First, is this cute little blue covered candy dish. I am assuming it is a candy dish, as it is much to small to be a serving dish. I just had to purchase this one...my hubby's rank in the military is the same symbol, an eagle. Had to have it for him. Again, he just thanked me so much, just like the milk cream spout I posted a few days ago. I do try my best to remember him while I'm out making my purchases. : )
Next up, is part of a George and Martha Washington Avon goblet set. Five years ago we lived on land that once was part of Mount Vernon, George and Martha's famous estate on the Potomac River in Alexandria, VA. That was all I needed to know to validate my want for these goblets. I have 12 of Martha and 12 of George. Also, have the creamer and 24 small size luncheon plates. Nope, I never used them the 4 years we lived in Mount Vernon. But, had to have them!!!
And finally for today I present to you all a very bad picture of a wonderful tea set that I also purchased during our Virginia time. I just love the ship detail. You know lots of ships once went up and down the Potomac River, or so I told my husband. : )
In closing, I'd like to say, that my hubby certainly isn't dumb, and he sees right through all the justification I am constantly presenting to him. Hi, my name is Ann, and I like stuff....lots and lots of stuff!!
Please head on over to Smiling Sally's blog to have a look at so many other great blue photos.
Happy Monday to all!
