Good Finds

My dear Sister in Law came for a visit and we toured the area for some general antiquing. We both found some great deals at an antiques mall. I fell in love with the cruet set. The silver base is really nice and I am going to find some new liners or something to fit in them. The original bottles are chipped and the stoppers aren't original, but they are still useable in another life. It will eventually hold smalls on my worktable.
The black amethyst pieces were my horray, happy dance purchase. All of them were super good prices and I found them all in the same mall. That is a real shocker, because these pieces are getting harder for me to find . The silver ice bucket was a real score also and the original glass liner was still intact and in terrific condition. I actually may use it too. I love the little sugar bowl and I think I have a small juice pitcher that will match it. Now to find the creamer...another junkin trip around the corner perhaps!
As I was trying to escape without another handful of stuff, I spied this little vinegar and oil set. It tied my white milk glass collection and my black amethyst together quite well. We definitely closed down the place that afternoon and had a terrific time.

Lurking is one of my favorite "piddling" things to do! And your blog is a great place to lurk. You did score big on you shopping trip - love those cruets!
