Rebus Puzzle

OK, for all you rebus buffs out there can you please tell me what this little cup is trying to tell me. If you look real close on the cup you will see eye....M....pitcher?....match?...for the life of me I cant figure out what it means. First of it a pitcher? And is it a match or quill? I know the eye and letter M..mean "I'm"..right?
Can you figure out the mystery and please let me know.

Oh my goodness...I seem to be arriving late to all my blog parties...this is something that I quickly threw together before I turn into a pumpkin at midnight.
I've had these shoe cobblers in the porch so I apologize for not thinking of dusting, an old humidity reader and an old Spanish fan that I love. I am off to see what other goodies have been posted at Gypsy Brocante.
Happy gypsy friends.

Thrifty Thursday

Once again I am joining Leigh over at Tales from Bloggeritaville for the Thrifty Thursday. I hope you all don't mind if I use the same picture from the last post. I really love my green glass and want to keep on showing it..until I find something else to replace it with. haha. When I saw these red and white plates at my local thrift store I was so excited. You see, I 've had plates like these before and dummy me, I broke them up to make mosaic stepping stones. Yes, I know..what a dummy! So now I am slowly adding red and white plates to my cupboards. I know it's not the whole set but who cares, they are still pretty to enjoy.
The "bread" plate was found about a month ago at a TS too, I thought it was so cool that it had the word bread on it with all the cute details. I might use it as a decoration during the Thanksgiving month...That's about it for today but please check out the other Thrifty Thursday posts...lots of goodies to see!!

P.S....I love comments...

"I'm a Flea Marketeer Party....

I'm late....I'm late..... to the "I'm a Flea Marketeer Party" over at Flea Market Style. I found these three pieces at my all time favorite thrift shop last week. I was so excited to bring them home and display them.
A closer look shows a man either serenading or proposing to his love.

I love the picture on this, for some reason old ships have always fascinated me. Maybe because I have had dreams about them? Hmmmm...who knows.

Our Halloween Party

Good Evening....the Halloween Party has started, please sit down and fill your cups with spirits for this will be a hauntingly good time. Nothing cute or pretty here, lots of bones if you will..Stroll around and mingle, meet my son....he's no Kris Kringle.

the spiders are here or there

look there's one don't despair.

Take the bait, grab some treats...

here's some that have enjoyed eats.

If we don't have what you like don't loose your head

your complaints are better off left unsaid.

Is it time to go?

We don't think so!

have a seat, will it bite?

The garments are here to excite

so let us start the horror story

because we're sure that it will be gory.

Grab all your need full things

like eye of newt and bat wings.

Bring your cutlery in vain

in which these drawers contain.

We've invited everyone including living or dead

light the candles and start your night of dread.

The table is set

the treats abound

better hurry before none are found.

The guests have arrived

some not so safe and sound.

But in time more will come around...
Here's some cakes with some appendages

but wait for dinner or you will need bandages.

Be you skeleton or be you ghost..

here is the arrival of our anticipated host.

Don't worry if his conversation is boring...

his beautiful bride is quite alluring.

Dessert is after dinner so make your appetite go far...

and save your strenght for the milk bar.
(my other son)

Enjoy pictures of our guests...

for this party has become one of your best.
