About Me

My photo
My passion is decorating with vintage and antique finds on a budget. There was a time when I wouldn't have dreamed of going into a goodwill. That day has passed. :) My second love is scrapbooking all those special family moments for posterity, and I recently set up my very own scrapbooking room. I have three beautiful children, two sons and a daughter as well as a sweet (albeit full blooded Yankee) daughter-in-law and two grandgirls. I also enjoy gardening, meeting new friends and relaxing on my patio in the evenings with a glass of fine wine. During the summer of 2001, I spent two glorious weeks at Kennedy Space Center. I've been somewhat of a space geek ever since....

A Treasure of a Bargain

The pace of my summer has slowed down just a tad and I stopped by two thrift shops this week, Here Today, Gone Tomorrow on Monday and Goodwill on Wednesday. There was NOTHING of interest on Monday but on Wednesday I found this silverplated pie server and pyrex pie plate.... It was heavily tarnished but nothing that a little silver cream wouldn't take care of. I'm linking with The Shabby Chic Cottage to share my treasure. I flipped it over to see what the price was..... Someone went wild with the pricing gadget for sure.... Doubleclick to see the absolute STEAL it was.....

Yep, you read it right..... $1.99!!!!! Talk about a bargain, huh? I snapped that baby up. Saw a funny sight just down the aisle.... A white wooden wedding frame decorated with silver wedding bells with the wedding picture still in it!!! Guess those two must have divorced cause somebody sure didn't want that picture on display.... Somewhere there is a woman who has NO IDEA that her wedding picture is sitting out on display at the thrift store! LOL

Here is the pie server all cleaned and polished up. I think I really scored, don't you? If I weren't being totally lazy this evening, I'd bake up a nice pie in it. OH, WELL..... :)

What type of pie do you think would taste best in it????????? Leave me a comment; I'd love to hear from y'all.......


  1. Great find! I love silver and have found some pieces for really good prices.

  2. I think you should bake a fresh blueberry pie!

  3. I love silver pieces and have found quite a few a GW. Nice to stumble across them. You can use this for so many things.
