For the china/glassware fans: Mood-lifting Depression glass

I may have written about this before, but I collect LE Smith Mt. Pleasant in black -- which was their most popular color, and haunts many antique malls. I like black frilly stuff, so I just about died when I encountered my first piece. It's so BEAUTIFUL, and unlike any of the clunky black stoneware dishes out in modern production.

Some of you may have seen pieces of Hazel Atlas Crinoline, which is obviously a Flickr favorite, and has even inspired Re-ment replicas.

But in my idle browsing tonight, I chanced upon another cutesy pattern: Cherry & Cable, which somehow puts me in mind of the more precious sweet lolita dresses, so I had to share it with you all. (Particularly pieces like this pitcher or this jar, which is amazing.)

I'm personally coveting the black/amethyst carnival butter dish, which may be the single most awe-inspiring butter dish I've ever seen. And there's a miniature version!

Watch Pins?

Apologies if this is too off topic, but I need help finding a jewelry item and hoped you lovely ladies might be able to help.

I've decided I'd like to get myself a pretty pin watch, like the kind nurses used to wear. (Small pin with a dangling watch pendant, to be worn on chest/pocket.) I've looked on ebay and Etsy and as well as in stores, but haven't had any real luck. Do any of you know a place where something like this could be found, preferably not too expensive? Or whether people sell little watch pendants, which I could possibly turn into a pin on my own? (I've seen pocket watch pendants available on Etsy, but they're a bit larger than what I was looking for.)

Thanks in advance for your help. ^^
