Last Saturday we went to town. Remember folks saying they would 'load the younguns up on th' wagon and go to town'? We live about 40 minutes out of a larger city and gas prices have forced us to limit our town going. Anyway we stopped by the Salvation Army store and I found this wonderful pewter bowl to go along with my repro and vintage pieces. I think it looks wonderful decked out with dried pomengranates.
I am tired of 'collections' of things and am really trying to eliminate those groups of collections. I use everything that I own for theater, reenacting, school and church productions, holiday meals and celebrations. I just love using original things, as long as they are not going to get damaging wear. The new pewter fits the bill for serving without the danger of lead poisoning!
The goblets are vintage as is the little footed cutting board. The candlestick was made by one of the Meaders family potters. The towel is a real huckabuck and does not get used.
Well, it is a new day too. I love new days, new opportunities. I especially love sunrise and the light that it sheds on this new day God has given us. Between us, my next favorite time of day is dusk. The day is done, the sun is setting, birds are scampering for their nests, my mind is at rest, my soul is at peace.
Well, gotta get the laundry finished and work on supper. Thanks for stopping by for a little visit.
Blessings beyond what you can ever imagine.
