odds 'n ends

Ain't she's a cutie! I love putting anything on a pedestal. So, that's just what I did, along with some pretty pins.

These are all IKEA containers except for the Berry Sugar Rim Trim container. The packaging was just too cool to throw away.

I am continually trying to creatively camouflage my boring sewing chair... and recently came up with this. I know, it's probably only temporary... but then again, it may stick. It's a pink vintage crinoline. I couldn't resist.

And finally, one of my favorite finds... the gravy boat or maybe it's a creamer. Anyway, I adore the design on the outside and the aqua on the inside just sealed the deal. Underneath it says Salem for 60 years ovenproof 58 U. Oh how I would love to find the other pieces to the set. And someday, I'm sure I will.

I love the petticoat on your sewing chair. I have made chair pockets for my students classroom and found that they will hold maybe the latest patterns or whatever project you're working on. PS> the pink cup with the bumpy goes with the dishes called ...crinolyn! It comes in pink and aqua. Love the gravy boat.

My sister and I were going through some dishes of our mothers. We found what I would call a serving plater that matches your gravy bowl/creamer. Do you have any other information on it. You can contact me at Thanks
