I Survived The First Day of Summer Vacation!

Mostly in a blur of cold medicine. Not because that was the only medication in the house but because I have a summer cold. I hate colds. I do try to be as much of a pain in the butt as I can now that the kids can wait on me hand and foot.

Atleast Sheba was keeping was keeping an eye on them! I did manage to drag myself off my death bed to go to my sister's for the day. I helped her do some stuff that she needed help with. We also did a bit of shopping at her SA cause they get cool stuff there!

I got this cute little pitcher. More for the ironstone collection. I want to do something with it but don't know what yet.

I also got this silver water pitcher that needs some TLC. More polish to clean! Yeah! I found that I love to clean silver.

I also got this. I think it is a holder for a bottle of wine. It has some damage to it, but I am hoping that I can clean it up too. I tried a bottle of wine in it, but it tips over.

I also got a doughnut pan! I have been wanting one of these and couldn't pass it up for a couple of bucks. I am going to give it a whirl as soon as I feel a little better. I can't wait to see all the doughnuts combos that I can come up with this beauty. I have an awesome recipe that I will share with you next week. The secret ingredient is doughnuts!

Until then, enjoy your weekend!

I think the item you said is a bottle holder might be a sugar cube holder. I had one very very similar to that, it came with small silver prongs. You found some really nice things! Hope you're feeling better. xo,

My first guess (not that I know about these things though...) was a sugar holder too. Just looking at the first pic makes me tired! Hope you're feeling better soon Maggie:@)

Maggie, You shop good when you are under the weather! I love the silver. I think that one silver piece might be a sugar shuttle. But I can't tell the size. Anyway if wine fits in it then lets break open a bottle of a good red. OOOOppppps~ forgot you are taking cold meds. Oh well, I'll have a glass for you!
If we lived close by you know I'd bring Chicken Noodle Soup! Get better!

Yes, I's a sugar holder or scoop. Don't go trying wine in there again! LOL! :)

You did good on your SA finds...real good!

Sorry about the summer colds. Our weather is so cool today I feel like it's cold season again!

Maggie, I hope you are feeling much better by now. I like your silver items. The little ironstone pitcher is darling as well.
Blessings, Beth

Oh, I hate summer colds more than anything in the world! It just doesn't sound right! Wow, I need to come shopping there, I have never seen anything of this quality at our thrift shops! Your silver is all fantastic. I can see flowers or candy or nuts in the wine holder too - so ornate and gorgeous. Great shopping!

Hi Maggie,
So sorry to hear that you are a little poorly.....I'm a bit late with my comment so, you might be feeling a bit better now. .....although, it didn't seem to stop your purchasing skills at all !!!! haha
When I get back from my sister's, I might post a few more baby pics although, I don't think that many bloggers like that sort of post !!
Here's to feeling better and lots of eating and drinking....and get that doughnut pan in action !! XXXX

Summer colds are the worst! You snagged some great finds tho. You know what it means if the wine bottle doesn't fit don't you? It means you HAVE to drink the wine!! LOL
Have a great week!
