Adding To My Small Jadeite Collection

Hello, Dear Ones!
I love Jadeite, don't you?
The soft pale minty green makes my head swirl.
Which brings me to my recent find...
 Tadah!!
A pretty little swirly minty green Jadeite bowl.
 She is a beauty.
 She goes perfectly with my bigger Jadeite swirly bowl.
One more swirly bowl of the appropriate size and I'll have a set of three.
 Well, I have three bowls, but the bigger one in the back is as smooth as a baby's bottom 
and has not one swirl, but I'm keeping her.
 Here's my little small collection of Jadeite.
 You've seen my most gorgeous Jadeite Rooster which is not an olden piece.
 Then at the Cracker Barrel, I found these new darling little salt and peppers which I'm using every day.
 Do you like my little collection? 
Oh, wait a minute...
...have you seen my little cow creamer?
I know, I'm shameless! :)
Well, as I've said before ~ she keeps popping up so I decided to give her a name.
Blog friends, meet Buttercup!!
Never hurts to have a little Buttercup cow creamer with your Jadeite.
Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia :)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Build Me Up Buttercup 


Why do you build me up (build me up) Buttercup, baby
Just to let me down (let me down) and mess me around
And then worst of all (worst of all) you never call, baby
When you say you will (say you will) but I love you still
I need you (I need you) more than anyone, darlin'
You know that I have from the start
So build me up (build me up) Buttercup, don't break my heart
"I'll be over at ten", you told me time and again
But you're late, I wait around and then (bah-dah-dah)
I went to the door, I can't take any more
It's not you, you let me down again
(Hey, hey, hey!) Baby, baby, try to find
(Hey, hey, hey!) A little time and I'll make you mine
(Hey, hey, hey!) I'll be home
I'll be beside the phone waiting for you
Ooo-oo-ooo, ooo-oo-ooo
Why do you build me up (build me up) Buttercup, baby
Just to let me down (let me down) and mess me around
And then worst of all (worst of all) you never call, baby
When you say you will (say you will) but I love you still
I need you (I need you) more than anyone, darlin'
You know that I have from the start
So build me up (build me up) Buttercup, don't break my heart
You were my toy but I could be the boy you adore
If you'd just let me know (bah-dah-dah)
Although you're untrue, I'm attracted to you all the more
Why do I need you so
(Hey, hey, hey!) Baby, baby, try to find
(Hey, hey, hey!) A little time and I'll make you mine
(Hey, hey, hey!) I'll be home
I'll be beside the phone waiting for you
Ooo-oo-ooo, ooo-oo-ooo
Why do you build me up (build me up) Buttercup, baby
Just to let me down (let me down) and mess me around
And then worst of all (worst of all) you never call, baby
When you say you will (say you will) but I love you still
I need you (I need you) more than anyone, darlin'
You know that I have from the start
So build me up (build me up) Buttercup, don't break my heart
I-I-I need you-oo-oo more than anyone, baby
You know that I have from the start
So build me up (build me up) Buttercup, don't break my heart

  4. Good morning Shelia and Buttercup! As soon as you said her name was Buttercup, I heard that song in my head! :)
    I love your little collection of jadeite and now I don't have to be jealous because I was gifted a piece recently!
    Once I shine it up a bit, I'll show it on my blog.

  7. OMG, Shelia. I am laughing at the way you worked that Buttercup into one more post. lol You ARE shameless! Your Jadeite collection is wonderful. My Mom had a few pieces of it and now I wish I had it. I don't know where all my Mom's stuff went now that my brother died. I think he had a lot of it stored. Gone now.....xo Diana

  20. Shelia,
    Buttercup is not about to be upstaged by your newest Jadite find, is she???
    Adorable, dear friend!!!
    I love when I find another piece of a collection I have.
    Sometimes, I look for pieces to go with my collection. . .
    those are the times I turn up empty handed.
    Other times, while just browsing through. . .
    I'll come across a collectable piece!!! Those are the best!
    I have a few additional collection pieces that I'll be showing, soon!
    Have a wonderful week ahead!
    Fondly,
    Pat

  32. I do love Jadite. I bought the same salt and pepper shakers at Cracker Barrel the other day. I also got the clock. I have a Coca Cola jadite cookie jar from CB and a little jadite bowl with Coca Cola on the lid. No old pieces. Lovely collection that you have.

  36. Hi Sheila, what a gorgeous collection of Jadeite. I love the way you have it displayed. I have always admired Jadeite and the beautiful minty green that seems to go with everything.
    Thank you for sharing. Hugs

  37. Hi Shelia,

    Your swirly bowls are so pretty! I LOVE that rooster and the salt and peppers -- too cute. :) Do you watch the Antique Roadshow? My husband and I love to watch it, and we've seen some very valuable Jadeite on the show; I bet those bowls are very collectible.

    I think Buttercup is a perfect name for your little cow. :) Thanks for reminding me of "Build Me Up Buttercup"; I loved that song back in my youth and haven't thought about it in a long time. Have a great day, Shelia -- visiting from Inspire Me Tuesday.

    XO,

    Denise at Forest Manor
