A New Soup Tureen - Show and Tell Friday

Pin It Now!

Welcome to Show and Tell Friday! A nice neighbor of mine that has never read my blog or never been in my apartment saw this soup tureen at an antique store bought it for me! He's only walked by my apartment before but he thought it looked like something I might like. 
I'm on a main walkway so everyone can see in!  I told him I feel like I live in a fishbowl so on my birthday he gave me a fishbowl with gold fish!  They lasted about a week...I'm not good with keeping those alive and honestly although it was a nice gesture, I thought my goldfish days were long gone now that my kids are grown!

As you can see from my photo below I collect white soup tureens!
I wanted to put this one in with the others in my blue cabinet but it's too big! I'll always find a place for a new soup tureen though! 
 Now I think I'll have a soup party for some of my nice neighbors! 
Thanks to all of you that join in on Show and Tell Friday every week and thanks to all of you who leave such nice comments!

Note: Sorry for not having this post up at my usual time...6pm PT on Thursday night but the SF Giants are in the playoffs and I've been preoccupied with that!  I'm actually writing this post as I watch the game! Go Giants!

You may not be too happy in your new digs. However, you have a very nice neighbor. At the end of the day, it's the people in our lives that bring us joy. Regardless of his intentions, pay it forward!!

Oh Cindy, I think he is your utmost admirer, lol! I adore white tureens and your gifted one is gorgeous! I have a lovely one my mom gave me many years ago...course, I have very many with a pattern and another elegant white from my Noritake dishes.
Thanks for the party and have a lovely weekend.

What a great story. I love that he had peeked into your place often enough to know what you liked. How funny! Maybe he was trying to catch a glimpse of YOU?!! Have a wonderful weekend- xo Diana

I agree that it sounds like he likes you a lot. But I sure wonder why you don't put up lace curtains for privacy!
