When we cleaned out the aforementioned Maxwell House I tried to salvage as much as I could of things that could be of any value. I didn't take pictures of much of it, maybe I ought to take more pics of the things I found, but here are two.
In the cupboards and on the kitchen counters I found this set of Corelle dishes. I believe there are 24 pieces in total, all in perfect condition, no chips. I have my own set of Corelle, so I am torn as to what to do with it. Should I keep it, should I sell it? I dunno. We just don't use this many dishes, and we'd never use the cups, or the different sizes of bowls and plates. I think I will just sell it.
This is my collection of lotus blossom bowls. I like them. They make me happy. Why, I don't know, but they do. I have never bought on new. My first 3 or 4 I found at an estate sale. The others I have added from yard sales.
I found 2 of these in the Maxwell House. One was intact, one was chipped. I added the good one to my collection and am using the chipped one as a water dish for the cat.
Thankful things: (Hmmm...this isn't so easy on this post, oh, I know.) Yes, I am thankful that even in the midst of a disaster of a house I was able to find a few nice things. Something to keep and something to pass along to someone else.
