Pearls and Lace, My Favorites!

Pearls and Lace Thursday #43 and Giveaway Continues!!!

I fell in love with Silver all over again when I saw this little tray/bowl...
ribbon, flowers, heart-shaped, so sweet, and I just held it close and let it know it had a new home!!

I also found some LOVELY spoons to add to my growing collection of silver spoons.

This is the newest set, 6 spoons with a Grape pattern on them, from Rogers Bros.  I couldn't locate the pattern with a certainty to find out the name...anyone know?

A pair of shell cufflinks I found a month or so ago...

Pearl glass beads...hollow and light-weight.  They are so gorgeous.
And the old wooden paddles are a recent find as well.  There are fibers still enmeshed in the brush!
Now the old rhinestone necklace is going to be added to the box of my Spring Giveaway items!!!
You might want to check out the Giveaway here so that you can join in!!

I usually try to stay true to the 'Vintage' or 'Antique' finds when I'm shopping lately, but I saw this swag of roses that have been made to look shabby, and well, I couldn't let that pass now could I???
And the platter below is one of a number of platters I found at a dear ladie's sale.  Gorgeous pink and green, beautiful edging, just my style!

This serving piece is unique...
It says on the FRONT, 'Hilton Coffee Shop', and on the
BACK it says Huey and Phlp Berkley
Looks like a sugar spoon....
I wonder...did it sell from their Coffee Shop back when, or did some well dressed lady 'stash' it in her muff to carry away with her???  I don't even remember where I found it now, but I only just today realized it had this on the front!!

I hate to iron, but wanted to starch this little doily so that I could use it in my Pearls and Lace Thursday Post today.  I also have a huge pile of linens to starch, including some recently posted napkins that need a lot of attention! 
Be sure and check out the Giveaway I'm having, and I've added some doily medallions already, as well as today's rhinestone necklace.  I don't know how big the box is going to be yet, so be sure and stay tuned!
Remember, it ends on May 10th!!

Details are located on the Giveaway post here, and you can also earn another chance to win by joining me here this week as well as at the Giveaway Party with your own URL to your Blog Post.  We love looking at your beauties, pearls or lace, rhinestones or treasures, please join me and then hop over to the other participants.

It doesn't get any better than this...old lace, silver, and pearls. Be still my heart!

Dear Doni... I love old Silverware too and it holds up so much better than modern flatware. I'm going to find ornate Vintage Silver Plated Serving Trays and paint the interior with chalkboard paint for the G-Kids to use as Art Boards and to also use at Yard Sales to put my pricing on.

The heart shaped silver bowl and spoons were a wonderful find!! I love their patina, polished or not. (at my house, it's more likely not.)

Beautiful Collection, I Love the Spoons & that little dish is Sweet... stop by and see My Friday post, I turned My Mom's Rhinestone necklace like that into a Tiara that My Daughter wore for her wedding in 2002...

Niki Fretwell said...

Hi Doni,
THANK YOU for your kind and generous comment on my blog...I was quite overwhelmed when I read it! It seems such a long time that I first started writing my blog, but then again, time flies and it has brought me new friends and a new outlook on life...It makes you see things differently, I think, when you are looking for your next blogging opportunity during every new day.

I bought some little silver spoons this week too. And a lady who visited my shop last week asked if I had any carding paddles...I hadn't ever seen any, and then I visit you, and there are some sitting amongst your latest finds! Fabulous!

Have a great week,
Niki :)
