Sometimes “just because it is pretty” works for me when it comes to a thrift find. Especially an old broken piece of china or porcelain. So, for my first nod to Valentines Day, I thought I would share this pretty little pink rose design creamer and one of my favorite pink teacup sets.
She sat all alone of a thrift store shelf. Her handle had been broken off at some time during her life.
Although she had pretty little delicate feet, she was no longer desirable by anyone.
Just tossed on a dirty cluttered thrift store shelf. Hidden behind unbroken and more collectable items, she sat unloved and lonely. At one time she was part of a pretty tea service. Brought out with pride when guests visited. Until some careless moment, she was mishandled (yes, pun intended LOL).
I thought she still had beauty and a purpose. When I spotted her and saw that she was only “valued” at .39 cents at this store, I decided to take her home and let her have a new life on my nightstand.
She now proudly holds cough drops on an old cotton doily and tarnished little silver tray.
With the crazy freezing cold snowy blizzard one day and then a rainstorm and 60 degree weather the next day, my throat is sore and scratchy and I am pretending it is not just a symptom of a cold coming on.
The cough drops are needed as is a lovely cup of a pretty and yummy pink tea. (Thank you Katie for this delicious tea!)
It’s the little things that bring out a smile for me.
