Oil and Vinegar?

Hello, Dear Ones. Well, I did it again - I found something I couldn't resist. I just walked into a thrift shop, you know, just to take a peep, not really looking for anything and there they were! 
That's happened to you all hasn't it? Well, just look! What was I supposed to do? Pass up this gorgeous pair? No, no Nannette! Not me! :)
 They're olden and one of the tops had been chipped and didn't want to stay in the bottle. So, the most talented one that I am decided to twirl some double sided tape around the stopper part and poke it back into the bottle! It worked! I know, I know, it's a bit tilty, but that's okay with me.
 Don't know anything about this pair but here's the bottom and it's stamped 'Germany'. Works for me.
I'm not actually going to put oil and vinegar into the lovely bottles, so for now they're hanging out in my mother's little china cabinet!
Just so you'll know...I was summoned for jury duty and they picked me! I've always wanted to serve on a jury, never have, but this is certainly a busy time for me as we're packing up (again) for our move to New York in a little over two weeks. But anyway, back to jury duty. If I don't get back to you, just know I'll be fighting the good fight, deciding between good and evil and all that stuff! Wish me luck.
Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia :)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~ 

Here Come The Judge

Hear ye, hear ye
The courts in session
The courts in session, now
Here comes the judge
Here comes the judge
Here comes the judge
Here comes the judge
Here comes the judge

Stop eatin that fudge
Cause here comes the judge
Don't nobody buzz
Cause here comes the judge
Judge Shorty is presidin today
And he don't take no stuff from nobody
No kind of way

Hey boy, take off that hat
Where do you think you're at
I know where you gon be
If you don't heed my plea
I'm here to tell you
Courts in session
Order in the court now
Courts in session
Can't nobody smoke now
Here comes the judge
Here comes the judge
Here comes the judge
Here comes the judge

Here come the judge,
Here comes the judge
Yall here comes the judge
Order, order
What's the first case on the docket
Judge I got a boy here who can't dance
Can't dance? Ah
Ninety days, thirty days for boogaloo
Thirty days to learn how to shing-a-ling
And thirty more for the Afro twist
Can't dance, what is this
Courts in session everybody quiet now
Courts in session, here comes the judge
Here comes the judge

Is that the man?
No, your honor
Does he look like the man?
No, your Honor
Well, I'm sorry you got to go now
Ah ha you can't recognize the man
You got to stand guilty
Here comes the judge
Here comes the judge
Here comes the judge
Ah yes, here comes the judge
They caught him stompin down the aisle
Yes here comes the judge
I'd rather be lost in the jungle of Brazil
Than to face the judge
This morning the way he feels
Here comes the judge
Here comes the judge boy
~ sung by Shorty Long

  2. They are sweet Shelia. I don't know anyone who can resist blue and white.
    Good luck with your jury duty. I've done it twice in the past and really enjoyed the experience.

  4. So pretty. They look right at home in your mother's china cabinet.

    I have to go for jury duty AGAIN in August. I have served 3 times now, 2 trials and once as party of the Grand Jury for 6 months. That one was interesting and just 1 day a month.

  6. Great finds, dear!

    Yikes, I hope to never ever be called to Jury Duty. I'd hate it. My husband has been picked twice in our married years and both times there were delays and changes, he ended up not even needing to go in, much to his surprise. He was looking forward to it, too. Again, better you two then me I guess!

    We will miss you. Hugs.

  9. Such great finds! I love that little platter. I was on jury duty a couple of years ago and I enjoyed it. I sat on the jury for a week while two extremely wealthy - and well-known - businessmen in our area haggled over who had the right to cut down a big tree that hindered the view from one man's house! Silly stuff and the guy who did it should have known better and handled things with his neighbor better. The man who 'lost' - who acted without wisdom and good judgment - ran for a high political office just a few years before. Was I ever glad he lost! It was obvious he was just into everything for himself! Enjoy your experience, dear friend.

  10. Oh no I missed your moving again? I have been busy with my family reunion. Jury duty..my last one was a murder trial and we convicted him and they let us out at 3am. I hope yours is more simple!

  11. I've been on jury duty many times, it is an interesting experience, but always comes at the wrong time!
    Good luck on the move, hope the trail wraps up quickly!

  12. Love the blue and white bottles and they look so pretty in your little china cabinet. I've never been called for Jury Duty and I've been a registered voter all my life. Oh well! Good Luck and so much excitement about another move. Happy Dance for you!
    hugs,

  13. Very pretty, Shelia! I know you couldn't resist. They are so pretty and you can hardly notice the problem with the one topper. I think you resolved that beautifully. I haven't been to the thrift store in awhile now. I should go. Watch, I won't find a thing!

  14. What kind of trial is it? If it's a biggie, you might not be going anywhere in two weeks!

  16. They look lovely in your dresser! Gosh, you are going to be busy, moving in 2 weeks and doing jury duty!! How on earth are you going to fit all that it! Your husband will be kept very busy getting things ready. I hope that it all goes really well - jury and moving - and that you can get everything done. I look forward to hearing from you when it is all done! xx

    Hope jury duty goes quick. Take care in your process and packing to move. Lots going on for you and all so very exciting.
    Hugs and Blessings~

  18. Always fun to find a treasure that speaks to you. I had a bit of luck at a recent estate sale…..tartan ware at reasonable prices. ;-)

  20. They are lovely. I love finding stuff like that and I have to bring them home. I tell my husband I had no choice. They were yelling and screaming at me to buy them. What's a girl to do?

  21. LOVE them!!!!! A LOT! I mean after all Sheila...you was just merely browsing right? And then you heard a small voice coming from somewhere saying....Look at me...look at me! Then the Oil bottle said, Please take me home with you and can you take my friend too...the Vinegar bottle! LOL! Hugs and blessings, Cindy
