I found these awesome Fisher "Jewel Trays" in a little country thrift store in the outskirts of Suffolk. They were patented in the 30's and i think served as ashtrays, coasters, and tip trays at bars or restaurants. They are hammered brass with marbles around the edge. I have seen these priced individually anywhere from 20 bucks and up, depending on the color and types of marbles used. I got these as a set for 2 bucks! SCORE!!!!! They look awesome with the rest of my brass collection, which is mostly stuff from India, China, and Japan.

Being poor forces you to be creative sometimes. I am a sugar addict, and being on a budget means no money wasted on sugary junk food, sigh..... however, I was able to make these fried bisquick dough balls rolled in powdered sugar, YUMMY!!!! I also made some with a orange sugar glaze that were even better.
