I love any ceramic with the color pink!

I love this vase!

All of the ceramics here are displayed in the living room at “Willis Wonderland”.

Love the atomic design on the base of this one!

    I got the vase in the top photo and the cocktail glass at two separate times and places. They’re both 1960’s Italian. I had three of the little glasses but two were 1994 earthquake victims. You can see a couple small chips on the bottom of the last remaining glass but they don’t bother me.

    The vase in the second photo was one of the first ones I ever bought. Under a dollar for sure.

    I don’t think any of these were over five dollars. My vase collection is really a microcosm for how I collect. When I come across things that are cheap enough and period enough and I really like them, I buy them. I definitely appreciate them all more and more as the years go by.

    My jaw drops every time I look at the shelves displaying all these incredible pieces. I can’t believe it’s been a year.

    I die over the one with the holes! Beautiful.

    BeeJay – I ned to see the video footage that Allee took of me when I first entered “Willis Wonderland”. I’m almost afraid to view it as we were carrying on with excitement about me being there. I had no idea what came over me but when Allee asked me about my tattoos when I walked in the house, I immediately dropped my pants to expose my inked bum cheeks. What was I thinking!

    Oi gavult! I did open my mouth but I’m usually not one to hide much. If Allee would have let me, I would have dropped my inked ass into her pool.
