it started with my fun wheeled bag that my dear antiquing friend bought me for christmas. last night i was doing some last minute embellishments to the bag.
first i found this lovely pie plate with the scalloped handles and edge. of course i love it...it is white. anything white i love.
i located these three pieces at 3 separate vendors. they are a lovely sherbet green color, of course pyrex. my heart melts for pyrex. i have 2 of the pie plates that i was able to land for $10. i have had to do some scrubbing on the edge with some paper from my hubby's wet sander but that junk just came right off. they are lovely.
i saw this little gem early on, but i didn't want to fork out the cash at the time. i stewed on it for an hour or so and ended up going back to talk to the vendor. he gave me a discount and i am so glad. it will be the centerpiece on my table for the summer. of course adorned with fresh flowers.
i bought 3 more of the handled bowls that we use on a daily basis for cereal, ice cream, and soup. i plan on using them as my everyday bowls because i only have 3 left from the everyday dish set that was a wedding gift 12 years ago.
this was an exciting find. one, it is white. two, it is the compote that matches a lovely platter that i already had. and three, it was only $3. my favorite thing to do with these pieces is to weave ribbon through the holes to match the decor.
this was the small disappointment of the day. i ran across this lovely little juice glass and small carafe set for $10. it had 4 glasses and a very small carafe that would have held about 16 oz. i passed because the carafe was so small. i found this beauty a couple of rows over, much larger and matched perfectly. when i went back to get the set, it was gone. so the new challenge is to find another. and i will:)
i also bought a lovely little "milking stool" used to milk cows. it is going to be used next to my pantry to reach the high shelves. i am not going to show you yet because i am working on a little project with it. more to come soon!
