A gift

Out friend, Brighton Antique Dealer, gave me one of these for my birthday last year with the strict instructions not to put it up on the wall until the end of March 2016. By the date I guessed there was another to come for R's birthday, and sure enough, I was correct.

Strange how always the one nearest the flash light shows silver. I really like them. They would suit my bedroom, with its slight Asiatic theme, very nicely. But no one would ever see them, so they are on a wall that most visitors will see, the outside of the toilet wall.

    1. Margaret, we often pick up BAD and take us with her and she is always grateful and at times sees the need to lay some largess upon us. We don't mind at all.

  6. They are ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS. River has used exclamation marks, and I have used capitals, but the intent is the same.

    1. EC, I am going to ask her about them as I am quite interested as to whether they are valuable and their heritage.

    2. And would you love them less if they were $10 each from K-Mart?
      Value and heritage mean nothing to me when I love something.

    3. No River, the value would not matter to me but the heritage does.
