V V V Treasury of Vintage Vessels and Vases

I have been creating a lot of treasuries on etsy lately. I enjoy grouping objects in an attractive way as if I was making a window display for an "offline shop." I enjoy trying to find new shops to turn the spotlight on. I try to include "older" (meaning they have been for sale for a while) items as well as affordable (my definition, not what an AIG exec considers affordable!) things.

This morning, the spotlight I created is called V V V for Vintage Vessels and Vases. Once again, I had a blast searching through the vintage category on etsy for vases and bowls. Now that Spring has arrived, although you can't really tell by the weather in NYC, I will be searching for vases in which to place bouquets of fresh flowers. I never seem to have enough vases and they are often basic, utilitarian pieces rather than the lovely items I found for this treasury.

The ruby glass bowl above is from Cheshire Cat Antiques & Collectibles and is inlcuded in the new V V V treasury.


  1. That's a gorgeous bowl! I took a glass blowing class and let's just say that it wasn't my thing. I work better in slow and methodical mediums. Glass blowing is fast and hot! The class gave me a whole new appreciation for glass works.

    I also stopped by to let you know that I gave you a Lemonade Award on my blog to show my appreciation. http://joslinjewels.blogspot.com

  2. Thanks! I follow your blog so I'll check it out. I admire your foray into glass blowing. That has always been something I've wanted to try, (along with throwing pots, felting wool and weaving rugs) but haven't, yet! It's true that you gain an appreciation and respect for other people's abilities when you "walk in their shoes."
