Trash To Treasure...... No, REALLY! And, It's Blue Monday Too!

Hi Sweet Chickies and THANK YOU for coming... I love it when you pop in.... :-)

Yes, I know..... some would say....HOLY COW Spencer, why the heck would you want to add this little broken plate to your bloggie?.... Yeah, probably MOST.

I suppose I'd be thinking that too.

Ahhhhh.... But this little plate is a TREASURE to me.

My darling little grandson was here when I dropped this little number and broke it to bits.

I had it under a candle in my bathroom.... It was only a little garage sale find.... no big deal really......... probably about twenty five cents.

Now it's worth a million bucks!

Well, to me.

He caught me as I was tossing it into the garbage and dug out the pieces... (nearly all of them).... And, told me he'd fix it for me.

I know, it's really a small thing, but it really tickled me. How sweet is that?

So he worked on it for quite awhile and now it's "as good as new"....

It's back in my bathroom.

I see it every day.

And, every day it makes me smile.

Who says you need to have Limoges?

I am CRRRRAZY about this little fella...

Have a great week little sweeties.

  7. Morning Spencer,
    I came over from Holiday in the Sun to Congratulate you on your Promo win of all those cutie pie pumpkins from Becky. I have seen them up close and personal and they are really cute,
    so know you will love them.
    Also loved your story about the broken saucer,
    how precious of your lil grandson, I think I would keep it too!! Hope he keeps that thoughtfulness his whole life thru!!
    I had a lovely visit, and hope you have a great week ahead,
    Blessings, Nellie
