Kimberly Mugs...

Clearly these were meant to come home with me.


They are called Kimberly Mugs- my first name in case you don't know. How fun! I brought these home the other day from the church yardsale. I think they were living with the plastic cups I posted about. I was searching the Internet to get the proper spelling of Fire-King- which these are- and discovered the oh so fun connection. You can read more here.

I feel another collection starting.

They are so beautiful! Love the color. I tend to gravitate towards colored glasses.

Just a fw mere years ago Fire King would go thru the roof in prices, then Martha Stewart came along & created repro's that killed the market for the authentic pieces. Very nice find. TTFN ~ Marydon

When something has your name on it...well...then it comes home with you! Just a fact! :)

They are pretty! Another good weekend for yard sales? You were lucky. I went to about 8 yard sales and found 1 little thing, and not nearly as neat as your mugs.

You may have to start a whole new sidebar thing with your collections, Kim. Or start a meme or something. You are becoming the collection queen! They are so cute.
