A new addition!

Welcome to my blog!  Just had to share our "new" addition!  I have been waiting and waiting for months for this.  As silly as it may sound to some, I have had little visions of what I thought it might look like.

If you are a "thrifter" as I am, at times, you can probably relate to my story.  I have (secretly) been in a hunt for this item.  I wasn't looking for any particular look, or color-just wanted it to be glass.  Thrift stores have not had any. I did come across the bottom part of one, but not close enough for my vision.   Many yard sales I stopped at---just hoping and hoping.  Have you ever done that?  Looking back, some may suggest counseling!

Friday, I headed out on my mission of getting a Christmas tree together to give to a sweet lady, whom is having hard times right now.  I was driving down the street I see this huge YARD SALE sign. (now you should know I could not pass it up!)  It appeared to be a moving sale not so much a yard sale but hey, it was all out there for the "search".  After minutes of looking around, not finding anything I could not live without, I spotted a plastic tub full of mismatched dishes.  I do not need dishes, my family will tell you that, but there is something inside me that thinks I need to save some old dishes---why, I have no idea.  I walked up to the tub, picked up a placemat that was on top and there it was..... My heart skipped a beat, it was racing, could this be true.  Gosh, I checked it for cracks (seriously, even if I found a crack I would have taken it--silly silly me) it was in perfect condition.  I take it, walk up to the lady in charge, she was busy setting more things out, and ask how much, she quickly blurts out....oh give me .50 cents!  Heck yea!  Not only was it what I have been looking for months, it is glass, no cracks, nothing wrong with it.  You bet I gave her her money and carefully walked back to my vehicle and as though caressing it, gently placed it on the seat.  Here she butter dish!  She reminds me of when we were growing up, sitting at the table...(sigh) Isn't she a beauty?

May y'all have a great week.  Thanks for taking time to stop by.

Enjoy,   Jen.
