Visit our board for the April Birthstone - Diamond
https://www.pinterest.com/TIASAntiques/april-birthstone-diamond/

As the April birthstone, diamonds are the ideal gift. They also make up traditional engagement rings. Diamonds in shades of yellow, red, pink, blue, and green range in intensity from faint to vivid. The more saturated the color usually means higher value. Here is a selection of diamonds from merchants on tias.com You can see even more at www.TIAS.com

We just started a new board for Soup Tureens! More to be pinned there soon!

Here's a reprint from an November 2003 newsletter:
As a child, I spent much time with my Grandfather. Although I was a little girl, he always took me fishing with him, go to the beach and just walk and look for priceless treasures. Times I will never forget. I was a little tomboy and he called me his "Punkin Seed." This name stayed with me always. When I was in my 40's, my grandfather passed away. I was crying and said to my husband, "I know this is silly, but no one will ever call me Punkin Seed again." I can't explain how that hurt. A couple of months later, a friend talked me into going to a large Christmas Bazaar. Something I really did not want to do because of the 3 hour drive and not feeling into Christmas because of my loss of Grand dad. As we walked through the bazaar, something drew me to a booth with a lady that had made beautiful porcelain dolls. Dolls were never something I played with, but I was looking at her dolls. I picked up a doll that had blond hair, blue eyes and little blue overalls. Just like me as a child out with Granddad. The tag read that the dolls name was "Punkin Seed" I fell apart and trying to hide as the tears ran down. The lady that had made the dolls approached me and I apologized for my behavior and explained about the doll. She told me it was ok and to take my time hiding in the corner! After regaining myself somewhat, I thanked her and walked out of the booth and down the aisle. About 25 feet away, someone tapped me on the shoulder. It was the doll lady. She handed me Punkin Seed and told me to take her. That the doll would mean more to me than the money would to her. Then we both cried. I will never forget the kindness of this special lady. 12 years later, Punkin Seed is in a glass case and sits beside my bed. I think of Granddad and thank this special lady daily....Laura

Here's a vintage recipe from a 1963 Cambell's Soup ad:
http://www.tias.com/campbells-soups-ad---1963-561792.html

Onion Pot Roast

Campbell's Onion Soup is both the seasoning and the perfect onion gravy.

3 to 4 lb. beef pot roast
1 can Campbell's Onion Soup

In heavy pan, brown roast on all sides. (Use shortening, if needed.) Stir in soup. Cover; cook over low heat 2 1/2 to 3 hrs. Remove meat. To thicken gravy, gradually blend 1/4 cup water into 2 to 4 tbsp. flour; slowly stir into soup. Cook; stir till thickened. Serves 6 to 8.
