Rose Bowl


A first commandment of frugal living is Despise Thou Not Free Stuff. I found this little vintage bowl on a free table at an antique store (along with this silver tea pot), and fell in love with it. I keep it on my dresser to catch stray pennies, or my earrings when I take them out last thing at night.

I love your commandment and what a pretty, dainty dish. I think it's nice when people find ways to use the nice things which you've done.

Your rose bowl is very pretty, and I really like the silver teapot, too. Tarnish is *in* don't you know? Good thing the antique dealer doesn't know this ;-)
