There is something so comforting about coming home to the city you grew up in. I know the streets, how to get from here to there, the grocery stores and where the nearest gas station is. I know this place like the back of my hand. It's good to be "home."
Well...sadly, there were no good finds today. We searched high and low and NOTHING was to be found. Maybe we were looking too hard, maybe it was all picked over. Who knows. We'll try again tomorrow to see if there is anything that is calling our name.
I did have a nice surprise from my grandmother, Mimi. She has been downsizing recently and is cleaning house. I was fortunate enough to have her give me these two beautiful pewter bowls that she has had for probably over 40 years. She has some of the most interesting, unique and beautiful serving pieces and silver. She recently gave me a silver gravy boat and vegetable platter that someone had given her and my grandfather for a wedding present in the early 40's. It is something I treasure!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend with your families! I sure will with mine!
