This blog is about an unbelievable event (at least to me.) For about the past 10 years, my mom, sister, and I have been getting together once a week. (That's not the unbelievable part.) Tuesday was declared Mommy's Day Out. After we discovered that we are all grandmothers, we declared it Grannies Day Out.
Anyway, on this particular Grannies Day Out, we found ourselves in an antique/flea market barn. But, wait! I'm getting ahead of my story.
About 15 years ago, Hubby and I were in a major remodeling project of our house. I had been inspired after watching The Carol Duvall Show,and had decided to decorate the kitchen in sunflowers, using blue and yellow. I made seat cushions and place mats with sunflowers.
Shortly after the kitchen project was finished, my mom presented me with this tea pot. I loved it!
She also made this cross stitch sign for me. I was hooked on sunflowers.
Now, back to Grannies Day Out and the antique/flea market shop. We were sauntering around each little shop. Talking, joking, laughing, and touching everything. We wandered into a shop with lots of dishes, and my eyes spotted this:
|This is a poor re-creation of the shop!|
Apparently, it was my "lucky" day, because I also found this cute little guy. He jumped up and said, "Take me home with you! Take me home with you!" What could I do? He was only $8.
He's so happy in his new home. And he makes me smile.
