Moonstonel…
(460 items)

This is something I picked up today and Amber told me to get it!!!! Thank you Amber!!! This (5 1/2x3 3/4") small black porcelain cookie jar features gray, blue and white speckles of ceramic "sand" representing the lunar surface covering outside of jar. This delightful ceramic was made by Helen Garriott, wife of Skylab 3 Pilot Owen Garriott and is titled "Earthrise" in reference to the famous Apollo 8 photograph. The top handle on the lid is fashioned in the shape of the earth, which surmounts the lower portion of the jar shaped like the Moon. On the "Moon's" surface are the various lunar mare, with a pair of astronaut footprints near the Sea of Tranquility. Mrs. Garriott made several sizes of these jars in different configurations-this is the smallest size she produced as far as we know." The jar is in excellent condition?
FYI: update Eye4Beauty found the whole link to finding all the information about this jar! If it were not for Eye, ...I would have given up even looking for anything in glassware!!!

    The top knob looks like the earth; you can see continents.
  2. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 1 year ago
    rniederman, Wow!!! You are correct! So what do you think the 3 stars on the side are?
  3. AmberRose AmberRose, 1 year ago

  4. AmberRose AmberRose, 1 year ago
    How is that last name spelled?
  5. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 1 year ago
    Amber, I think either qurriol, qarrioll, gurriol, qarrio?
  6. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 1 year ago
    Amber, the last 2 letters maybe LL? I am stumped!
  7. AmberRose AmberRose, 1 year ago
    Last two "oh"?
  8. AmberRose AmberRose, 1 year ago
    Ha! Eye! You did it! I've been futzing around with spellings for an hour!
    Moon, told you to buy it Sista!

    Amber, you are right!!!!! I will always go shopping with you!!!! I had no idea!! The crazy thing is that my Bella was born in Florida and we saw the space Shuttle go up at least 8 times while living there!!!! This is close to my heart!!! I think I am on cloud 9!!!!! Finally a cool find with history! Thank you Sista!!! U had excellent hunch! I saw it on the shelf going yucky colour! And who would want this thing!!! Sigh...:)))) XOXOXOXO Sista!!!

    Eye, you are AMAZING!!!! Thank you!!!!! Thank you!!! I was about to give up looking for anything new! I thought I did not have the touch! You are wonderful!!!! XOXOXOXOXOXOXO my friend!!!
  11. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 1 year ago
    Eye, all I can say is Thank you!!! For your friendship and continued support with knowledge. I still cannot believe it! I had a hunch...and would not put down the jar at the store. Amber talked me into it. I shot her some pictures of it...and she said go for it! XOXOXOXOXO
  12. AmberRose AmberRose, 1 year ago
    I agree with Eye. You had the tingle, knew it was something, and double checked with a fellow treasure hunter. We all do it. Very cool
  13. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 1 year ago
    Amber, thank you for believing in me!!! I was bummed out thinking I did not find anything cool but, this funky black jar with a copyright :0 We both thought it was ugly and until you said it was pretty on CW. Did I look at this jar differently! All of you are amazing!!! Thank you!!!
  14. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 1 year ago
    Eye, you had mine the first time!!! XOXOXOXOXO
  15. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 1 year ago
    JH, I cannot believe I found a funky black jar like this!!! You are right about not listening to ignorant/silly people(family). I am slowly learning to phase there voice out! But that will take time away and healing the hurts they have caused to my children and myself. XOXOXOXO for you being you!!!!
  16. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 1 year ago
    Eye, can I tell you a funny story? One day I asked my Dad if I was pretty or beautiful like my Mother. My Dad looked at me and said "Oh no your Mother is a Beauty! And you do not look like her at all! You are what I would call Handsome!" So I believe I am not gold...but I do glitter!!! :))))) LOL Sorry about the silly twist I just made up at the end!!! I have learned not to listen to what he was saying either! thanks for reading! :)
  17. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 1 year ago
    Eye, my father would look at the glittery gold....I love the heart of gold! The heart is softer than the metal! Thank you......
  18. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 1 year ago
    JH, well I am a dreamer and a romantic! I will never grow up to never smell the Roses! I love romancing and being romanced! That's living a great life! Xoxoxo
  19. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 1 year ago
    JH, it goes to show...you caught and kept her with her still smiling!!! That says it all!!! Blessed ...blessed!!! My turn is coming!!! Waited 7 years!
  20. rniederman rniederman, 1 year ago
    Now that the mystery is solved, I like this even more.
  21. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 1 year ago
