Comment, stop in & share
Today I am sharing a dish I bought for $2 at an antique shop. When my daughter and I were spending time with Mom the last 2 weeks before she passed, we took a day and went to West Liberty, Ohio. It was a nice drive and we found a thrift shop my sister had told me about and visited other shops in this small town. One was an antique shop. Since I have good china with the "blue onion" design, other blue items catch my eye.
I couldn't resist the picture of the basket on this one. I display it on my kitchen table for now. The bottom says Charlotte Engraved from original drawings by J. Cuffs Designers. Reproduced in Royal Staffordshire Dinnerware, Burslem, England. Signed by Clarice Cliff. I don't know that any of that means anything. The dish is acutally much prettier than the picture shows. There are 3 small chips in it but that adds to its character.
We also visited my favorite candy shop, Marie's Candy. Mmmmmmmm.We made a few delicious purchases there. It has been in business for years in West Liberty. You can google it and make purchases on line and read about if you wish or stop in and take a tour in person, make some purchases and enjoy the atmosphere.
While you're here, check out my story on Monday, June 1. I think you'll like it. It has a new recipe there.
