So far

Things seem to be going pretty well on etsy, as far as 'just starting out' goes..I hope I can soon fill my pages with the things I had in mind when I thought up my name, Argentum Vintage. When I first came up with the name, I had visions of high tea services, old shaving kits, and antique medical instruments.
But, I have to say, I am pretty content with the way things are now.

Glass fetish

Is there such a thing?
I have always loved glass. I remember collecting pieces of it on the beach, smoothed down from the sand and salt in the water. I once lived above a stained glass shop, and I would often find beautifully color-swirled shards all over the sidewalk. I like that fact that it's usually cool to the touch, but it can also be made to be extremely hot.
I'm not sure how many bottles I have in my apartment, and I refuse to count them. They range from a small soy sauce bottle that I use to water my plants to antique decanters from the late 1800's. The weirder shaped, the better.
