Sandra started a new feature today (well, she is reviving an old one). I’m joining in!
If you have something special you would like to show, if you have a trinket which has a special meaning for you or maybe something you have just found and own or would like to have. It could be anything, a trinket, a book, a new cookware set, a necklace, a photograph, a project you’re working on or finished….anything that you love and would like to show us all.
We have a pretty good Goodwill store in our area – in fact, we visit it several times a week as new things are always coming in, and it is located on the way home from our church/school/work.
My husband goes directly to the BOOK SECTION (big surprise!?) – the kids scatter to toys and books or clothes (Anna). I usually have my routine of scanning the clothes and then the dishes/kitchen stuff.
This week my efforts were rewarded!! I found this delicate little plate among the dishes – for 50 cents. I love china and (Czech) crystal and (Polish or Strassbourg/French) pottery. I don’t really “collect” it, but I enjoy the few pieces that I do have.
It is bone china – made in England! Another SCORE for me as I have been fascinated with all things British since we visited England and traveled there for 14 days in the summer of 1998 (when we were stationed in Germany).
Thank you for sharing in MY favorite things! [Note the pretty flowers from our 19th anniversary (on Dec 27) are still in pretty good shape – I’m so pleased that after “weeding” out some drooping blooms, I still have quite a lovely arrangement left to enjoy!]
