New Treasures and Additional Decorating

Here are some Anchor Hocking pieces I found over the weekend.  A creamer and covered sugar bowl, $2 for the set, an oblong bowl, 50 cents, and a round footed dish, also 50 cents!  The 4 wheat snack plates had no cups and were a great price at only $1 for all four plates!  The blessing in this ~ I picked up a box of extra cups for snack plates a few months back, and there are some that match these!

I can't remember the name of this pattern, but I have several pieces of this as well.  I have another dish just like this one but without the top - this one is in perfect condition!  Would you believe on 50 cents for this one, too?  It is footed and not one chip, nick, or crack!  It's beautiful!

I also picked up some extra punch cups for a punch bowl I bought a couple of sales back, a grape motif and in their own box!  $1!!

It's almost a joke now with my yard sale buddy ~ seems every week I find a punch bowl and cups!  Funny thing is, I'm beginning to build sets of this and that pattern and come up with quite large quantities!  Fun, fun!  Of course, my Sweetie always asks, "Another punch bowl?  What are you going to do will all of the punch bowls?"

Masks, Busts, Heads
Another Punch Bowl
I picked up a box of old Christmas ornaments and still haven't sorted through all of them.  These masks and heads, hand beaded ornaments and what looks like cut glass and sequins on metal birds are what I've found so far.  I must find them a home because it would be a shame to just keep them in a box!

Mrs. and Santa Claus
These are my two night lights, although not so little!  They stand 2'tall, and I just love them!

Thanks for taking a peak!  Tomorrow I start making cards!  Woo Hoo!  I love making them and thinking of the person who will receive them.  Would they like Snowmen, Santa, a Dove?  How about just words?  Peace, Love and Joy!  Merry Christmas!  Happy New Year!  Oh yes, one of each please!

Have a blessed week!  Stay warm, stay healthy!
