Hahaha, you crack me up! Great post! The hoosier looks great all decked out for Halloween! I can't wait to see the quilt!

I am LOVING your Halloween displays!

And I completely understand about serious-ness...my bff is fighting breast cancer and there is a whole lot of serious-ness going on in my real world. But in my BLOG world, I can focus on tiny things that make things more fun. Which is a great distraction.

Hugs, Sonya


I love it when you decorate the Hoosier! It's amazing how your Jadite stuff looks good with absolutely every season's decor!

I totally understand that being excited about Swanky Swigs doesn't equal being a frivolous person. I think blogs can give us a place to indulge in our fun obsessions when the rest of our lives are usually more serious but not necessarily blog material. (Love the black star SSs, they are so unusual!)

I can't wait to hear the history because I never even heard of Swanky Swigs until I read your blog. Wouldn't know if I was even looking at one.

Maybe it's time to frame those napkins ... who's psycho now?!

Your daughter sounds like she may be working on an advanced degree in vintage -- how many other teens can include 'swanky swig' in their vocabulary?

*Thanks for the disclaimer. This is where I come to escape reality.


I love, love, LOVE your Hoosier Holidays!!! I am always so inspired by your fabulous displays - I really need to get my Jadeite out so it can be seen and enjoyed. you make it all look so wonderful!


Man you aim high - I'm excited if hubby puts the toilet seat down...and I personally would love to hear more about Swanky Swigs - never heard of them before in Canada (though I was pretty isolated from these sorts of things growing up lol)Jewels


Nice collection of vintage Halloween goodies. Here is more fodder for your future Swanky Swigs postings. I've never heard of them, either. I must have missed those posts. Looking forward to seeing more in the future!

Hide the napkins (or I can always send you some from my stash too). I would be in the same boat as you if Kate's friends used my beloved napkins...am sure we don't want to be known as the psycho moms!


I love the way the jade and orange plays together! It looks perfect for Halloween :-)

Isn't it amazing how fantastic orange looks next to jadeite green? Those star glasses are one of my favorite things of yours! And as soon as I'm done typing this, I'm making a mad dash to Amazon to see if I too can own a Swanky Swig book. I had no idea there was one, and although I thought I had gotten over my obsession years and years ago, you've rekindled it in a big way!


Im in Florida and I dont think Ive ever seen one either! Other than online!

I just found some of these cute swanky swigs at a local thrift store. Never had a chance to buy any before. There they were. They are too cute. Found two with black, two with blue, only 1 red. How much are they worth actually. How many do you have?
