Happy Halloween!

I thought that this iPhone 5 case that I created and is available in my Reprise Vintage shop would be appropriately spooky to post for Halloween. Hope everyone receives lots of treats and no tricks this Halloween. Have fun and be safe!

Rednesday: Japanese Redware

This is my photograph for Rednesday hosted by Sue Loves Cherries. These are Japanese Redware pieces from the 1950s. They are more easy to find and a lot more affordable than antique New England Redware pieces. The Redware name comes from the reddish clay used to make them not necessarily from their exterior color which usually is brown or black. These pieces are so very Mid Century and super kitschy!

Do you collect any Mid Century items?

TV Tuesdays: Alfred Hitchcock Presents

I have been enjoying watching old television shows on Netflix. I just got done watching the complete series of "The Twilight Zone". Rod Serling was a genius and many of the episodes have morality themes. Now I am watching "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" from 1955. Alfred Hitchcock was a master of suspense. I also love his sense of humor. I still haven't caught him in a cameo in any of the episodes yet.

What is your favorite old television series?

Music Mondays: Led Zeppelin Kashmir

As a teenager growing up in the early 1970s I listened to a lot of awesome rock bands. I am happy that I lived during the times that what is now called "classic rock" was actually happening. Kashmir by Led Zeppelin is one of those songs that I never get tired of! I love to listen to it when I am creating items for my Reprise Vintage shop.

Do you have a favorite classic rock song?

Reprise Loves: Green Depression Glass

I grew up with a mom who loves antiques. We spent lots of time going to garage sales, thrift stores, antique stores and auctions. So, it was natural that I would love vintage items too.
My mom has collected green depression glass for over 40 years. This past summer I went to visit her and she said that the collection was now mine! I was able to bring some of the collection home with me in my carry on bag on the plane. Over the next couple of years I'll do the same each time I visit. I really don't want to ship such precious items and chance anything getting broken. It may take me awhile to get it all back to my house since it is about 500 pieces of green depression glass. I am so proud and excited to be the keeper of my mom's collection and I look forward to passing it down to my own children someday. Thanks mom! :)

Did your mom pass down any special vintage item to you? Do you collect antique glass? I'd love to hear your stories.
