Then there is the pretty glass bird. You know how much I like birds, and that I have quite a few of the glass variety around the house. Some collections grow without realizing it's a collection, and my birds are that way. I found this amberina one at an auction and knew it was going to be part of my glass bird collection (and part of my red glass collection as well). Although it doesn't look like it in the photo, it is actually more red than amber.
Red seems to be moving into almost every room of my house, and the kitchen has the bulk of it. I especially like this color I call Chinese red, although it probably has a more accurate name.
I found this little salt and pepper set on eBay; I'd been trying to buy a set for my vintage Tappan stove for some time but always the price was just more than I was willing to pay. This set isn't perfect but it was in my price range, and I'm not perfect either--which makes them a perfect match for me.
