Just showing a few of my finds from the past month while I was away, for those of you who are interested....
I found a sweet little sauce boat ... instant love! This is one of my favorite things to collect: buffalo china (or restaurant china/restaurantware), and with a brown pattern to boot. I'll say it again...sigh, instant love. (This isn't where it is going to stay. It's just sitting there at the moment...looking alllll pretty and such... ;o)
It's impossible for me to stop collecting footed bowls, compotes, preserve dishes, trifles, and the like. Highly impossible. I have entirely too many recipes for delicious dips and bowl desserts.
Another addiciton...cookbooks. Y'all've heard me say it before...I could read cookbooks all the live long day and not be bored. Plus, it's Julia Child....hello.
(P.S. Have any of y'all seen that Julie and Julia movie? Thoughts?)
(P.P.S. Did you notice the double contraction up there...."y'all've"? Impressed? Or did you cringe?)
Loved the coloring on this cover below.
I got a new swing arm lamp for the living room. I loved these details.
Baskets. Of course. What can I say...
This old licorice box I don't get to keep. It's for Kelly Jo, but don't you just love it?
I found this set of buffalo china platters with a smoky blue transfer and a crest that reads "Felicitas Multos Habet Amicos" - which translates "Prosperity has many friends." Not necessarily one of the sweetest sentiments in my mind, but hey, at least it's written in Latin and looks pretty. Haha! When I found these in an antique shop for a price so ridiculously cheap, I literally clutched them so tightly till I could pay for them and haul tail out of the parking lot before anyone in there realized what had happened. The mixed sounds of my triumphant cackle and spinning gravel was all they knew. Mwahahahahahaha!
