It seems impossible that 18 years have passed since that horrific day in history.
We will remember all those who lost their lives as well as the brave souls who came to rescue and to help.
May the souls of those lost, rest in eternal peace.
Also, may peace reign here on earth so that such a catastrophe will never happen again.
Now, here is today's post:
(Unidentified knives and forks from the Goodwill.)
Several years ago, I came across Oneida silverware in the Michaelangelo pattern.
Of course, it's quite expensive but, at that time, I managed to take a deep breath, dip deep into my pocketbook, and purchase a set for eight people.
The silverware pattern shown below is unknown to me. Is anyone familiar with it?
From time to time, after looking in the silverware drawer, it was noticed that some forks were missing.
Then, there were a couple of spoons short of the eight we started with.
This has happened with knives, too.
Where the missing pieces went is anyone's guess.
Certainly dumping them into the trash can would be the last thing I'd ever do but maybe that's where they inadvertently landed.
We were down to four long-pronged forks and that bothered me.
Sooooooooo, in a nicely stocked Goodwill thrift shop away from where we live, I found some very pretty forks and spoons in ornate patterns.
Are they Oneida's Michaelangelo pattern? Noooooooooo.
Does it really matter if they match perfectly with the silverware in the drawer? Noooooooo
Was four for 99 cents a better price than what I paid for the Michaelangelo pattern? YESSSSSS.
If anyone knows what patterns the mismatched forks and knives are, please let me know.
DO YOU LIKE A PARTICULAR STYLE OF SILVERWARE OR ARE YOU NON-NONCHALANT WHEN IT COMES TO FORKS, KNIVES, AND SPOONS?
