So I went last weekend to another estate sale. A beautiful home, on a lake, with a pool in a huge screened area. Lovely place. And this is the treasure I found.
I have a small collection of these ceramic scent balls. I don't know what else they are called. Potpourri holders? Closet smeller gooders? Whatever. Please tell me if you know. I love them but they are so hard to find, and when I do find one I just get all excited like I've come across a chest full of gold! This one came from England.
Here are my others, so far only six.
The yellow one is a bit wompy-jawed, but I like it anyway.
This green one with the bird sits by my bed, with a cotton ball inside sprayed with the last of my daughter Aleta's perfume. After three years, it still smells wonderful, and sometimes in the middle of the night when an air current flows through the room, I awaken when the gentle fragrance envelopes my senses.
But I think this one is my favorite. It has paintings on all four sides.
So, there you have my little treasured collection. Now, if you happen to have one of these and want to get rid of it, you know who would be thrilled to have it!
Until next time.....xoxoxo
