My mailbox has overflowed this week. Goodness from my sweet friend Heidi. This is the loveliness she bestowed up on me and this is what I sent her. Great minds think alike when it comes to trying to send your friend an Easter "surprise"! (Excuse my lack of photos myself as this week has not had me thinking clearly). Thank you Miss Heidi!
Also, every week at Two Dog Pond, the talented Rachel posts a funny vintage photo and everyone offers up ideas for a caption to fit the photo. At the end of the week, she picks a winner and sends them a beautiful soldered necklace with the photo on one side and the caption on the back.
Last week the photo was this:
When I saw this photo, the first thing that popped into my head was, "Who's the hoe now?" (Not the correct spelling of 'ho or hoe, but that's beside the point.) I don't know why this popped into my head or why I even had the nerve to actually post it, because it isn't very "nice"! But, it looks like he smarted off and called her a 'ho and she whipped him around and was teaching him a lesson. "Oh yea, who's the ho, NOW?" And, she looks like she is plowing the garden with him. Like a hoe.
Anyway, I suppose you have already figured out that:
The note attached said it cracked her up.
It is a beautiful necklace and I love the vintage photo. I wore it today to the Memorial service because it was new and I wanted to enjoy it.
I got pretty nervous when someone grabbed it and said, "WOW! That's neat!" Luckily, they didn't turn it over. Now, that would have been difficult to explain! So, thank you Rachel! Now all of you - go win a beautiful necklace!
I've also been the lucky recipient of one of Elizabeth Holcombe's divine pincushions and a lovely Vintage Easter Swap from Joan. I am sorry that my post is lacking the photos of all these fabulous items. Bad blogger.
I hope everyone has a lovely Easter. Ours will be quiet - The Bean still likes to color eggs and make cupcakes. I am grateful for that, because I know that everything we do is important. I am grateful for him.
And grateful for all of YOU! Thanks again. And, Happy Easter!
