About a month ago, I got it in my head that I needed a vintage display case. It was one of those nagging things that just wouldn't leave me alone. Then I found this one for a good price. I will paint it. After that, I really am not sure what I will do with it. Maybe eventually I will get a store and I can display little treasures in it. Until then, I will probably just display my jewelry in it. Maybe like my bedroom is a cute boutique.
Meet Sophia and Oscar. This couple was passed up by Mr. Hughes and I several times. The price was a little steep. Then one day, one of us was pining for these plates, saying that we should've picked them up. So, we went back and we couldn't find them. Someone was quite disappointed. Then, I spotted them in a cabinet.
Handsome isn't he?
She looks thrilled to be on her own plate.
I have never seen any like them, plus they are on ironstone... what took me so long to bring them home?
I picked up this little covered jar... it is some type of ironstone and is very apothecary-ish. Looks like it had nitrous oxide in it. Wouldn't be awesome to have a whole set of these for spices?
Then, would you look at what Mr. Hughes bought for me for Christmas?
And Grey! I love it. Adore it. And, I was totally surprised.
So, my next post is my 100th post, complete with a giveaway to celebrate me keeping up with something journal like for this long. I will post it on 01.01.10. So, ladies and gents, have a wonderful, safe New Year's Eve and I hope you will stop by on the 1st to enter to win.
