Shop your Home-You might find a surprise

January 27, 2013
Needless to say, between my beloved Mother's collectibles and my own I really shouldn't even be shopping.  So this weekend I stayed put and shopped at home.  You know I even ended up having a good time! 

I moved this house plant from my tea cart to the formal coffee table and brought the two glass bowls from a kitchen cupboard.  During Christmas the white urn was a home for the paper whites. (I guess I did shop-I bought another plant!)

Everything on this table has special meaning to me, making me even more satisfied!

These Hydrangeas and ranunculus came from the attic.  You know how I advocate saving all of your silk flowers!  They can always be dusted off and pruned to revitalize them.

Last but not least are these precious cups and saucers. I brought them out of the cupboard too.  These little cups and saucers are P. K. Silesia Porcelain!  They are true vintage and made somewhere between 1880 and World II, in a little town which is named Silesia, and located in Northeastern Germany.
