More fascinating thoughts on my dishes...

I know you can HARDLY wait! 

But do you know that I have owned this dish for many, many years.  It has held candy, pickles, berries, buttons, etc... 

I bought it at auction.  It was one of the finer things that was in the glass case, such things as I never buy as they cost money and I am cheap.  I coveted it when I saw it and asked to hold it and I turned it over in my hands and knew that it would go for some princely sum, like $20.00.  I'm a $5.00 kind of chick.  So I handed it back and went to the back to dig through boxes of broken china and chipped depression glass. 

At the end of the auction, I was in line to pay for my stuff and watching as they sold the last few boxes or stuff.  For some reason I bid $5.00 on the last box and I didn't even know what was in it.  Well imagine my surprise when this dish was lying on the top.  Some things are just meant to be, I guess.

But that wasn't why I was posting today.  The thing I wanted to tell you is...I NEVER knew that there was a lobster on the handle of this dish, 'cause roses and lobster...really?  But there is!  With feeler thingys and claws and a tail and everything.  Now why didn't I ever see that?  I guess it's nice to know I'm not too old to be surprised...yet. 

Smiles from the farm,


  1. Very interesting! I didn't see it until you said that. Kind of like 'where's Waldo'. Too bad, however, that it wasn't a Peanut.

  2. That's a beautiful dish and yes it was ment to be yours...I like anything roses but roses and a lobster?? I will say that is really unique and it must add even more character to it...Have a nice day! hugs, Jennifer

  3. That is the coolest thing ever Lisa! ~Lili

  4. Hey there is, that's weird!
    Those were my exact words when I looked back up at the picture to try and see the lobster.
