Slim Pickings

The pickings were slim at this weeks sales. I don't want to just toss money away, and Lord knows my house is full of stuff already, so I do try to be careful about what I buy.

Roses round plate I got a lovely pink-rose plate from Austria. I think it's a cake or a sandwich plate, since it's not very large, and I like the unusual shape. When you find solitary pieces like this, it makes you wonder where the rest of the set went. Was it dispersed to family and friends? Did a jealous lover smash all but this one plate in a fit of rage? Or was the owner just careless and -- oops! -- dropped another one?

I love this little what-not box -- yet another place to put earrings! They had a hair brush that went with it, and now I'm annoyed with myself that I didn't buy it, too. Oh well. Maybe I'll find Heart box something to go with it some day -- something even prettier. One never knows.
