Finds,Food and Flowers

I found this 1960's globe in the Salvos on Thursday morning complete with it's original book. I know I promised Mr VL no more globes...but it's GORGEOUS!!!
I took on the big task this Christmas of a hot lunch of turkey and pudding  and then a cold buffet in the evening of ham,atlantic salmon,cake and chocolate trifle
I was very spoiled with an ipad4

  6. I've had a fun time scrolling through your posts. The next best thing to finding your own thrift shop treasures is to see those of a fellow shopper. You've got a great eye. Onward, to new treasures to be found in 2013.

  7. Your globe collection is amazing! That salmon looks pretty tasty...I was going to do a whole one for Christmas lunch but in the end settled on prawns x

  12. Oh Meg, As soon as I opened your post I was fascinated by the header! Love your globes! When I was little we had the best globe on a stand, and on the shelf underneath was a huge dictionary. I used to get it out and look at the pictures in it and spin the globe--I wonder what happened to them? I'm coming over from Fresh Cut Friday and so happy to have found you! Linda

  13. You can't have too many globes, especially when they come with the original book:-) Your menu looks delicious. Happy 2013!!

  14. Oh my goodness, your globes are beautiful. Isn't it funny how they look so nice in a grouping? My husband would love those.

  15. The globes really are fabulous and they are so hard to find! I'm happy for you! Of course you needed it!

  16. Hi Meg and Happy New Year!
