A Cake Plate and Found Treasures

I was looking quickly around the house (on my lunch break)to see what I could put in my next post and wanted to show glass cake plates that was my Mom's but where are they? Which cabinet did I put them in ?

I found one in the cabinet in my living room and thought where did I put the rest when I was moving things over to put out Christmas decorations. Oh well I will find them someday when I am not looking for them. I looked in the guest bedroom on the dresser and I was sure I would have set them there but not there.
I will show the one I found and a few pretties that was in the drawers I was digging through .

This is the only cake plate that was available for today's showing
This cake cover I just love with the sweet silhouettes . I bought it on my trip down south last October I think I found it was in Georgia at an antique mall. It has a glass plate bottom.
   This one I bought also on the trip then got it home and thought it was a little banged up looking but it looks good setting upon my shabby chippy cabinet. I like the little red button closure.                                                                      

I have been wanting to make a strawberry cake and will have to use this plate for sure.
 This little heart shaped hinged Limoges box I bought in Portland Oregon down on Pioneer square in a shop.  It was on sale like 1/2 of 1/2 had to have it.

I had to put a few of my lovely beautiful fancy charming Tiara's on this post also. I just love them.
While I was in drawers in a little chest I found this paper fan

These sweet little swan lipstick holders was a gift  to me a couple years ago. They came from an estate sale in Portland Oregon

 I got  this pot of paper whites after Christmas at Target $5.00 It's so nice to have growning flowers in the house
I wanted to show this little painting I got at a flea market a couple years ago It was down on the book case bottom shelf with lots of my beautiful books also the painting goes vertical instead of horizontal.

Look over on Faded Charm for White Wednesday she always has the most beautiful posts and visitors.
