I really like the three matching ones on the top shelf, but since it is highly unlikely to find a deal like that again, I'm perfectly happy to be looking for spice jars that do NOT match.
So I bought the one on the middle shelf and to the far right.
Cloves. I do love cloves.
I can see that I have to balance out the color on these shelves a bit, but it sure does look like the blue swan is "at home" on my breeze-way.

The thrift shopping hasn't been the greatest for me lately. Not that I'm putting a great deal of effort into it. But I was thrilled to find eight Johnson Brother's Snowhite Regency saucers for 25 cents a piece. My plan is to make them into cupcake stands. I've got at least eight glass candle sticks I can glue them to. And, they will match my china!

It was priced WAY too high.
Two weeks ago I found this Bailey's creamer, and it was priced just right.
Now I shall be on the look-out for a Bailey's sugar bowl.
My favorite thing about these? When I take a picture of them my camera asks, "Did someone blink?"
Why yes, someone did.

Since I don't have a lot of room for anything more, I'm a bit more picky.
Recently I found the 'pepper' spice jar that is now on the center shelf. This was at an antique mall and the price was very good. After I bought it I found a bunch of similar spice jars for three times as much, so I think I did pretty good!
I also found a small tea pot with a small cup and saucer.
Of course, I shall be tweaking this shelf forever.
Amazingly how well-preserved these are.
Although these did not come in the original box, I already have two.
I love how old things look in glass jars. Don't you?
But I found her, and she looked like she would be happy to hold something for me in her sweet little basket.
I'm not sure what yet. Q-tips would be the obvious choice. But they are tempting to the little boys and I don't want them falling into the pretty pink toilet if they were to climb up to get some.
So most likely I shall fill her basket with lavender.
She has an honest face. I think I can trust her.
Hopefully, I'm back to updating this blog on a more regular basis. One CAN always hope.
