A nice surprise…

when I turned over the bowl the fudge came in to find that it was a Mary Ann Baker collectible ‘Holly Bowl’  listed on eBay and Etsy for $15.

I felt almost like I should return the bowl to the hospital.  My sister talked me out of that notion.  The bowl is beautiful and in perfect condition.  I will fill it with miniature Christmas balls next month.  Right now I have Halloween candy bars in it since I didn’t have one single trick or treater.

I hope you all have a great week.  Stay safe and be happy!

  6. I confess Beth that I know little or nothing about these kind of collectibles. It certainly a lovely little bowl. Do you collect things like this?
    A few trick or treaters here. Not like when I was a kid.
    Thank you for your comment Beth. If your the only person who visits my blog then I am happy.
