This post begins with the story about how much my friend Tara and I love estate sales. We are always telling each other of our special finds. One particular day, I stopped by an estate sale after dropping my youngest daughter off at school. When I returned home, and we were on the phone, I had mentioned that I found this adorable crystal bowl with a base of silver plate. I didn't purchase it because I couldn't think of a use for it. As we were talking, she said that she was looking for a sweet little crystal bowl to put on her vanity. After getting off the phone, I immediately called the estate sale lady and asked if the piece had been sold. The answer was no. I asked if she would hold it, and off I went.
The silver band is almost unblemished.
I decided to put it on my vanity to hold jewelry. I couldn't keep it. Tara wanted it, so the decision was made. I waited until Easter and filled it with a cute decoupage egg.
Besides being an old piece, I wonder what the last owner used this delicate piece of crystal for?
And now onto a new owner.
I'm sure she will be pleasantly surprised when she opens this little Easter surprise.
