but daddy, i want it now

i am on the hunt for a cute vintage cake stand.

i very nearly won this one on ebay today.



i waited until there was just one minute left in the auction to place my bid, and when i clicked "confirm bid" all my internet browsers froze. by the time i could ctr/alt/del and launch another browser, the auction was over. the winning bid was just $11 too. i'm crying serious first world tears over here.

here are a couple more i have my eye on.



i actually collect milk glass. i especially love bowls and vases with hobnail patterns. so you'd think i'd definitely go for the cake stand above, but i don't know. i'm still pining for that damn amber colored cake stand i lost on ebay. stupid computer.



green. meh.

i've been stalking ebay and etsy for finds so far. if you can recommend another site or store, i'd love to hear it!

Oh, the amber one is my favorite, too! Doh. It's very cake-at-my-gram's-house.

I used to bid on things at work and when stuff froze or I lost by a little, I'd let out strangled cries of desperation. I think they thought I was watching porn.
