My apologies to everyone for being a little absent lately and my thanks to Karen +Mullard Antiques and Collectibles for picking up my slack!
My son is home from the Navy after 8 months and I've been a little preoccupied with family time.
My kitchen is a mess from non stop cooking and I'm behind on most things...but there really is nothing like a little family time!
Here he is with our granddaughter and his niece, Taylor. She loves her uncle who lives on the "big boat":)
One more precious week and I'll be back to my usual sharing and commenting.
Thanks to everyone who's jumped in to assist others during this time. It is truly appreciated and is really what a "community" is all about!

As a community, many of us seem to have a variety of furry, feathered, and hairy friends whom help us with our lives and businesses. Since we often mention them in our discussions and listings, +Pam WhimsicalVintage and I thought it would make a nice change for us to share some pictures of our V&A pet community members doing what they do on a day to day basis: making us smile!
I'll start off with my Devon Rex cat, Var, in his favourite place (other than my knee when I am trying to work!). His tent, but only when the sun is shining!

It's kind of fun to think that in 1937, when this book was produced by a Hollywood California Mexican novelty shop, California had been a state for less than 90 years. Americans have been in love with Mexican food for a long time, and we are still in love with it today!

This is an unusual and large vintage 1940s Kirkland & Company Embassy Ware Winston Churchill Toby Jug. This is really a character jug as it only shows the head and shoulders of the figure. It is cream/honey-coloured and press-moulded earthenware and extremely rare!
