I wasn't going to participate in Vintage Thingy Thursday, but Molly went to "Not Necessarily New" today and brought me a present!
So, although it's Friday, I had to share her fun find!
For only $1.00, she brought me this lovely tiered hand-painted china server.
But what's this????
Someone smeared tacky gold paint on the plates.
Molly paid a dollar for this??? It should have been a quarter. But it's still kinda cute.
I guess I'll clean it up a bit.
It's really filthy--probably in someone's garage......
Well, lookee there!
That nasty gold paint scrubbed right off and hidden below it says "Nell and C.B. 1907-1957."
How sweet is that?
Buried Treasure covered in Fool's Gold!
It's beautiful now!
I think she got a bargain.
I'd have paid--
oh, heck, at least $5.00 for it!
