A Good Standard of Living




Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business
and to work with your hands, just as we told you, so that your daily life
may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody.

Current Giveaway-Better Late Than Never

Sorry I am late on this.  This giveaway will run until November 1st.

As I've been de-stashing, I've been putting things aside to offer up in my giveaways and I picked these items out this weekend.  I inherited my mother's tea set, so I've decided to pass my first on to you!  This set was purchased in Saudi Arabia some 30 years ago.  I've enjoyed it for years, but it doesn't hold the sentimental value that my mother's set does and I certainly don't need two tea sets.  That theory doesn't always hold, as I have three sets of china!  Hmmmm

Anyway......please excuse the lack of quality in these photos.  The tea set currently resided inside my mother's china cabinet and the light for taking pictures really isn't very good at any time of the day. Plus, I really need to upgrade my camera soon. 

The second item is one that I purchased on eBay about 10 years ago.  It's an adorable hand painted scoop about 9" long.  Hangs from a piece of pink satin ribbon.  Really cute.

Lastly, are these two vintage pin rose berry bowls.  I used them as coasters in my living room until I changed my decor recently, so I'll let someone else enjoy them for a while in their china display or wherever they work in your house.

To enter, just leave a comment on this post and for 2 extra chances to win, follow my blog  and mention this giveaway on your own blog.  Be sure to let me know you did this when you leave your comment.  I use a random generator to choose the winner.

Good luck!
