Some New Pieces for Me

I went cruising through the Antique Mall last week, just looking, of course!  Then I found a couple (3) things that had to come home with me...Now as I look back, I think I bought myself an early birthday present, how does that sound?  It works for me..I saw this gorgeous footed cake plate and it jumped into my hands so I petted it and brought it home. It has a "lace edge" on it and when it's upright you can see the hole in the middle of it. I really don't know why it's there so if anyone has a clue about that, could you let me know.  All I can think to use it for, is maybe a candle??

See the hole, it's pretty good size..

 When it's turned upside down, I think it could be used as a serving piece and then the stem could hold some sauce. Maybe like shrimp and sauce? I don't know, I'm just thinking, I guess.
Then I purchased these candlesticks,,,they are just so pretty. I love the bottoms and think they will be a good press for my sugar cookies, I must try that real soon!! 


  1. You could use the cake stand for flowers too. Love your beautiful "finds".

  2. Wonderful finds. I have four cake stands and none have the hole in the center.
    You have more options with yours! How fun!

    1. I did a little research and found that the hole in the center of the cake plate is called a rum well. Still don't know how a person would use the rum well actually, maybe more research is needed. Hmmm

  3. I love the 'alternate' uses for your lovely new items. When will the sugar cookies be ready to eat?????
