My obsession is growing.......

for milk glass that is!  It all started last year when I was plundering inside Papa's old workshop.  As I was digging through a box, I ran across 3 pedestal candy dishes and immediately fell in love with them.  I had been looking for something to sit on my desk to hold small embellishments like buttons and brads and knew these would be perfect!.  So I lugged them home (against my husbands wishes) cleaned them up and filled them with my small collection of washi tape instead. 

I heart these so much!  Since then I've been scouring consignment stores and Habitat for Humanity stores for more and I've been lucky enough to pick up a piece here and there. This past Thursday while I was in Hartsville, I stopped by the Habitat store and found another footed candy dish (on top) and 3 pieces of Currier & Ives - 2 square casseroles and a custard cup.....

all for a mere $7.25!  Did I mention I have an obsession for Pyrex dishes too?  Well I do.  When my son moved next door last year I gave him all my clear casserole dishes and replaced them with vintage Pyrex and Anchor Hocking pieces.  Do you have an obsession?  If so, leave a comment and tell what it is.

Do you know what time it is???

It's use your stash month all month long over at Cookin' Up Creations!  That's right, you don't have to have the latest and greatest to participate.  The goal is to make room for new goodies.....and the only way to do that is to use up some of those old supplies that you may have been hoarding, forgot you had or just never got around to using.  Whatever the reason, come join me over at CUC and let's see just how much stash we can use up in January!    

Happy New Year!!!

Wow, it seems 2012 flew by and here we are at the beginning of a brand new year with brand new goals.  This year I decided not to make any new years resolutions.  I always seem to fail after a few short months anyway so I thought why set myself up for disappointment.  This year I am going to LIVE and enjoy life to the fullest!  So come on 2013, let's see what you got!
