So, every few years I get the urge to treat myself to something really nice on my birthday. That often means heading to an antique store and choosing something I might not normally allow myself to get. This year, it was this ADORABLE tiered stand.

I'm looking forward to putting some fun Valentine's Day candies in it! Since it's still January, I resisted and decided to go with some vintage "Shiny-Brite" Christmas ornaments. They were a virtual (pardon the pun) steal on eBay. (I waited patiently as batches of them came and went. Then one day there were Shiny-Brites that no one seemed to like...but I thought they were cute. I pounced!)
Can you see the detail in the silverplate? I love it! And, that's why I decided it was the perfect gift. You see, it goes well with an antique silverplate vase that my sis gave me years ago.

I'll leave you with once last find. This is a non-antique - straight from the Pier One clearance section! This little wall hook will be perfect for...well, I'm not sure yet. But, I have a few ideas :)

Don't forget to enter my giveaway.
