Blue Monday ~ English Chippendale


Welcome to my Blue Monday. I’ve posted these dishes that I love before but not for Blue Monday and since they are very blue I will show them again. I have 4 place settings of these dishes that I purchased in 1984 at a Model Home furniture and accessories sale in my neighborhood in Ventura, California. They are English Chippendale by Johnson Bros. England. The set cost me $25.00.

To see more Blue or to join in the fun visit Sally our hostess here.

Photobucket is holding all my photos from 2007-2015 hostage on their site. All my photos that I stored and uploaded from that site are now big ugly black and grey boxes with a message to pay big bucks to get them restored to my blog. It will take me a long time to restore thousands of posts.

Pink Saturday ~ 4

Welcome to Pink Saturday!


Come up to my front door

I’ve got some music playing in stereo.

We’ll have a cup of tea and enjoy this Pink Saturday.

For more Pink Saturday visit Beverly at How Sweet the Sound.

Photobucket is holding all my photos from 2007-2015 hostage on their site and have replaced my photos with black and grey boxes of ugliness. I’m slowly deleting those boxes from my blog and trying to update so many posts, very frustrating.

More Thrift Store Goodies…

This is a busy weekend for my extended family. Graduations, birthdays, baby shower, and wedding shower, all packed into two days. The women on my side of the family are hosting a shower on Sunday for our future niece/cousin/granddaughter. Lot’s of organizing, cooking, and putting together. Hopefully I’ll have photos to share. I’ll be on the road through L.A. and onto Orange County for the festivities. So before I head into craziville I took a moment at the local thrift store and look what I found.


Three pieces of Pink Depression glass for $6.50.

This Old Foley, James Kent LTD, Made in England, “Harmony Rose” bowl for $1.25.

This Wedgewood cup and saucer for $.75.

Have a wonderful weekend. Think of me while I try to create my very first cake with fondant icing. If it works I’ll be sure to post a photo.

Photobucket is holding all my photos I stored with them from 2007-2015 hostage. They have blacked out all those photos on my blog posts. OH BOTHER! I’m slowly cleaning up my posts.
