Fun Finds...

Time to share some fun finds!  Isn't this old milk glass plate a piece of prettiness?  It's from Challinor Taylor, circa the sweet apple blossoms...

and the beautiful lattice edge.

Baskets are always a fun much you can do with them!

I was particularly happy to find the paper plate holders!  They are the perfect size to place under a glass cloche...

And I found a nice lot of mid 60's lettering stencils...

So me, they are each a piece of art, ready to display!

Such a fun industrial vibe...

I am joining Debra at Common Ground for 

Until next time...have a wonderful weekend!

  15. That pretty little plate is perfect for a spring display. I can't believe it's that old! I would never have thought to use a wicker plate holder under a cloche, but I think I'm going to borrow your wonderful idea!

  19. Hi Linda! That little plate is so lovely! The edging is delicate and it reminds me of a glass doily.
    The paperplate holders...under a cloche?! Wonderful idea.
    AND I thought they were perfect just for holding a paper plate...complete with a chili dog and chips! :)

  20. I love old milk glass too. That rusty old stencil graphic is very cool.

  21. Wow, what great finds. I never thought about using the basket paper plate holders for glass cloches. What a great idea.

  22. Great finds Linda.... you are going to have such fun with those stencils!

  23. Oh yeah. Those stencils have the look alright. They are on the right paper. I have a milk glass compote with that lattice edge that I love so of course I love yours too! I sure hope you were born in your part of the country and are all used to it. It would just kill me. My brother in law comes from Minnesota. Enjoy your snow! Haha!

  24. Thst plate is just so beautiful!

  25. Hi Linda,
    The milk glass plate looks to also be in mint condition how fortunate for you to find such a perfect treasure. I so remember those paper plate woven basket holders we had plenty of those around our home for entertaining. It's always fun visiting you, you never know what you will next find that brings back memories of old :)

    Thank you dearly for gracing your beauty over at my place, and leaving a comment that encourages blogging.
    See you and your beauty soon.
