As promised this post will be full of antique shop/peddler's mall finds but first I want to share with you what Lori U. won in my giveaway. I may or may not add a thing or two to it but this will give you a good idea of what I will be sending off to her........
Lori I hope you enjoy the spoils of this giveaway! It's just a hodgepodge of things but that's the fun of putting together a giveaway...each item doesn't necessarily have to have anything to do with the other.
Before I start posting pics of the goodies I recently acquired I have to tell you how MAD I am! Since I posted about finding those peanut butter Cheerios a few of you have told me that you went out looking and bought some for yourself as well. I polished off my first box and have been looking for more.
Each time I go to Walmart I go down the cereal aisle scanning the many flavors of Cheerios and the peanut butter ones are NOT THERE!!
I ended up buying a box of cinnamon flavored ones and they are yummy but there are NOT peanut butter Cheerios! I will not give up.
Masterchief on the other hand is a happy camper...
Sausage and cheese on a fresh baked crust will do that to a guy!
Now let's get going with the goodies I picked up recently...........
Blue Willow Child's Tea Set
|Etched Wine Glasses|
You can see the detail better on the second picture. I had bought a very thin, delicate one some time back but it was a bit too delicate for my klutzy hands and it took me no time at all to break it. These are just a bit more sturdy and I have to go through 7 of them before I get to the last one!
You know that heavy white china that they serve your meal to you on when you go to a diner? I like that stuff! I have several old platters and bowls and when I saw these two little bowls for just one dollar each I grabbed them up fast. I like the smaller one best.
Now what do you suppose I could display in these lovely little things?
Well what did you expect? :o)
|Set of 4 Old Blue Willow Plates|
Remember those plates. You will see them again.
|Five Pound Calumet Tin|
|Calumet tin takes it's place among my other cans|
|Amber scissor frog.|
Tiny blue bottle.
Now for the big find I'm most excited about...
|Antique Oak Stash Cabinet|
Each shelf has grooves to hold plates up but I only wanted that on the very top shelf. Now I need more scissors for all my frogs!
Look what I just saw when I looked over my shoulder!
I know this has been a long post and if you are still with me you deserve a gold star! Thanks so much for sticking it out. I hope you all have a relaxing and stitch-productive weekend. I sat down last night to stitch for a while and it seemed that for every x I crossed I had to rip two or three out!
Today is a new day!
