Popular



Popular!
Were you popular in school?
I sure wasn't.
Too shy.

Sharing just a few finds from the last few weeks.




Beautiful navy blue satin taffeta ribbon...



A heavy metal wreath...



Was it was for ice cream?



Tin box, egg shaped pewter salt shaker and an old mold.



Classic blue and white...
An American stars and striped bowl and an English Staffordshire pitcher.



Little white ironstone Mustard pot...
...salt shaker and old grater.



Always adding to my kitchen collectibles.
I really should be cooking more!

Love the tin, and little salt shaker.

No, I was not popular either. I was the shy, skinny, ugly little red head 'everyone' picked on.
But I am much better now. =)

No, no, no, wasn't popular. I had my little group of girlfriends and we stuck together like glue. Something about having grown up together in the country before we went to high school in the big city. That is Michigan City, Indiana. Not really big at all, but there were almost 600 kids in my graduating class.

I love old ribbon! Especially self named popular ribbon! xo Joan@anythinggoeshere

good finds. you probably know this already,but it does not hurt to pass this little tip along. if your grater is cylinder, instead of one sided,set in on the counter or table and place a votive in it and light it. it is so simple and looks homey in the evening. Bestest,Denise

Andrea said...

I love your finds.. makes me want to find some of my own tommarow!
