I love supporting the local RSPCA thrift shop. I regularly de-clutter and haul off my booty. Then I arrive back home again and unpack someone else's de-cluttered booty, procured for a bargain price while I bask in the warm, fuzzy glow of helping warm, fuzzy animals with my purchase.
A few months ago, on a nonsensical-yet-philanthropic de-cluttering and re-cluttering cycle such as the aforementioned one, I was chuffed to find this sweet gold-rimmed demitasse cup and saucer, produced by Westminster. It's an Australian china manufacturer about which I can find little of substance, though I apologise that my research today was scanty. Nearly as scanty as ... oh, never mind. So to make amends, I'm adding a handful of quasi-daisy-like blooms to enjoy for the weekend. I thought I'd choose a colour that brings a little cheery sunshine for those who'd love some at the moment.
And on the subject of the RSPCA ~ Thank You from the bottom of my heart to those who Chipped In and helped the RSPCA Victoria to care for abandoned and neglected animals over the Christmas/New Year season. The fundraiser ends tomorrow, so you can still make a last-minute donation ~ all are valued more than words can say! And now...
Happy Friday Fleurish to you! PS: My internet access in the next few days may be dodgy, so if I haven't checked in or visited your blogs as usual, please forgive me ~ I'll make up for it as soon as I can!
