New Frenchy Treasures

Don't you get excited when a package comes in the mail.   I do!!!!!  I have a very special friend that lives half way across the country, and she is so sweet to always think of me when she sees something that she thinks I would like.  Well a package came in the mail this week from her and I was squealing with delight. 


Look at this tiny little silver goblet filled with the most precious little nest and egg.  It is so perfect with my island vignette and next to my little lamb.


 How precious is this!!!!  I love this lady so much and she is such a dear friend and one of the most thoughtful people in the whole world.


 I also made a trip to GW this week and I think I need an intervention.  I just can't pass up a pretty tray.  This gorgeous one is so detailed and for $4 it was a real steal.


 Look at those pretty feet.  A footed tray is always so elegant looking.


 This little tankard also caught my attention.  Such a pretty handle.  This lovely piece was only $3.


 I was thrilled when I saw this wonderful frenchy tin.  Love the rusty color and all that patina, fabulous.  The scalloped design on the top is gorgeous.  Can't you just see a bunch of sunflowers or lilacs spilling out.  $4 is a real bargain I think.


Thanks so much for stopping by, I always look forward to your visits.

    I love all your finds! Like you, I cannot say "no" to a silver tray! I use them as chargers at the dining table. Each one is different. I love that look!

  21. Marty, LOL I think if we went shopping together we'd be "fighting" over the same treasure. I just bought another silver tray at GW too. I love that yours has little feet.

  25. The silver goblet is a sweet gift. How thoughtful of your friend.

    I love silver trays and I've never seen one for under $50.00. I can't believe you scored it for $4.

    The tankard is nice and fancy.

    I'm sure you will have the 'frenchy tin' filled with flowers in no time.

  27. Marty,
    Thoughtful friends are the "Wind Beneath Our Wings", indeed. I'm sure she is tickled that her gift thrilled you so! Darling little nest!!!
    That tray is absolutely gorgeous and a bargain...I can only imagine! Our GW wants $24 for an old silver tray that has lost it's silver and no feet! Get real, people! Your other finds are delightful...can't wait for you to showcase them in an upcoming post!
    Fondly,
    Pat

  28. What wonderful treasures Marty. Your friend is so sweet to send you little treasures your way! I got a package today but it was supplements- not near as fun!

    I LOVE your sweet lamb!! While on our trip I went a looking for sweet little lambs and sheep to add to my very small collection. Found one very small 1/2 inch size chalkware lamb with a big price tag of $22!!! I almost choked when I saw the price!! Well I found a cute new little one at the Tillamook cheese Factory for $2 which was more my liking!!

    bee blessed

  34. You have the best GW ever. I love trays with feet! I went to a GW in Dublin, Ga. today and bought a tank top...haha. There may be a glimmer of hope as we might go to GW in Buckhead in Atlanta on Sunday which is supposed to be awesome. I hope we can work that out.

  35. How sweet when friends send a "thinking of you" gift for no reason! Just makes your day, doesn't it? You find the best things at GW. I never seem to have any luck at the nearest ones to me. Must be the area I live in. People have nothing but junk around here! LOL! Enjoy your weekend!

  59. Hi Marty! I can't believe I missed this post. Look at all your pretties! I love them. The nest cup is darling!
    Yes, we do have the same cloche. Somehow in it's dark state, I only used it around the Fall. I really like the lighter look.
    Be a sweetie,
