It's all coming back to me now...a flood of memories. This small candy dish...and where I found it.
Sitting here posting tonight, a flood of memories came back...memories are wonderful but they are painful too..of another life...with another person...with my children when they were in their teens and beginning to become adults...and getting married...leaving home..
We decided to go to a few garage sales for a bit today. We were on our way home when we noticed a rummage sale at a very familiar church. The church my eldest daughter was married in 35 years ago this coming May. We stopped and I bought this lead crystal candy dish for $5.00.
It is smallish and delicate and fits the living room coffee table perfectly! ...makes me smile! Look at the little feeties! :) Do you think Sandy should have it? I'll make sure she gets it one day. Probably sooner..
Being at that church today brought back memories..of Candy's shoes and jeans that drug on the ground and became ragged, "fro" hair do's and long hair that the guys wore at the wedding...and watching my first daughter walk down the isle....yes, I like this candy dish a lot!
...this precious address book, brand new, never opened for just 25 cents. It was the saying on the cover that I loved. The inside is a lovely delicate print in sunshine yellow..with tabbed pages...
I love roosters so this is probably a keeper...I don't know...
And a lamp shade! It's hard to see the pretty pattern in the shade..but it was in perfect condition for just 50 cents. I could NOT believe it. It was on a lamp and the sweet woman just took it off and sold it to me. I LOVE garage sales and you meet the dearest people.! Lamp shades are not cheap you know! :):)
But of course you know that!!
Then we stopped by Lowes's for flowers...
Flowers? Cost? A BLASTED MINT!!! But, they are perrinials and will come back every year!
Can I call that an investment? :)
I love that you stopped by! Have I told you that??
Love and hugs, (always!)
