Another beautiful summer day.
Amazing that July is almost over.
Where, oh where, does the time go?
Today I want to show you somethings that were given to me.
Yes, given to me. . .cost me nothing!
A lady here in town had these for sale on a
little vintage web page.
I commented that I would like them,
but I didn't have the money
to buy them at this time.
(Retired means I am on a strict budget.)
A few days later the sweet lady contacted me and said
She would like to give them to me.
She wanted them to go to a good home.
Oh, my heart fluttered!
How did she know I had a love affair with PLATES?
And BLUE is my favorite color!
Not only plates, but just look at the adorable
Sugar Bowl, and Creamer.
And. . . .I love tea pots! Look at the cuteness!
Oh My, I have wanted one of these little cute cows.
I believe it is a creamer. . I see them in other blogs,
And I have wanted one for a long time.
Now just look at the cuteness of this platter.
It tells a story. . .well that is what I think.
On the back it says it is hand painted from Portuguese.
I am so thrilled with these new treasures. And to think
the lady was so sweet to give them to me. . .Ah!
I will use them for displays, in my little "Aunt Carol Hutch."
Blue makes me happy!
The only problem is now I have to get rid of some plates.
I have so many, that my new rule is, when new ones come in
I have to get rid old ones that I no long use.
It is a hard thing for a collector to do.
But hey, I will pay it forward and give someone
The plates I no longer use.
Hope you day is beautiful.
And that you have blue skies and sunshine.
Every house where love abides
And friendship is a guest,
Is surely home, and home sweet home
For there the heart can rest.
