The past week has been very stressful, but I did not want to miss VTT. Last Thursday my mother was admitted to the local hospital and just came out today. With daily visits and two snow storms, I haven’t done as much blogging as I’d like.
My vintage thingies for this week are my pink or peach depression glasses. The first I received from my sister and brother in law as a birthday gift a couple decades ago. They are a set of four pilsner glasses. Though I have looked and looked, I haven’t found any in the same pattern. Here they are in my new corner cabinet:
The next two glasses are by Tiffin. They are goblets with gold encrusted rims. I am currrently looking for more in this pattern to use with my pink and white Royal Albert “Lady Carlyle” china.
Thank you for visiting today; I hope you will return soon. To see more vintage treasures, please visit Coloradolady for a list of participating posts.

Welcome to Oak Rise Cottage, the Home of an Incurable Collector!
In this blog I will be sharing my ventures into the worlds of a collector with multiple enthusiasms. At Oak Rise Cottage there are collections such as items with pineapple motif, blue and white dishes and fabrics, tablesetting components, books in both regular and miniature editions, fruit motif items, Christmas holiday accessories, and so on...The pineapple evokes a hostess' love of sharing house and home with family and friends. Guests to Oak Rise Cottage share the collector's bounty -- based on my view that the house should express the personality and interests of the owner.
