I have been diligently working to "gather" items that will help me entertain. Remember I only had settings enough for 4 people? Sandy at Reluctant Entertainer explains that most items can be found at thrift or discount stores. So thrifting I have been doing. I found this Japanese China and was elated, I've never owned a set of China before. I haven't figured out how to make a picture collage on my blog yet, so forgive the string of photos. I'll be posting over the next couple weeks the treasures I have collected so far. Cheers!
