Well, this is just the sort of thing that happens when you have TMS (Too Much Stuff), and you move twice into houses that are already full, and there's no place to put all your stuff:
And boxes of some of the best stuff get buried under other boxes way back in the very back of a full storage unit. (Bauer pottery, etc.):
And you don't lay eyes on them for YEARS (although, at least for the most part, you have never forgotten them!) Fire King Jadite plates and turquoise enamel canisters, etc:
And so then when you finally uncover them, you discover they are wrapped in newspaper from 1992. More Vitrock bowls (you may remember my Vitrock collection), Fire King Peach Luster demitasse cup and saucer, Amy serving bowl:
Yes, 1992 - Mother packed up some of these things for me when I first moved in with my future husband. Nested set of blue Fire King Philbe bowls:
Great. Now I have to try to figure out where in the heck I am going to put them, because I REALLY don't want them to be banished for another 18 years.
