Peanuts

For whatever reason, and we don't have to delve, once I saw this post from Lauren at Pure Style Home in October last year I have been unable to let it go.  We're talking serious peanut envy people.  The vintage silver-plated nut bowl completely captivated me and no other nut bowl was going to do again.

A few weeks ago I finally gave in and set about organising to purchase a replica of the original.

Before I sold my soul for the knock-off, I thought to check eBay.com one last time.  

Just in case.  

Drum roll please...

...am I building the suspense?

I am pleased to announce I am the owner of an original FB Rogers silver plate vintage peanut.  I LOVE you eBay.

Oh, and how much did I got it for?  Peanuts really, $28.32 right to my front door :)

  1. LOVE it! Never thought I might need a peanut shaped peanut plate so I'm confused by my intense jealousy ...

  2. Well done! I always suspected it pays to check on eBay first, and this just confirms it!

    Who would have thought you could have your very own peanut for peanuts!

    It looks great in your place! Enjoy :)

  4. I know exactly what you mean Ash! A peanut shaped peanut bowl had never occurred to me before I saw one last year and all of a sudden nuts weren't going to be worth serving if I couldn't do it in this!

    Thanks Jones, I really do love eBay. I like the little spot in our place for my new peanut too :)

    Nice to meet you Kendall, am just back from a little visit to your blog :) Thanks for stopping by.

  7. Hey! I have that same little peanut! I picked mine up at the flea market for $1.50 and a few weeks later my BFF got one at a local antique store for $8. I just love this little guy.

  9. Hi there! Do you know if they make any plugins
    to safeguard against hackers? I'm kinda paranoid about losing everything I've worked hard
    on. Any suggestions?

    your intelligence on just posting videos to your site when
    you could be giving us something enlightening to read?
