For all the years I've been going to estate sales and auctions, this is one of my favorite finds ever: a Jadite grease jar with a tulip-patterned lid, sitting unnoticed in a kitchen cupboard, with a $1 price tag.
I don't remember the particular outing, but apparently sometime over the past few months, Mr. Oodles and I were out and about, and I saw something similar to this. And apparently I commented on it. I wish I remembered the occasion, but it probably would not surprise you to learn that while I am out and about viewing vintage items, the words "Oh, I love that!" are uttered on a fairly regular basis.
So when I opened my gift from Mr. Oodles on Christmas, I was shocked to see these. "How did you know I wanted these?" I asked. "Because you said you loved them but you would never buy them for yourself," he said. "So I decided I'd get them for you for Christmas."
My favorite estate sale find, accompanied by my favorite Christmas gift ever.
Oh, but Mr. Oodles wasn't done, because he bought me jewelry!
And just the kind I like.
The old kind.
And the even older kind.
Thanks, Mr. Oodles.
