Fairy Hobmother and More Books

I told you last week that I had a surprise visit from the Fairy Hobmother and she left me a gift certificate to Amazon.  Well, of course I just had to shop and find something wonderful with such a fabulous gift.  My treasure came in the mail, and I am thrilled.



Look at this wonderful cake plate and cover.  I love the scroll work and the gorgeous rusty color.


 Such a beautiful knob on the top of the glass cover.



Very pretty scroll work on the skirt of the cake plate and the base.


Then while out running errands I stopped at the Thrift store again to see if they still had a couple of pillows that I saw and didn't pick up, but no they were gone.  Of course I had to look around and they had more of the books to the series that I got the other day.  She said they lady brought these in after she brought the first ones.  So of course, I had to get them too.  Can't not have the whole series, right?



 The gold detail on all of them is so pretty.  I am thrilled to have these added to my collection.  Again they were only $3 each.

So all in all a great day with my new books and my fabulous new cakeplate.

Such a fun piece and what a special gift from the Fairy Hobmother. Has she visited you?

  26. OH gosh that is gorgeous Marty!
    How does one go about getting visited by a fairynob mother anyway?
    And your post on your master bedroom is gorgeous! I just love that room, it's warm, cozy and simply beautiful!
    Is it still hot out there?
    We've been quite cool with highs in the 60's and the leaves are turning quickly!
