Most of my treasures come in ones - found little pretty things when I go on hunts. That one is so sweet, I bet you'll find a good place for it very soon.

Hello sweet Koralee! I love your pretty little salt shaker! I have rescued a lone one before too and it has a lovely rose on it as well. Like you, I wanted to give it a good home! Yours is so sweet and I love your quote!!! That is so true sweetie! Recently I rescued a sweet old little teddy bear. He is worn for wear but is still very dapper looking! Have a lovely day!

She's so sweet! I could just picture her filled with sugar and cinnamon to sprinkle on my toast in the morning. She'd be sitting close to my cuppa cocoa! :)

I love unique items like this! It adds character & heart to a table// home. I have a beautiful perfume holder that my husband brought back fro Egypt. It's purple and adorned with gold. It's filled with papyrus oil now, just a drop goes a long way... it's a special treasure on my bureau.

hi Koralee,

Such a pretty little treasure, and yes, always lovely to bring something like this home.
Also your sweet treat in the last post, is so worth falling off the wagon for! ... looks very yummy.

Happy weekend, dear friend

my little treasures were overtaking so i forced myself to scale back! i am thinking that when all of my children leave the nest there will be lots of room for more! this little one of yours is too sweet ... and is perfect for you and your collection of beautiful things!

Hi Koralee!
Oh I think blogger ate up my original comment! If this is a repeat, please use my first one!

I have some sweet lil' treasures that "needed me" to take them home too.
One of my favorite ones is a pretty sky blue vintage sugar bowl that sits atop a stack of my pink dessert plates. They are all tucked in behind the glass doors of my vintage secretary.
Your salt shaker is so, so beautiful. It's now in the home of a sweet lady ♥
Happy Thursday, Koralee & have a wonderful TGIF kind of day tomorrow!
Blessings and Joy to you always,

I posted today about the very same thing....orphan bone china tea cups.....they have no Mr. Saucer anymore....

and I've turned them into pretty tea cup pin cushions using some of my handmade crochet doilies! You simply have to come and see for yourself! ....

March Break has officially started here....oh a welcome break in the everyday regular routine of life! I just might stay in my PJ's all week!

What a sweet looking treasure you rescued Koralee! I rescued a soup terrine with little pink and grey flowers last Monday. It looks really sweet. I think I will take it to my garden and fill it with pink violets :-)

Happy weekend!

Much love,

Madelief xox

Monica said...

I love that you thought of rescuing this pretty little shaker .... I would have done the same thing :) Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Gloria said...

Sweet Koralee,

That little treasure would cry out to me, ..."pleeeeeeease rescue me!" too!...:)

SO adorably sweet!!!

I have been trying to give away some of my wee little treasures to loved ones and needy ones. So I haven't rescued anything lately.

Happy weekend to you!!

p.s Thank you so much for your words of encouragement over on my blog. They are a pleasure to read! said...

So glad you could give that sweet salt shaker a forever home. I'm sure she will be happy. She's adorable!

I would love to have a gigantic piece of land, and rescue treasures in the form of animals!

LOVE this little treasure! Sometimes it's OK to be a Lone Ranger...especially if you are cute and perky!
Have a great day!

Vicki said...

Hi, Koralee,
I am sure that sweet salt shake is happy to have found your home. I, too, have a thing for salt and peppers especially if they are delicately painted with roses. Hope your weekend has been a good one~ Blessings, Vicki

Libbie said...

One thing I miss (having so many little boys) is antique shoping...oh how I miss finding those treasures....but if I walked into a shop with my kids in tow...I would give ANY shop owner a heart attack!
and even without them along...I know that what ever I pick up will end up being flushed down the toilet, smashed to bits, or defaced with a sharpie....actually bo is growing up & he is behind a lot of I might have a fifty fifty chance of a treasure surviving....but then there is Roo & I haven't figure out yet if he is the sneaky kind yet :)

Your treasure makes me wish... :)
