Hello to all readers of GLIMPSE OF MY WORLD.
and Valarie has asked that I do a guest post on her lovely blog.
I am a 73 year old grandmother of 10 and great-grandmother of 1.
I love thrifting with a passion...
just about anything that someone else has loved.

Like this old, metal display rack I bought for $5. from a store going out of business.
My hubby, MR. SWEET, kept asking "What the heck" the whole time
we were dragging it to his pickup.  :))
Once we got home with it, I painted it in the BEST black,
put tiles I already had on the top,
filled it with vintage locker room baskets..
a plate rack to hold my white plates..
more dishes..
a killer sign...
and I had a bakers rack for a mere Five Bucks..:)
I have an absolute PASSION for WHITE IRONSTONE..
especially lovin' little white pitchers...
here's a few from my collection.
I also LUV baking and do quite a lot of it...
I made homemade popovers the other day..
my very first
and now we're  HOOKED on them.:)
 I used to describe my decorating as
after I received this amazing book from my daughter,
I now call it
This is really an awesome book..if you get a chance to buy just one this year,
this is it.
 We love homemade biscuits...
and they are even better, cooked in a CAST IRON SKILLET.
Valarie, thank you so so much for the honor of appearing on your beautiful blog.
I appreciate it so much.
xoxo bj
