Women of the Year

What can we say about this? It’s a painting. It measures 24¾ inches by 37 inches (including frame). After painting Hugh Laurie as Madonna (we have a thing for Hugh Laurie here if you haven’t guessed), the artist covered the painting with a sheet of plastic painted with the standard sentiments of a “woman’s” magazine in the standard typography of such a publication. Is this irony or adulation?  Or is it a PETA level put-down of what it portrays? And do men need to cheat? If so, do women need to cheat (so the men have someone to cheat with)? Or do the men cheat with other men and/or women in no position to cheat?  Is it lovely or horrible to be in no position to cheat?

Blue Blenko 384 Water Pitcher

We’ve had some trouble before determining with certainty when these are or are not legitimate Blenko. Given the small museum of nice glassware this was associated with (stay tuned!), we’re fairly confident that this is indeed the real thing and that the color is called “Azure”.

8 inches tall, 6 inches wide, and 2¾ inches in depth. In excellent condition.

Yellow Picnic Tin by PicnicRyte

I vaguely remember a tin like this from when I was very little. We’d go to the lake every couple weeks in the summer and mom would pack sandwiches and a heap of cookies wrapped in waxed paper for lunch.  As I recall ours was a red and green plaid.

I still salivate when I hear a tin like this being opened.

Vintage “Picnicryte” steel tin with handles. Made by Nesco. Measures 13¾” long x 9¾” wide x 6″ high.

In good condition.
