for your prayers and heartfelt words during this time we greatly appreciate them. We've got a lot of changes to make and it's going to be a long road but we'll make it. Hopefully in a couple of weeks she'll be up to going on a little road trip. I've still got some glass from awhile back to identify I'll post it here when I get the chance as I believe I've already looked through all my books. That's about it for now hounds, I'll be back on sometime later today.

Comment by Shirley Grundman on June 16, 2014 at 10:51pm

Mary, your rose bowl looks darling!  I would love to see a photo of it with out the flowers when you get a chance.  If I didn't have so MANY collections right now, I would collect rose bowls.  I love them. 

Chris, hang in there, praying for you and Judy.

Vicki, that is wonderful on your estate sale. 

Comment by Chris Pollock on June 16, 2014 at 10:48pm

Thanks Vicki, that sounds good. Sounds like it's diabetic friendly too. I'll give it a try when Judy gets home. Tell you what with the price of hamburger being $4.37/lb here for the 80/20 it's getting out of hand. I see gas is starting to rise here also, it took a  3 cent hike at one station today. I'm looking for it to start jumping a whole lot more real soon. Thanks again Vicki.
