F is for Free!

I visited my mom last week for a nice few days of sewing, shopping and relaxing at the farm. She recently began to unpack some of her vintage glassware that was hidden away. Of course as we were going through it I fell in love with a few pieces and she let me take them home with me!

I'm sure you've noticed I have quite the obsession with pink glassware. Now I have a few more pieces under my belt!

I also had mentioned to my mom that I was on the hunt for a nice globe and she gave me this!

It's actually her retirement gift from years as a teacher. Since my step dad is a teacher as well they had two exactly the same so n ow one is mine. Each country is a different stone, isn't it nice?

I also snagged this from their barn. It's from the 70's. I'm not sure if I should reframe it or just clean it and use it as is. What do you think?

It always seems like I come home from my mom's with more than I came with. Does this happen to you?

Yes - this happens to me a lot with my mama. Looks like you scored some great stuff, though! I'm headed to my mom's farm in Oregon in two days! Hopefully, I'll find some goodies too and bring them home to Dallas!

Now this is happening when I visit my older sisters! Hey, I would reframe with something bright and fun, get rid of the faded matt. Modern it up a bit b/c that Zepplin certainly was modern back in 1929...pink glass!!! YUMMY

Haha. I usually do that when I visit my mom, but it's all books. She's still holding on to all the other good stuff. :) The glassware is divine!
