Early American Press Cut Glass Vase

Clear Vase

Early American Press Cut (EAPC) is clear glassware first produced by Anchor Hocking in the very late 1950s and continued for around 10 years. The most common pattern is the Star of David pattern. Collectors so labeled the pattern because of the starburst and a star with in the pattern. There were many, many pieces produced with the pattern. It quickly became something to collect and is still highly sought after today.

I came across this EAPC vase in the attic and listed it today in Sirocco’s Curios on-line curios store. I invite you to stop by and take a look.

Hand Made Greeting Card Simple Pleasures


Grass! “Grass” is the blog topic for this week. That word can have a completely different meaning for some folks than for others. For me it means that soft green that I see on most every suburban yard. Sometimes I envision a vast expanse of prairie grass like what used to be here in the Midwest.

Sifting through our scavenger hunter’s stores I did not find much that meets the “grass” theme. But, I am partial to this cute greeting card from the TalorMade4U store. And, I can see a little grass growing under the bench pictured on the card. I know it is a bit of stretch to connect the card to grass theme. But, still, it is a cute card.

Ceramic Bunny Rabbit



Every Sunday the Online Sellers Network puts up a new blog theme for its members to blog about. It is always fun for me to sift through member stores to see what I can find that fits the theme. This week’s blog theme is “Rabbit.” I found quite a number of items that fit the rabbit theme but I like this ceramic rabbit that I found in Eccentric Thrifter’s store. This bashful little rabbit is brown with grey accents and stands 9 inches tall. Stop in to Eccentric Thrifter’s store and take a look around. She has hundreds of items for sale to delight the thrifty shopper.

Elephant Themed Stationary Set


“Communication” is the Online Sellers blog topic for this week. Communication is such vast subject one could write volumes about it. Put simply, it is the sharing of information between individuals by means such as speech, visuals, signals, writing or behavior, etc. While texting and tweets over the Internet are popular today, it was not long ago that the post office was a main carrier of messages. I still enjoy sending and receiving hand written notes via the post office.

Tiger Creek, one of our bloggers, has a nice selection of stationary and other supplies for sending that hand written note. Stop in, take a look around.
