                         Instrument makers tools, the pen gives a good indication of size.
                                        The tiniest plane ever...such a cutie.
  And the winner of my little Murano give away is the lovely Brismod  from Fun and VJ's. Brismod was very lucky to score two extra entires which were given to her by the lovely Liz at Nostalgia and Now so she may have had an edge. Because Liz was so generous I thought she deserved something too. So Liz I will be contacting you aswell to send a little treasure your way too. I hope you all had a good weekend. Thanks so much for entering the giveway I hope to have another one not too far away.


  1. I love the Bakewell mixing bowl. And if I was any sort of cook, I'd be shaking those maracas while, whatever the hell it was that I mixed, was baking.

    When I was a boarder (at boarding school) I found a Bakewell jug in the showers. Yes. I don't know what it was doing there either. Anyway, I left a note for the resident Nuns informing them that I'd found a Bakewell jug in the showers, and if they wanted it back, they could find me. No one sought me, so the Bakewell jug and I have been happily cohabiting in a jug/jug user-way since.

    Congrats Brismod! Worthy home for the purple Italian vase.

  2. I would love your job Katherine, going though all of those boxes and all of that stuff.

    Congrats to Brismod!
