My Pink Saturday post is very simple this week,
but features one of my favorite, and quite interesting pieces, to me....
I have long desired to start a collection of Hotel China.
I love the emblems and the weightiness of it. (Is that even a word? LOL)
Unfortunately, I only have one piece, but it has quite a significance.
Years ago, I bought a trash can or some kind of canister at an auction. When bidding on it, I assumed it was empty.
However, there were several nice items inside, this HOTEL CAPE FEAR plate being one of them.
Imagine my pleasant surprise! :)
I don't know near the history of Wilmington as Kevin does, he lived in the Historic District for years when he was young.
In 1974, when Kevin was around 6-7 years old, he sat on the sidewalk across from the HOTEL CAPE FEAR with his Grandaddy Coot, and watched it being demolished.
Now wasn't that a coincidence?
For more PINK Saturday, please visit Beverly, at How Sweet the Sound.
Hope you are all having a great weekend so far!
Thanks for the encouragement on the wallpaper removal project.
The chocolate brown isn't working too well, but I have a plan B, so stay tuned....
