They Know what I like!

 For Christmas this year there were things I received that were so me.  My daughter knows how much I like shiny silver vintage items, so when she found this beautiful Silver Platter at an estate sale, she picked it up for me for my gift.
 It is quite a heavy piece, and it sits up on 4 pedestals.
 I found a great place to show it off on this shelf.
I received this little metal beauty from my Son and daughter-in-law.  And I am sure I found the perfect spot for it!  I could not be more pleased.
 My good friend and also my daughter's mother-in-law gave me 5 very old ornaments.  As I looked at each one of them, tickled to death, she explained from what era each one came from.  The above one I believe came from the early 1930's
 This one is from the early days in the 1900's
 This little bird is made of paper mache'  and is hollow.  The head comes off to reveal a place for small toys or candy.  She said this one came from the 1930's  It is covered with old fashioned glitter.
 This little glass ornament is probably from the 20's and the one below is also early 1900's  Notice the very old tinsel.
I thank them all for the perfect little vintage gifts.  They mean so much, because I know there was lots of thought gone into these gifts.

Your gifts are so pretty and thoughtful. I love it when people pay attention to what we really love. Have a great 2013!

This design is incredible! You most certainly know how to keep
a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost
moved to start my own blog (well, almost...HaHa!) Great job.

I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that,
how you presented it. Too cool!

It's nearly impossible to find knowledgeable people on this subject, however, you sound like you know what you're talking about!

What beautiful gifts, and those ornaments are fantastic. If only I could talk my family into shopping thrifts, fleas, and antiques!
