mug shots

Lordy, as if I don’t have enough things over which to obsess, I think I’ve accidentally rekindled my fixation with Fire King glassware! It’s been a good year or two since I bought a Japanese book about Fire King, and I haven’t collected any pieces for a number of years. So far, so good, but then last week when we were camping, the people we camped with were so gracious and generous that I decided, hey, I should get them the Japanese Fire King book, since they collect a bunch of Fire King. One thing led to another, and I ended up ordering not just that one Fire King book but three others on Fire King and Pyrex and other fun stuff.
This book takes the cake, I think:

Dudes, it’s all about Fire King mugs! I quiver just thinking about amassing all these novelty mugs!
Look, don’t you think Peter should build me similar shelves?

Honestly, some of these make me want to cry and pee at the same time! I’m not the best finder of good old stuff, so my pocketbook might be somewhat safe.
Here’s another book I got:

ISBN 4-582-63410-9
It’s called “Junk Ware.” Ha ha ha! Anyway, I have one more book coming, but my brother is currently holding it hostage (well, not really, but it sounds more dramatic that way, doesn’t it?).

    If you’re going to have a wardrobe full of green, then you must collect green Fire King mugs. It’s as simple as that.

    Cool book, I want one. Yep the shelves are nice too. Marg’s mug swap idea is a winner.
