Fire King (Love it...)

This is my Favourite Cabinet in my front Loungeroom, filled with my Fire King (Anchor Hocking U.S.A.) collection thus far!! Mostly Peach Lustre and some Milk glass... Four Clear glass Fire King jugs...

This is by far my favourite item to collect, and hopefully 2010 will be great for finding more pieces...




I recieved this book for Xmas from Mr S's Aunt. It is a great read and hopefully I will be able to find some Jadeite pieces..?
I have been busy this year and haven't blogged as much as I would like... But New Year brings new possibilities so fingers crossed I will be more organised!
I have been busy collecting all sorts of pieces from the 50s 60s and 70s, planning on having a stall at the Mill Market at the Ballarat Woolshed. Its full of antiques and collectibles.....
Mr S even bought me a van for transporting the retro furniture I have to the market.
When I am set up I will be able to tell you more... But this is my priority for 2010.... Heres hoping it all works out...
Happy New Year to everyone!!!!

Beautiful collection! My daughter bought me 4 cups and saucers of Peach Lustre last year for Christmas. I have been adding a few pieces when I find them at a good price. I find that Jadeite are too expensive, the but Peach Lustre can still be found at good prices.

Happy New Year.
