There is so much I want to do..and can't. I feel this urge to rush, hurry, paint, sew, push furnature around, bake, visit, shop, hug, cry and just roll around in life!
I have no idea why the intense feeling of HAVING to get things done. We are going to my daughters for Thanksgiving and to another daughters for Christmas. It's a good feeling, this urge to creat and plump pillows..and though the urge is strong the bod is weak.
Thank you so much for the sweet compliments on my Holiday blog background. The sweet lady that does and installs them for me, listens to what I want and comes up with lovely creations, has been a blessing to me. I am not..NOT..computer savy! I limp along.
So..below is my Saturday morning find! I was so pleased!
This little pot bellied silver teapot was just sitting there on a table among a lot of "stuff." It was nearly black with tarnish...and took some doing to polish up.
I can use it for holly during Christmas. OR..tea..or...to hold Christmas napkins..whatever the case..I was delighted. The inside is..PERFECT! The sticker on the bottom was very old. Price $1.00!! HONEST!!
I bought a stack of lovely childrens books and the lady threw in these two faux African Violets.. :) Was that sweet or what? I also bought a GREAT pancake turner from her for 10 cents. (I didn't really need it...I mean..but it was a really good one.
so..I clunked them into my teapot for now..
At another garage sale these turned up for .25 each. Tiny vases...I loved the color and Spring is coming and ...anyway...
So now my question. :) I have noticed my daughter using her silver tarnished! I wanted to ask her about it..but...what could I say and not get into trouble? So I just said "Honey, why is your silver all tarnished?!" (it just slipped out!) And she said, with a patient look, "Mom, I like it like that and everyone is doing it!" Sooooo...ok.
Question. IS everyone doing it? DO you polish your silver? Am I out of the loop?
NO matter. I will continue to polish my silver and be "uninformed" :):)
