One Dollar Each

Hello, Dear Ones! Hope you all are staying warm as I see so many of you are getting lots of snow!! :)

I wanted to share some tiny little bargains I got not long ago. These pieces were old, I could tell, and tarnished. But that didn't scare me away!! No no Nannette! Not one bit!

One of the thrills...I picked them up for $1 each! Woo Hooness for me!! :)

I'll start with this pair. They're not the same pattern and have no markings on them. Do I care? Nope, I mean, no no Nannette! :)

Look at the pretty server. Isn't she pretty? She must be pretty old as she didn't shine up as well as I would have liked. But, hey, I love her and she'll work out just fine.

Now look at this gorgeous large fork! She shined up just beautifully!! I'll enjoy poking things with this!! :)

Then I found these two little twinkie pick up thingys!!

Look at the pretty design on them. They didn't shine up a bit. I really don't care. I'll be picking up little petit fours and all kinds of little bitty tiny dainty things to eat with these! :)

Just look at the gorgeouness of handle! Very birdlike, I think! :)

Pretty, huh? I love these too!


I just had to poke in some clear depression glass to set up a little vignette. An olden plate and an olden bowl. Just try to imagine dainty tasties in these dishes that were served with my new olden silver plated pieces.

I'm also showing you one of my favorite cake stands.

See? She's very pretty and very happy to be in the vignette with all the olden silver plated pieces.

She has such a nice figure even though she's very often filled up with nice little fattening dainty tasties! :) She reminds me of myself - I'm often filled up with nice little fattening dainty tasties myself. Well, my figure's a little on the fluffy side. Just sayin'... :)

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia :)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Pretty Woman
Pretty woman walkin' down the street
Pretty woman, the kind I like to meet
Pretty woman, I don't believe you
You're not the truth
No one could look as good as you
Pretty woman, won't you pardon me
Pretty woman, I couldn't help but see

Pretty woman, and you look lovely as can be
Are you lonely just like me
Pretty woman, stop a while
Pretty woman, talk a while

Pretty woman, give your smile to me
Pretty woman, yeah, yeah, yeah

Pretty woman, look my way
Pretty woman, say you'll stay with me
Cause I need you
I'll treat you right

Come with me baby
Be mine tonight
Pretty woman, don't walk on by
Pretty woman, don't make me cry

Pretty woman, don't walk away
If that's the way it must be, OK
I guess I'll go on home, it's late

There'll be tomorrow night
But wait, what do I see?
Is she walking back to me?
Yeah, she's walking back to me
O-Oh Pretty woman.
