A Delightful Pair
I found an ensemble of six porcelain figures resting on the shelf at Goodwill amongst the clutter. These elegant figures looked so completely out of place in amongst the tat that only the coldest of hearts would not be moved by their reduced circumstances, for surely they had been members of a beloved collection of some dear lady who had crossed over to the great beyond. Once laying eyes upon them I knew it was my duty to perform a rescue and so it was that after meticulous inspection I chose two of the six to bring home. It was indeed a hard decision, but I think these two make a particularly delightful pair. I especially like the little bird on the lady’s dress and the gentleman kicking up his heel. So lovely!
Dressing A Table
I went to the beach yesterday to cool off from the heatwave we’ve been experiencing. It was a lovely day with 70 degree weather and a gentle breeze. On the way home I stopped into the local thrift store in Lincoln City and found this lovely vase with a bird motif, the perfect container for green gladiolus which are currently in season. They make quite a statement!
Also on the table you will see a set of candlesticks which look possibly Scandinavian in design and a large platter which were also “finds” along the way. They are atop a paisley print table runner I made to compliment my Blue Italian Spode dinnerware.
I have started a new section of my blog that is for sharing my penchant for things blue and white. I hope you will enjoy the treasures I find as I comb various thrift stores looking for interesting and unique items to add to my growing collection.
