Wordless Wednesday With Linky: Mystery Box

by Dagmar Bleasdale on October 22, 2013

054Let’s be real: moving isn’t a lot of fun, but unpacking is sometimes.

I unearthed two boxes I hadn’t seen in years, and look what I found!


These are my antique, hand-painted Meissen “Zwiebelmuster” (blue onion) china dishes my mom gave me.

After I moved to America, I brought it here piece by piece every time I’d visit Germany.

Now I just have to find the perfect place for it in the Blue Cottage.

Before you link up, will you give my latest “Thrifty & Vintage Finds” link party some love?

I’m disappointed that not more people are linking up, but I keep posting it because I know it’s just a matter of time that the right people will discover this link party, plus I enjoy writing it.

If you stumble the link party or pin it, I would be really grateful. Or maybe you know someone whose blog post would be perfect. You can help me have this party take off. Thanks abunchamus!

Oooh, I love mystery boxes. We had one like that, full of photos from my childhood, I had never seen, and a box of china, from when my Mum died and it was put into storage. Was a real find! :)

I know people who have been in their home for 20 years and still have an array of ‘mystery boxes’ :)

Ich liebe das Geschirr. Meine Mutter hat genau das gleiche, welches meiner Oma früher gehörte.

Liebe Grüße aus Deutschland,

So pretty! My mom is still storing the Finnish china that will go to me. I want to find a perfect spot for it as well!

That’s the fun part of moving. I also love being able to reorganize everything!

Love that German china. I collect German china too, mostly from the Bavaria area.
