I was so happy last week when my friend Carol, from Old Glory Cottage informed me I had won her wonderful giveaway!
I needed something so positive to happen. Furthermore, the items were as if someone had picked them out personally for me!
So on to the table top!
Our kitchen table we had handmade by the Amish a few years ago.
We were looking for something for the kitchen that would not take up too much room but we would have enough room when we eat dinner.
We designed it with drop downs on both sides.
After we designed it I realized how very much it looks like my Grandparents table in the dining room!
I guess we stick with what we like!
And call me old but I still like oak for a 110 yr old house.
here is my package...how Carol got in all in the box???
cute little card
beautiful linen towel I may use as a runner
a match holder in perfect shape
adorable little red top salt and pepper shakers, sitting on top of another gorgeous vintage towel.
I do not know what is wrong with my camera....half of the pictures I took are missing, the battery keeps slipping and turns off my camera.....with me something does not work at all times!
Even a gorgeous vintage tablecloth...and to think I was drooling over some this weekend,
I wanted one so bad!
beautiful summer flowers
Now on to my flea market find.....a perfect match for the table.
A red Pyrex square bowl and 4 small bowls
The lady had the small bowls marked at $5 a piece, I wanted to buy the large bowl and 2 small, but she did not want to separate them? what? they are individually marked?
I was confused and said I would think about it?
We went on about our way.
So my friends and I discussed it since the large bowl was marked at $15 and each little bowl was $5
the entire set would be $35....I can not spend that right now.
So we all decided $25 was a good price for all the pieces.
I am a good spotter and have pretty good knowledge of things, Patty in the group is the schmoozer and talker, BUT Rhonda knows how to dicker and get the price she wants!
We make a good trio.
So Rhonda went back and forth with the lady, until she finally gave in and sold the set to us for $25!
$10 over my budget for the day and I still feel a little guilty.
I would never of thought that a year ago...but things change.
The large one is marked 525B
and the smaller ones 410 12oz
Rhonda got us a Pyrex book for reference
thinking this is what I got?
The book shows yellow, but is sure looks like my set?
All this is going to 1515
The things Carol so thoughtfully sent me will look good in here,
what do you think?
I start vacation a week from today and can't wait to get the kitchen all decorated.
Thanks so much Carol!
