Hopefully, each of you will have a really good Monday.
Unfortunately, Google will not let me leave comments on blogs. As soon as I write them, they get gobbled up. It no longer matters if I try to send comments from "Anonymous" with my blog address. They get eaten up, too.
It's so discouraging but please know that I do TRY to leave comments. Hope this won't last long.
Recently, I've made a determination to try to buy less things from China. This decision is nothing personal toward the Chinese people. It's just that I'd like to give other countries, especially the United States, equal opportunity to share at least one consumer's money.
Now, our very pretty but older crystal salt and pepper containers had silver tops that looked awful. Over time, they rusted and became bent. They needed replacing.
While shopping at Marshall's this weekend, my eyes spotted a small box with the words "Oleg Cassini" on the top. Even though I never heard of ol' Oleg, the box looked nice and rather intriguing.
Picking it up off the shelf, I opened it up and inside were very beautiful crystal salt and pepper shakers. There were no tops to worry about as each shaker is made entirely of chrystal with little holes in the tops. Immediately, I loved the way they looked.
Flipping the box over, there was a bargain price tag of $5.00.
That night, while online, I checked Google to see where P.R.C. was located. Much to my blushing face, it means "Peoples Republic of China." It hurts to have these ignorant moments, don't you think?
Oh well, the shakers look nice and have quite a bit of sparkle to them that proved difficult to display in photos.
Looks like people the world over are "the salt" of the earth.
DO YOU TRY TO BUY THINGS MADE IN THE USA?
