Herself: Ate too many no sugar cough drops before bed last night. Got a return letter from Ba…I’m glad she wrote.
Reading: The new Kellerman. Excellent.
Balance: Reading quietly in a pool of light deep into the night. Sending prayers out for friends.
Silver Patterns: This site has descriptions and prices of most American silver plate patters back into the 1800’s.
At our first estate sale stop I found an incomplete set of Morning Star Silver plate. I leapt on it asking, “How much,” thinking it would be far beyond my price range.
“Six bucks,” the owner said. I clasped them to my breast knowing I had the find of the day in my arms. We bought another partial set in this pattern many years ago, and paid twenty five dollars for that set.
I am out in the world hitting estate sales with specific goals. I’m not looking for silver….even six dollar silver, I am looking for 1950’s turquoise Christmas decorations. He’s looking for salt and pepper shakers….especially the one at the top of his blog.
Instead we found wonderful cookbooks. I brought home two more. G found a working MAC for a granddaughters birthday for almost nothing. And at the very last sale, up near our house, G found a whole box of Automotive Magazines and I found another rabbit.
I hang my head. What I do not need is another stuffed animal in this house. G’s mom made stuffed bears….Ruby bears with ruby earrings in one ear. We have bears. I’ve bought a bear or two of my own over the years….and a rabbit too. What in heaven’s name do I need with another rabbit.
Whatever am I to do with myself?
