Vintage glass

As a child, I was very fond of these tiny plates. It meant somebody was celebrating a birthday, and it meant we were to have something that would taste great!

Every birthday, they would appear from the cupboards at aunties' and and grannies' homes. Do I love them because of their elegance? Of their gold and white colours? Or because of the cakes and chocolate they were filled with?

Anyhow, after some hunting, I found them at my local goodwill store. The proceeds will go to buying sheep for poor people in Armenia. Isn't that a very good reason to buy there? I absolutely think so, and never feel guilty when shopping there!

The result? I bought two of these plates, glued them together with strong glue, and now they can be used for... chocolates and cakes, again!!
