Show and Tell from Belgium


This delightful small bowl has been stored away for quite some time. As with most things I have collected, I'm not sure of any history connected with it. But, one thing for sure, it is the only item I have from Belgium.








In fact, until today, I didn't remember that it was marked with these words. Have you seen this mark before? It appears to be hand written.








                                Do you think the large flowers are chrysanthemums?


Even with a small chip or two, it is still a bowl that can be admired for its beauty and age.


A personal note: Earlier this year, I wrote a post about My Mom, the Cowgirl. The last few weeks my Mom's health has been failing. With the selling of my farm and the moving to Das Kleine Haus, I am now faced with the selling of my mother's home.

Consequently, some days, there is no time left for posting or commenting. Hopefully, things will soon settle down to a more regular routine. Thank you for your continued support of my blog. I do, so much, appreciate you.....

  1. Hi Meggie, just been catching up with your posts. Didn't realise I had missed so many. The parade looks wonderful, you live in such a lovely place, I would love to live in a small town where everyone knows each other. Maybe someday. Sorry to hear about your mother, it seems you have a lot on your plate at the moment and I hope everything goes ok. Please don't worry about commenting or anything, we are your friends whatever happens and love reading your blog. Take care and lots of love and hugs xxx

  2. I love the way the colours on the bowl look as though they have run. So much to do but remember to make some time for yourself.
