- The internet tells me that Saturday is National Cherish an Antique Day. There's a day for everything, I think! The few antiques I have are inherited from my late parents and this vase, there in the middle, is my favorite, I think.
It's a Fenton Hobnail Milk Glass rose vase, probably made in the late 1940s. My parents likely received it as a wedding gift. When we were clearing out the storage shed on the last day we were at our family home a few years ago, I found it among some clay pots. I remembered it from childhood - mom used to have a houseplant in it, I think. I'm keeping collected matchbooks in it right now, but roses would be pretty. I never knew it was called that until yesterday. See image below found online:

That's an azalea bloom plucked from the condo property stuck in one of those water holding vials:
Procrastination should be my middle name. :) I hope you have a lovely weekend, my friends!
