Gifts of kindness

Anyone who is anyone all know that I collect blue and white porcelain pieces.  I started back in the early 90's and now I have quite a unique collection..... which has grown from my travels and several gifts from friends over the years.
When I was getting over the flu recently, I was still feeling a bit down and out and struggling to get my life back in gear.
One day, my daughter brought me a gift from her friends.  Her two crazy friends who treated me to a lovely birthday dinner earlier this year.  It was such a thoughtful gift and it cheered me up immediately out of my "sicky sicky" doldrums.

They're right at home with the rest of my collection.

Thanks so very much Stuart and David!!!


  1. I like your collection. The top shelf has some varied and unusual ;pieces on it.

    1. Glad you like my collection.
      The etagere has four shelves, so you're really only seeing the second and third shelves.
      I've told everyone I don't need anymore, but they never listen....the poor shelves are full now.

  2. That's sweet. What a perfect gift for you! xoxox

    1. Yes it was the perfect gift to lift my spirits and to chase the remaining flu bug away.
      Good to see you here.

  3. You'll just have to treat yourself to a new etagere. Not that, until I read this, I had ever heard of an etagere.

    1. You've joined the ranks of my other friends by suggesting that I purchase another etagere.
      You've learned a new will come in handy with Words with Friends one day I'm
