    Happy Valentine's Day!
    Don't you just love when you find something that is on you wish list. As some of you know I am on a Scandinavian glass hunt. I have found Kosta Boda snowballs like crazy (7 not counting the two fakes) and a few cool others. I have had my eye out for these Iittalia candle sticks. This is the shortest of the series and I want them all. I tried a new thrift which was crazy and packed as it was half price day and there it was. I used a fine tooth comb to find any other to no avail. Did however find this pig that is so ugly that it is adorable. I also found a bunch of stuff that people had hidden, which is so funny to me.
    Pig going to go to my expectant sister for the baby.
    Candlestick is now added to my growing empire!!!!!

      Be careful with these too! There are wannabe versions. Go for the stickers.

      Thanks for the info V! Good info for spotting fakes. Mine doesn't have any yellow color, and is signed. Feels right and has the same quality look as the other pieces I have. Since I am on a quest for the set spotting fakes is always helpful!
      You are jealous of the piggy aren't you? Certainly would fit in with your collection ;)
      Happy VDay V!!!

      I love these festivo. They comein 8 sizes, each with a different number of nods or rings... I've got the ones with 1 to 5 rings... hope to get the three bigger ones soon :). As usual, great finds!

      Been waiting for you to notice Scandi! Yep, completely excited. Pig "ain't" bad either. Hope you are doing well.

      I am never one for matchy matchy! I like a good mutt of things/shapes/colors.
