I am getting adicted to going to a local auction. It is fun to see the variation of what items go for what amounts of $$..and how that can vary from week to week. This week there were only about half the amount of the usual crowd..so great deals were at hand. Are you ready??? I spent a total of $58.00 and this is what I came home with:
Four beautiful Bovaria china double handled cups and saucers.
This was an amazing find for me. My Grandmother used to have a set of these and I wish I had hers...but second best was finding these. Let me explain...When I was young, I used to go to my Grandmother's house and help her make these amazing tea sandwiches. She was a member of the Eastern Star and when they had tea's, they always requested her sandwiches. She would cut the bread with flower shaped cookie cutters and then cut a circle out in the center of the flower. In that center she would cut olives or red pimento with these tiny cutters. The sandwiches were a work of art in themselves!
This sterling silver, mother of pearl and peridot pendant..
..also can be worn as a pin.
This etched vase has a sterling silver base!
