Serendipity....

Today we decided it was time to take a huge pile of garden rubbish to the dump. The heap of bamboo cuttings was so big, it took two trips in my little hatchback and when we got to the tip the second time it was closed for fifteen minutes while they changed the giant containers. Rather than sit in the car and wait, we turned around and drove a couple of minutes down the road to an antique centre and had a brief look around. In a trunk in a corner, marked 'Everything Inside £1', I found this.........


It is the sweetest ceramic pot with the sky painted on in pinks and blues with bluebird transfers.


It needed a good wash and is now happily esconced in my bedroom. Behind it you can see another of my lucky finds, a ceramic box with honeycomb pattern and a bee as a handle on the lid - a few pence at a car boot sale a couple of years ago.

I just love it when a chance decision leads you to a small treasure!

Oh how lovely! I am sure that when these things happen, it is *meant to be* - you and this pot were destined for each other.
