Let us put by some hour of every day for holy things...

Think on th' eternal home,
The Saviour left for you;
Think on the Lord most holy, come
To dwell with hearts untrue:
So shall ye tread untired His pastoral ways,
And in the darkness sing your carol of high praise.

--from Keble's The Christian Year, Thoughts in Verse

Thou Shalt Not Covet

Etsy is a great social outlet. It beats Face-Slap all to pieces. Every week I get wonderful, chatty "convos" (messages) from other Etsians, both buyers and sellers.

Last week I had the pleasure of talking with a terrific lady named Anjie who collects Pyrex, Fire King, and all sorts of delightfully tacky plastic. She sent me photos of her fabulous collection and said that I might share them with you. Oh, oh, my!!!

I warn you, mid-century vintage afficionados will find this a perilous post to peruse.    ENVY ALERT!  ENVY ALERT!

Let's see, I have the same orange glasses on the left side of the 2nd shelf, and the same blue melmac pieces on the next-to-the-bottom shelf.

Here I see the same harvest gold Pyrex bowls that I have on Anj's top shelf. I sure love her yellow and orange pyrex!


I hesitate to tell you that these are not all the photographs Anjie sent to me. She has more. (I'm not sure which I'm most envious of--her dishes, or her cupboard space!) Isn't it marvelous? I am in awe! I am drooling! I am breaking the tenth commandment!

Do you have any of the same pieces? I've got some, but it's a drop in the bucket compared to this extravaganza. 

I must say, I'm inspired to do a better job of displaying my own collections now. I'll have to do some thinking about that. I've also been motivated to prepare a viewing of one of my own collections for you tomorrow! Yes, TWO postings in a row!! 

Do I hear a "Hip, hip!" ?
