I so love when serendipity pops in for a visit. A couple weeks ago, I popped into the Burlington Antiques and Art Emporium. Just passing by, I had an etsy customer interested in some items that I had at the Mall, no time to shop, just grab and run. Another vendor was just arriving with her new inventory and price tickets in hand. I inquired about the beautiful hand painted tray, the colors are amazing. She told me it was $19.00, I was sold, but then she decided the $17.00 was enough. It feels a little like stealing.
Back at home, I had a bid on the 6 enamel ware cups, vintage Mackenzie-Childs. I won the auction! The sad thing/embarrassing thing is, I never made the connection that these would go together.
At least not until the cups arrived in the mail. I was so excited when I realized that the cups were such an amazing match for the tray. The next day, I glanced at the shelf housing my collection of chintz dishes and other vintage Mackenzie-Childs, and realized that I had the sugar and creamer that were also a perfect match!
Now, while I am thrilled with how this set created itself, I am perplexed. Did it take me so long to make the connection because I have too much STUFF, (can't be that), or do I just chalk it off to another senior moment?
I'll enJOY my moment,
You enJOY Your Blessings,
