The newest finds are the platter it's just a simple squarish-oval. A Mid Century coffee pot marked USA. Some references say that it's restaurant ware...it's home ware now!!! And those pretty doily's.
Just realized you can't even see the top of the platter!!! But here's a shot of the back. Loved that it's named Snowhite~~~
A pretty ironstone bowl with pink roses and a blue ribbon. I just filled it with glittered pine cones and glass ornaments.
The Salvation Army had about eight of these petite sauce boats. I limited myself to just one. At fifty cents each I probably should of got two!
I also just found the silver wire and capiz shell cross while out junking. Capiz shell is so hard to resist...it whispers to me..."take me home". The shell actually comes from the Windowpane Oyster, which is edible, but valued more for their pearls and translucence shells
Picked up several boxes of those glittery snowflakes last year, so they will be popping up here and there in my decorations. I'm liking them on the table with the aged music sheets.
This little Angel is from Germany and I found him several years ago. I think it's the most sweetest of figurines.
Every time I look at him (he stays out all year in my bookcase) with his hand to his heart at the wonder of the child before him, I always have a rush of sweet emotion.
Got this huge candle several years ago while out junking. It had several layers of a cellophane type wrapping, so I didn't know that it was broken in half and it was literally hanging by a wick! So I had to get creative in order to salvage it. The vintage page was the folder for the music sheets and is of a heavy weight paper so I thought that it would work well. I aged it some more and just modge podged it on.
Added a couple of different widths of lace and tied on the big button with aged rayon seam binding.
Used two sizes of small dishes layered with a doily and set the candle on top and propped up a snowflake. And here's my Fitz and Floyd Christmas Geese shakers from my previous post.
Just layered a doily under the pears to add pattern and interest. Two of the plates are French Haviland and two are White Mist, Staffordshire England
Since it's mostly just me, when I have a meal, I move things over and pop down a place mat . I can have my table and enjoy it too!
~~~Thank you for popping in
Happy Hunting and Gathering~~~
