New Dish and the Birthday Boy

The other day, I tried out a new thrift store someone recommended to me.  It had a great furniture section, but was pretty skimpy on the clothes.  As I ambled through the shelves of dishes, though, I spied this little darling.

It is a small ironstone tureen.  Somewhere along the way, it lost its lid, so it's not terribly valuable to "real" collectors, but it was certainly worth $1.50 to me!

It's like a Mini-Me to the tureen I found last fall!

Totes adorbs, as the young people say.

Even without its lid, it can be useful.  Like holding the keys I lose at least once a week.

It's a little thing, but it made my day.

Speaking of making my day, this kid has always made my day.  Fourteen years ago today, he was my day!  Micah Robert was born at 3 p.m. that day.  He gave us a scare as the cord was wrapped around his neck, but now that's just something to tease him about and I am so very thankful.

Isn't he the cutest?

Happy birthday, Micah!  You are a blessing to us and we love you!
