Show and Tell


This past Monday I went to my Mom’s house and we went over to the Goodwill so I could drop off a few things. We always look around inside, and I found a few ‘treasures’. Why would anyone give this charming plate away?
Perfect for a birthday celebration!
Then I saw this little hobnail salt holder stuck on a shelf for $1:
Mom located a couple of thumbprint cobalt blue drinking glasses to go with some of the other glasses I have.
I have to make another run to my mom’s as she woke up Thursday with a terrible sore throat. I had to go to the dentist, so she had to wait until today. I feel bad, but her 100 foot long stone driveway wasn’t plowed and now the snow has a crusty ice topping. My brother’s friend will be doing that this morning. Please say a few prayers that she doesn’t have strep throat. I’m also thinking tonsillitis.
I’m wondering how crowded this event would be as I’d love to go! When people hear ‘free’ they go bonkers!
The Brandywine River Museum will host a public celebration of Andrew Wyeth’s life and work on January 31 with complimentary admission and a display of his most famous work, “Christina’s World” on loan from The Museum of Modern Art in New York. More details at:

  1. Love your plate. I have one similar in red. The tip I read was to use a china marker and write the dates or occasion on the back of the plate each time you use it. It was a great idea. I wish I had done that! 😉

  2. I think the plate is a wonderful find! I’ve seen similar in magazines and always think I should order one. The salt shaker holder-thingy is beautiful. I love the color! So pretty. Thanks for showing them to us.
