it makes me so sad to see so many items on your blog that my Grandma use to have. We got rid of almost everything "good" before i realized it was good!... My gram will be 100 7/21 so you can imagine all the vintage goodies that were in her house (she moved to an apt.)...
love your blog!

Oh my lucky you winning the give away, that must be why you are having one, you know what an awesome feeling it is to win one... Those seashelll nutcups are sooo cute, I have been admiring a set of utensils at my local antique store made with hand painted seashells. They just keep saying to me buy them, but I keep abstaining. The colorful plastic backets are sooo cute, the colors are TO DIE FOR... Lucky you... Enjoy all your special treasures. Creatively yours, Tammie Moore
