  1. I'm thinking now of aunts and soap in which my special aunt had plenty of and probably still does in one colorful stack in an apothecary jar on the back of the toilet. I always lifted the lid and smelled of it hoping she would say, "do you want to pick out one and take it home?" but instead I dropped a very pricey antique vase in the bathroom and it shattered on the tile and my uncle (if he were here) would to this day shake his head in sadness and remind me what a SPECIAL piece it was before I distracted him by reminding him what one of my brothers or nephews had broken sending him into grief over another piece and getting the monkey off my back.

    1. But then being the good Brocante housekeeper that I know you are you wouldn't dream of saving them for best now would you??
      P.S: the free letterheads on your site are divine!
