Perfect Pair of Napkin Rings & 'Just Ducky!'

Oh boy, DH made a trip today to Menards so I tagged along to get dropped off at TJMaxx .... then we stopped to buy lunch to take home & it would take 25 min. til, guess what, GWill shop a couple doors down! Here's my finds in 25 min...

Brass Duck Bookends ...very heavy duty & a bargain for $5...good for my books & good for t'scaping!

Brass Duck Bookend 11.10

And, then I spotted these cute little "quack-ers!"

Ducks Polish S&P Shakers 11.10

I thought they were quite unique cause the ducks are one piece S&P shakers...on the back side in faint writing are two words: Poland & Anna so I pd $1.75 for them. They'll probably end up on Dollybaby's tray one of these days!

And the last "perfect" find (for me) was a pair of napkin rings made with shells & coral ... the salmon color struck my fancy because of the recent collection I've started of Woodfield Stubenville "Toast & Tea" plate & cups...I stood one up by candle on Fall display on porch:

Shell Napkin Rings 11.10

Can you believe each of those shells & pcs have small hole in them & are "strung" with wire on a metal ring...I thought they were the pair for $1.

Ok, I'll share my other finds on a separate post. TFlookin'! Jeanne S.

Oh, I forgot ... a few wks ago I got this pine branch pitcher at the same GW for $3.50...I'll use it for winter & "pines" just call to me! (jeannespines) Markings on the bottom is just a label that says "distributed by Target"..microwave & dishwasher safe.

Nice finds, Jeanne. The bookends are wonderful and look brand new. Thanks for letting us in on the ducks who are stuck, together that is. They would be perfect for Dollbaby's tray.

The shell napkin rings are perfect with your dishes. Hope you can find some more of them during your shopping sprees. Love your new Pine Branch Pitcher. That will go with alot of your decorations. Wouldn't Lynn love that to go on her table with the pinecone dishes?

You are having so much fun out shopping and finding some really great things. I'm so happy for you!


RE: Perfect Pair of Napkin Rings & 'Just Ducky!'

Way to go Gal, tag along and get in some good shopping too. Great buys, and the ducks and napkin rings are unusual and really neat. Bookends always come in handy, and your's sure look to be in great condition. Good find on the pitcher too. Yes, you have sure had some good "treasure shopping" days lately. Good for you! ;o)


RE: Perfect Pair of Napkin Rings & 'Just Ducky!'

Jeanne, I love your napkin rings and the color is so perfect with your dishes! I'm silently coveting the pitcher and the S/P ducks.

RE: Perfect Pair of Napkin Rings & 'Just Ducky!'

What Punk for me too.
Boy, you sure know how to put 25 min. to good use! I can't believe the haul you made.

Congratulations and hugs,

RE: Perfect Pair of Napkin Rings & 'Just Ducky!'

Well Jeanne...I read your other post now my question in that post has been answered!...yes your cute
duckies ARE S&Ps !! lol
I LOVE that green Pine Branch Pitcher >>> and What-A-Great Price...boy you found some nice things..
I'm imagining the person who made those nap rings...It's amazing the detail that goes into some things and you know that person (probably from some island) got paid next to nothing for it...then the Seller makes a huge profit on it. In your case, you were lucky getting them 'second time around' and got a great deal. They're very pretty.


RE: Perfect Pair of Napkin Rings & 'Just Ducky!'

Jeanne, Great finds, you really lucked out
the duck salt and pepper shakers are adorable.

RE: Perfect Pair of Napkin Rings & 'Just Ducky!'

Great finds!
We don't have Menards or CTS : (, but it is very convenient that you have a GW so close to your lunch stop.

You did great for 25 min. Imagine what you could have found if you had more time, LOL.


RE: Perfect Pair of Napkin Rings & 'Just Ducky!'

All of the ducks are great!!!, but I love the pitcher...
That will be beautiful with Christmas greens and maybe a bow on the handle???
You had a great day/s :^)
