It’s no secret that I am sometimes drawn to unusual or odds things.

Oddities as I like to call them…….

My husband no longer asks what I am going to do

with the oddities I find.

My latest is an antique carving set with bone handles.

I paired it with

my silver meat dome for now…….




I was completely smitten with the handles which are

smooth from many years of use.




I found the set at an antique store for $15.

I thought that was a pretty good deal but really I love them so

much it doesn’t matter?!?!?!


Have a great weekend my friends!

Hope you will consider

I am drawn to unusual things too, but I just call them unique haha. I love this silver dome - it is unique in itself. Isn't it nice to find wonderful and different things? I bet you went home with a smile after finding this antique carving set. Happy Friday, Deserae.

I really like that meat carving set you found. It's fun to decorate with things that you can also use. (That's very farmhousey.) LOL! I love that silver dome too. I have one that I pull out every now and then, but I like yours better.

I love the meat dome too. I saw some serving pieces with handles like these at an estate sale today Des. They were way more than you paid. You got a good deal. Have a super weekend, Olive
