For Good Measure

Every tool bench has a tape measure of some kind.

Each dressmaker or seamstress has one as well.

They’re obviously useful collectibles even today.


Luckily, I spent a lot of fun times playing with these as a child when the adults were too busy to care!







Award-Winning Art Nouveau


Our early springtime flower & and vintage vase pairing feature concludes as we shine a spotlight on the charming pink camellia.


With visions of cascading camellias in a vase like this one, natural  appreciation and accolades would be expressed by all admirers.

While other garden gems may last longer, the tulip is a beloved part.

No matter what challenges or celebrations come our way,

a bouquet of tulips makes the day brighter.

The vase pictured below is perfectly fitting for any tulip trio.
