OK, now those who know me, know I have lots of what I call "bits". Bits are things I collect, second hand things that I find in flea markets, garage sales, thrift shops and yes, on the road side. In this photo are my treasures found at a favourite local thift shop. First a pair of Grindley Peach Petal plates, a gorgeous cream and gold Serving Plate that I plan to use for Chocolate Cakes (yes only chocolate because the colour is perfect to enhance Chocolate). Next, Spoons. silverplated and mismatched, just the way i like them. A shell covered Jewlery Box and a silverplated fretwork Casserole Dish with the glass insert. Lasty, a silverplated Tray which I cleaned up and placed on my dresser to hold my Bracelets. What a successful shopping day. Total spend: less than $30.00.
