Fun Monday

Hosted today by my friend Melli

Show me (or tell me about) that ONE item in your house that you would just LOVE to put in the next neighborhood yard sale – or take to the dump – but that for SOME reason you just “can’t”… and share the reason too!

fruit cornicopia vase/pitcher

gift from the heart

Some gifts are too precious to ever give away or throw away. This pitcher/vase was a Christmas gift from one of my sons. He bought it for me at a thrift shop (so SOMEONE had given it away) because he knew I liked pretty things. It has been on display for about 6 years now.

My own mother has kept a glazed dish on her dresser that holds tiny odds and ends, made by me in elementary school. The color is a lovely periwinkle, but the pottery itself is painful to look at unless you are a mother or the child who fashioned it with her own hands.
