SHOW AND TELL FRIDAY/FRIDAY FEAST



Hootin Anni's PH PH PH PH is here !



If you want to participate go to Kelli's blog.




We have got these very old (1920) chinese hand painted plates for our wedding 38 years ago. Of course they stand up as a decoration and were never used as plates. I love the flower decoration around and the old costumes of the ladies.

When was the last time you received a surprise in the mail, and what was it?

It was a big Christmas parcel from Melli with two lovely little ceramic cats inside. It took me 15 min to open the parcel it was so well wrapped that it was easier to burgle a safe.

Soup
If you could have a summer and/or winter home, where would you want it to be?

Certainly not a winter home ! I would love to have a flat in Egypt at the Red Sea right on the beach ! The weather is warm to hot and always sunny, people are very friendly there and life is also very cheap. It also only takes 4 h to get there.

Salad
Pick one: pineapple, orange, banana, apple, cherry.

Can't pick anyone I only eat grapes ! And in mass ! and they are not mentioned.

Main Course
Describe the nicest piece of clothing that you own.

My clothes are all nice or nicest otherwise I wouldn't wear them. If I had a favourite one I would wear it everyday and that gets boring.

Dessert
If you could forget one whole day from your life, which day would you choose to wipe from your memory?

How can I choose a day I don't remember anymore ? I usually wipe them out immediately !

Beautiful plates!! I wouldn't use them either: they are not dishwasher-safe!!

I only eat green apples and only Granny Smith...
I have never been to Egypt. Let me know when you get that house :)
Happy Friday!

Egypt is not too hot? I agree about the Dessert. I would have forgotten a day I choose not to remember. :D

Schönes Wochenende, meine Liebe!

Gattina, beautiful , delicate plates! Love the cartoons...thanks for the laugh! :)

Melli said...

Those plates are niiiiice Gattina! When Amanda was in Korea she sent home some oriental treasures, and at that time I would have liked to decorate ONE room in oriental so that I could PROPERLY display them... but Dennis would have no part of it - he hates the style! Soooooo I displayed them IMproperly for awhile... but oriental and "country" just don't quite mesh. I finally put them away.

Interesting ornate plates---hey, I noticed you like Marry Higgins Clarke--I love her too and I just finished reading an older one of hers I had read a long time ago and enjoyed it just as much the second time around. What I like about her is that she often writes about places in the New England and New Jersey areas where I spent quite some time!! As far as the cats go ---I don't know how you do it---I have one and he is a handful. He is 12---I have a pic of him on the side of my blog if you scroll down. He has his front claws out (I know, I know, a lot don't do this now a days---this was 12 years ago)--but he still does quite a lot of damage!! I wanted to have one leather chair but I know I will have to wait till he dies and he may out live me!! Enough already!! Have a great day. OHHHH and Belgium--do you like Periot mysteries???

Michelle said...

ROFL with your dessert! Smart. :D

My feast is served.

Gattina,
this is my second try - my first comment just vanished.

I agree: Grapes in tons. I preserve them (stoneless) in the fridge, and eat the fresh and cold.

Summerhome we have; our tiny paradise (normally). We have a winterhome too, you know. Very practical as long as we still work. Later,we can rent a place in the Sun whereever we feel safe.

Your Cartoons are great.

have a great weekend.

btw. Salta: The Plaza is very Colonial yes. But visit later posts from the same area;D. Very different.
