Hidden Treasure

One of my favourite shows is The Antique Roadshow. I am not sure if it's the guy with the funny glasses or the surprise on peoples faces when they find out that Granny's old junk is worth more than their house.

I am not a collector or a hoarder, I'm the kind of person that will give away or throw away anything I no longer use or like. I hate the surfaces in my home to be cluttered with things. My Mother on the other hand, collects and holds on to everything. She has more ornaments in her house than Imelda Marcos has shoes!

There are a few pieces I've always had my eye on, even before I recognized my own fetish for kitchen related gadgets. I know this bowl is terribly kitch, and totally over the top but I really do love it. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that it always stood on the sideboard and I was never allow to touch it or maybe I am turning into a sap in my old age. Whatever the reason, I am very proud that it now lives in my house and I can touch it every day.

Of course it will not only be an ornament in my home and I can't wait to use it... Perhaps a creamy blue cheese and cauliflower soup?

Oh, that's an interesting piece!

Maybe I'm mean, but sometimes I like people's faces when people are expecting that their thing is worth a million and then they're told they were wrong :P

So kitsch it's really cool! Love it!

Jeremiah 17: 7-8

"Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him. He will be like a tree planted by the water."

It is not your business to succeed, but to do what is right : when you have done so, the rest lies with God.
C.S. Lewis
