Special Christmas Gift Giving

For many years, I have used a method of gathering together a few select Christmas gifts to share with friends old and new.

There is nothing comparable to giving something to a friend that was part of my life.

I have been a thrifter and explorer for a very long time- as was my mother and now my girls- and so these treasures from my special collections are perfect to share with a friend.

In handing it to them, I have often said 'this belonged to my mother'.

And so that gift completes some sort of circle in my heart.

Whether it is a piece of milk glass from my beloved collection, 


or a hammered aluminum bowl from the fifties that was my mother's- or later mine :) the feeling is the same.

It makes me smile every time- and it always brings a smile to their faces as well.

My weakness for silverplate, and the collection that has resulted, provides a way I can share my love for its beauty with someone else.

Doing this at Christmas is especially beautiful.
