Hi Friends! I really enjoyed seeing everyone's finds and love the "selfies" to! :)

We just got home, and I'm tired out, Gotta start another sale tomorrow. Upward and Onward, as they say! :)

Sending prayers for Chris and Judy, hang in there, just take it easy - both of ya!

I'll try to post a few pics, later in the week, feeling a bit overwhelmed at the moment.

Happy Hunting Glass Hounds!

Thank you Shirley.

I thought of a toothpick holder but also thought it was too wide.

Comment by Chris Pollock on May 26, 2014 at 12:01pm

Thank you Mary and Brenda, I'll pass your kind words on to her. It's odd, her BP is really good here at home, in the 130/80 range give or take a few numbers. Great picture Brenda, if I can ever get our Mojo and Gracie to sit together I'll post a photo but Gracie hates to get her picture taken.

Comment by Shirley Grundman on May 26, 2014 at 9:43am

Thanks, Brenda & Mary.

Brenda, Awww, what a nice family picture.  Your little Lady, looks to be up in her age.  I have an old dog that is 16 yrs.  She can't hear and walks SLOW.

Brenda, I love your milk glass.  And oh, especially the Imperial Vase.  I've never seen one like that before, I love it! 

Comment by Mary Wald on May 26, 2014 at 7:37am

Praying for her eyes Chris.  Nice selfie Shirley.

I have been finding milk glass this spring, which is perfect for flowers.  The Swirl Vase was by Imperial Glass in the fifties.  It sure does not look like their stuff.  I am really glad it is marked.  It would be so nice if all pieces were marked.

I have been findin

Kathy C.  What you have is not a spooner, but a tooth pick holder.  The pattern is called Beaded Holly Band.  The pattern was made by Greentown in 1903 and now St. Clair Glass is making it again.  Not sure which you have.  It's a pretty little thing.  You would have to see what colors Greentown made theirs in and what colors St. Clair is making them in.  You can also see if there is any ware on the bottom of the tooth pick holder.  If it's shinny and no scuff,  I would say it's St. Clair.

Thank, Chris, thanks Donna.

Shirley - nice selfie of you and Tulip!  You look marvelous!  Tulip is very tame. 

Chris, it sounds crazy bringing a wild bird into your house.  Some animal lovers are a bit crazy.    Good news, that the shot helped Judy.  I take my mom for shots in her eyes, so I know what you mean it's not fun.  I can't watch either.   

Comment by Chris Pollock on May 25, 2014 at 7:59pm

Great picture Shirley, well, now the Hounds have photos of you and I with our birds, Tulip the Goose and Junior the Starling though mine may have to be renamed after we see whether it's male or female. I have been getting such a hard time from this one forum on Starlings, I posted asking about what to feed the one that follows us around while explaining that it's able to feed itself, is gone all night and only comes here we believe for a treat of meal worms. They are so determined that I have to bring the 'poor' thing into the house and put it in a cage. I think it just likes to interact with humans myself. Anyway, not sure what was in the shot but her vision has improved somewhat so hopefully that's a good thing.

Comment by Shirley Grundman on May 25, 2014 at 6:54pm

Chris, that is interesting they are giving her shots in the eye.  I'm sure they have come along way at treating this than when my eye started bleeding.  Will it cure the eye so she can see normal again? 

I did a Selfie, today with my camera.  I couldn't believe it turned out.  I laughed so hard when I looked at my Selfie picture of Me & my Goose Tulip!  I was just playing around with the geese.
