Hi, friends. Happy last Friday of January 2020.
One of my goals for the new year is to do more thrifting. Last year I fell out of my routine of going to estate sales and/or thrift stores regularly and I really missed it. Even if I do not find anything I have so much fun just browsing. Besides, like the saying goes, you never know what you are going to find. I am happy to report my first estate sale for 2020 was not only a lot of fun, but a successful one, too. I found this sweet little sugar bowl for only $3.00.
I love that it has a subtle flower pattern in my favorite shade of pink. Even the back has a small flower detail.
I love the beautiful details. like the dots around the border of the rim.
And the half heart shaped handles with such soft pretty details.
There are no markings on the bottom or any where on the piece so I am not sure who the manufacturer is. I would like to find out to see if this piece is part of a set.
I just adore the slight signs of age around the top and the curves on the bottom,
A piece of the lid is broken but I am sure a little Gorilla Glue will do the trick.
I am not sure how I am going to use it yet. I think white or pink flowers will look so pretty in it. I also think it would look gorgeous on a vanity or a bathroom shelf holding makeup brushes. What do you think? What would you use it for?
Now for a song.
Yesterday, January 30, marked the 51st anniversary of the Beatles famous rooftop concert featured in the “Let It Be” documentary. That movie was on HBO one of the first months we got cable and I was addicted to it. I was too naive to realize the Fab Four were coming apart as a group at that point in time, even going as far as to agree with my cousin when he remarked, “Why did they break up? They look so happy?”
What I saw was them making some of my favorite music together in the studio and in that unannounced concert and I just swooned. That has always been one of my favorite albums of theirs because to me their later years were their best. And as much as I loved watching the studio takes of “Let It Be” and “The Long & Winding Road”, the concert was what this movie was all about. An extraordinary moment in time by the group that changed the world & music. John Lennon said the words to today’s song were “nonsense”, but only he could make nonsense sound uplifting, encouraging and philosophical.
“Well, you can celebrate anything you want
Yes, you can celebrate anything you want“.

I do not own the rights to the music. I am just sharing what I love with you.
Until next time, happy listening!!!
