Hoarder Tendencies

Things have been shit. Sorry for the cussin', but there's no other way to put it. Things got real heavy. So, I haven't really been in a blogging mood. But I did want to share a recent acquisition with you, so you don't feel abandoned, and I can feel a momentary distraction.

Remember way back when I told you about my recent interest in German bisque vases? Well, at the time I had inherited one lovely vase, designed by Tappio Wirkkala.

She's a beauty.
Well, after that my mom gave me another Rosenthal vase.

And then, the pi├Ęce de resistance! Thanks to the eBay app I downloaded on my phone so that I can obsessively check eBay (especially during the day, because the 'Bay is blocked at work), I was able to score a deal on the coveted Wirkkala Pollo vase!

Those curves!
It was honestly the most difficult and annoying eBay transaction of my life, with a seller who was not only disorganized, but also possibly (probably) a big fat liar. However, I got my vase, and I can probably thank the seller's disorganization for the low, low price of this little chicken.

Now, if this little devil lays so much as a white whisker on these I'll make a stew out of him.
