Stunning - Rare - Iconic

Doc Glasslady,

I've been searching for the Husted Floor Vase for 5 long years. It will complete my collection of 58 Husted.
That is assuming I have the winning bid, and the seller answers all my questions.
I'm attaching photo and the listing for you to share with the lazy blog readers who may not know about the Husted Architectural Decanters.

Stunning - Rare - Iconic

Here for auction I have one magnificent American 1958 vintage Blenko Glass architectural floor decanter.

This showpiece being created by Wayne Husted, in turquoise and with the original company foil hand sticker. This wonderful decanter stands 31" tall - its huge!

Nice work of art, that Valentines day card. Took lots of patience. Have enjoyed the pic's and all the commits. Did not realized that there are all theses knew people. Good Job, to everyone.We all look pretty much the same except for the depth of the snow. Saw, Columbus on the weather channel, phone pic's of a snowman in Myrtle Beach, and wake to see the snow still falling every morning. Rog leaves out around 2am to go to Hobit, near Madison,WV, to get a load of coal. The weatherperson said the word Sunshine! I think of that yellow face vase that sits in Hillary's Momma bathroom. Now that is sunshine. To all the knew people on the blog, I help Hillary's Momma, so I get to see. Hillary's last name is HOMBURG! Like the hat. Played one of those hidden object games last week,to my surprise they are putting the little silver sticker on the glass that looks Blenko. These people who make these games really do try to perfect everything. Next you will be able to read the word Blenko.. DocBob, I missed Monday and Tuesday, stomach-up set,had burger and fries from fast food. Won't do that for awhile.I have found that even though I have know gall bladder, I get reminded when I step out of that box. To all please take time to eat healthy and if you stress out to much you will lose one day that organ.Now I have gave you all something else to worry about.LOL! Sol, I am going to request some of that lemon cake, Lemon is good for you. Makes me think of Bill Crosby's one show about chocolate cake, for breakfast.I have maded-up for the days I missed.Pray for sunshine,55degrees, Roxie

What do you do for Hilary's Mom?
I'm certain I could do it, and for free.
