Fun Monday

Fun Monday - Show and Tell

What is the quirkiest thing in your home that you will never give away?

This was my assignment for everyone today. I hope everyone had a much easier time of it than I did. I had a hard time coming up with anything quirky that I wouldn't give away. I know, I know, I should have thought of that first.

So, here are the two things I won't give away.

This is a surfers' hat. It has a very broad brim to keep surfers from sunburn and skin damage. Are you scratching your head, wondering why I won't part with it? Well, I gave this to my Dad about 20 years ago. I gave it to him because he had a small melanoma on his face, and I wanted to protect him. It's the only thing I have of his. He passed in 2002. Normally, it hangs in our bedroom, like below.

Here's another head scratcher for you; a crystal cake plate. I bet my daughters don't even know I have this. It's special because Bob bought it for me about 35 years ago. He remembered how I always admired my Aunt Cora's collection of crystal cake plates. She had all kinds of beautiful crystal, and several cake plates. I would have never bought this for myself; I don't even make layer cakes very often. But because Bob bought it, when we didn't have much money, makes it very special to me. Below is another photo, I put some gigantic muffins in it so you could see how wonderful it is.
