To Quote William Morris...
I complained to Tessie and she zapped herself out of the room....I thought "How rude!"
The Turkish cigarette tin has been with me since college....I don't smoke. I have a thing for black and white and the tin holds loose change.
The useless little, hand painted, Italian pitcher holds toothpicks. Handy for when I am working in the bedroom.
The black flower frog hold numerous pairs of scissors. Also handy for miniatures. I think that I have mentioned these before. I use them for holding tools, pencils and, crochet and knitting needles. I started collecting these years ago when I could get them for about a quarter a piece. Now I see them at antique stores at $5.00 and up. Good investment. Also very, very useful for storage.
I am going now and do some more weeding of junque. Please don't ask how I am doing in the workroom....Let's just say that I am sending Tessie in there if I need anything....
Back to the useful and beautiful now.
See you tomorrow.
