This is my first time participating in Diane's A picture is worth a 1,000 wordsI really want to learn how to smock. I had a tiny lesson months ago while I was in Statesboro Ga working on their new Hobby Lobby... remember that? It seems like a lifetime ago! So imagine my surprise and delight when I found this Amanda Jane 24 needle pleater in my favorite local antique shop. I couldn't believe the price! Only $15 !!! What a steal!
Years ago as a young military wife I tried to collect Princess House crystal but sadly my family budget didn't allow for many purchases. I have a chip n dip bowl, trifle bowl, and a set of brandy sniffers... Now I have a crystal ice bucket! Found at the same antique shop in it's original box with plastic tongs for $10 !!!
Isn't it pretty? I just love it. I have it boxed up because I learned my lesson with crystal when fat Miz Sissy-kitty single pawed destoyed 7 of my 8 antique stemmed dessert cups. I can still remember the unmistakeable sound of shattering crystal, it tinkles very pretty!
Thank you for visiting me and allowing me to show off my bargains!
I adore giving a new home to old treasures
