Heads or Tails

Heads or Tails is back and I am so happy about it. This week is Old or New. I choose old, because I feel old this morning.


This is one of my most prized possessions. It is a sugar bowl that belonged to my great grandmother, Mollie Shook. It is the Virginia Rose pattern. It's traveled with me in all my moves, and so far not a scratch on it. I do not use it as a sugar bowl. It is in the hutch behind the glass door to be admired, but what do you think I use it for?

I have a glass container on my hutch that holds my jewelry. I've heard never to store your "good" stuff in your jewelry box, that way it will never be found if you were to get robbed.

Have a great tuesday!

It's beautiful and clear you take excellent care of it. I think I'd use it either for jewelry or change. Sugar bowls used to be associated with stashing extra cash! I think I saw it in a movie somewhere! :)

You are all right.... I store my extra cash in there, when I have extra.
