Rediscover the Beauty of Age


This is one of my favorite things! It is a pre-1970 American Fostoria Pedestal Cake Plate.

I am a big believer in reducing, reusing, and recycling. One of the ways that I participate in this is by collecting and repurposing vintage glass pieces. I find these heavy and beautifully crafted pieces and offer them an extended life as a part of my life.

I started an online bookstore on Earth Day 2008 called Earth Day Books via Amazon Marketplace. I collect and sell very clean books.  This is just another way that I contribute to reduce, reuse, and recycle. I started this business out of my love of children books, non-fiction, and cookbooks. After the flood of 2011, several schools and libraries lost their books. I donated the majority of the books I had left in my inventory to them. They needed them more than I did. A few were donated to goodwill as well.

I think if everyone can find a small way to contribute to the concept of reducing, reusing, and recycling…the world would be a little bit better off than it is today. Just my opinion…
