SHOW & TELL



More participants here

During my sunday walk on Brussels' midi market, I saw these morrocon purses in all colors. I thought they are very nice for holidays or even now for summer and I bought a red one for me. It has little mirrors on it and I only payed 5 € ! (little more then 5 $)





the table


and the ashtray

When the weather is not so nice I like to go in our "junk" shop where you can find, furniture, decorations, plates, books etc, modern stuff, and beautiful antiques, sometimes really very interesting. That what happened yesterday. I saw this ashtray in Onyx and it has exactly the same color as our sofa table. Amongst our friends there are still some normal people, (now considered as dangerous health killers) who are not health fanatics and dare to smoke !

I just had put my hand on it when a lady behind me said "Oh, that's beautiful exactly what I need for my living room I have an onyx table" ! I took the ashtray in my arm and said, "yes, I too and that's why I will buy it right away !" I only payed 10 € ! A real bargain !

This shop is also a source for photo memes ! From odd shots to ruby reds etc you find everything there.




My cleaning woman came back from her holidays in Poland and brought me this beautiful little drawing of her home town. It's also a SPA town. She always brings me something.

I love the red satchel!! That is so nice. It'd be great for me to take along on the beach when I pick up sea shells. LOL [the marble top table and standing ash tray are nice too!]

FIRST, I must say THANK YOU for the delightful Birthday BAND playing in my living room this morning!!! They put a big ol' smile on my face! You're a dear friend Gattina! Thank you.

I think that little red purse is just darling! I would have snatched it up too - and probably a few more colors for that price!

Back in the day I used to have some really pretty ash trays! I always wondered WHY they made them so pretty when you were just going to smash out YUCKY old cigarette butts in them! But still... when they were CLEAN they were pretty! Today we have two ashtrays in the house... one beside Dennis's chair... and the other usually in the kitchen for when he sits at the table to read the paper. (sometimes it wanders off when the kids come around!) Anyway... neither of them are pretty -- only functional! Really it's HARD to find ANY to buy anymore!

You found nice things for cheap prices. Arthur seems to appreciate your shopping!
