OLA is down right now. It may be a few hours until it gets whatever they're fixing fixed. Don't panic... lol...

I have heard from Dave and he is fine. Louise is fine too. Due to issues beyond his control, he was unable to do our show last Thursday and the Basics to Business show this morning. He does expect to do the OLA show this Thursday. He sends his apologies for any inconveniences or for any worry he caused.

Everybody likes a decadent dessert...these would be the ticket...not tiny like the vintage sherbet glasses and not large...they are just right for a decent but not an over-indulgent portion of dessert. Price is definitely right! Check them out!

Let’s ignore diet tips soon. Remember, “tips” spelled backward is “spit.”
That’s gotta mean something.

Vintage Westmoreland Milk Glass Maple Leaf Candy Box and Scarce Mother of Pearl Paneled Grape Tidbit Tray

Westmoreland Glass, in business from 1889-1984, is one of my favorite vintage glass companies. I always seem drawn to this company's glassware, especially their milk glass pieces. Their most popular milk glass line is called Paneled Grape; this pattern features grape clusters in panels. (Incidentally, Westmoreland was located in the community of Grapeville, PA.)
Shown above is a milk glass Paneled Grape tidbit tray or server, and this one has the beautiful, iridescent, mother-of-pearl finish. This piece is considered scarce. It is available for purchase at

Another smaller milk glass pattern made by Westmoreland is called Maple Leaf or Bramble. This pattern features an all-over leaf design, and it is not found as easily as Paneled Grape. Available for purchase is the round, covered candy box or dish; I also have the cupped bowl available in this pretty pattern.
