If you have two loaves of bread sell one and buy flowers. For although the bread will nourish your body, the flowers will nourish your soul.

Finding Treasures

 Every once in a while, you hit the motherlode when flea marketing. I found (for the first time) a couple pieces of my crystal pattern, Lenox Antique Blue. When this pattern was discontinued years ago, it was selling for thirty some dollars a stem. I also collect blue and white dinner plates, both new and antique. I love to mix them on a table. So I found this plate and two stems of the Lenox crystal at an antique mall, marked $5 apiece. I was so excited, both at the find, and the price. Imagine my joy at discovering a sign that said everything in the booth was 50% off!!!! I found two of the stainless steel utensil holders at a local secondhand store for 50 cents each. So that comes to a grand total of $8 for everything you see. Woo-hoo!!! (You can click on the photo for a closer look.)
