Black wood handled masher, an antique glass bottle, some vintage and new glass beads, and a vintage white earring tops this off.
I added a vintage glass bottle with a lavender tint and violet glass beads.
A collection of three.
One more!

I am SO attracted to vintage potato mashers that I just can't walk by one at any sale. I add a vintage/antique glass bottle, some vintage jewelry pieces and a few new beads and usually add a satin or organza bow. Just a single stem of whatever your favorite flower is seals the deal!

Great junk!
