I used three stacking cake plates to display some of my old ornaments - I just got the striped one in the middle tier (it's marked Western Germany) from the thrift shop in a bag of really bad plastic and funky ones...I could just see it in there!  I added the new one and then putz'ed around rearranging the rest for at least 30 minutes...seriously, I need a life!

I second what Birdiemurphy said:
"ahhh...it's a wonderful life, isn't it...buying a bag full of ornaments at the thrift store just to get that ONE vintage piece out of the rest, then "returning" the rest to the thrift store again..."

I wonder how many times I've done this myself? Good to hear I'm not the only one that does this kind of shopping. I just did it a week ago.
