In the same display case at Gather where I found the sweet silver perfume vial that I showed you yesterday...I saw this tiny brass colored metal matchbox. When I asked Deanna the cost... she gave me a look and then put it in the bag with my other treasures. Deanna's that kind of gal. I knew just what I would do with it...
This tiny ceramic mouse has been kicking around since Kate, now 23, was just a little girl. She used to tag along with me on my flea marketing adventures and, as a born animal lover, had a penchant for all sorts of little animal figurines... Over the years she collected an entire menagerie of tiny ceramic treasures... This little mouse looks right at home!
Tomorrow night, I hope to fix a nice dinner, share a glass of wine...
...and then perhaps snuggle up on the sofa with Santa Baby and a good movie... ...I would like to watch a nice romantic comedy or a Jane Austen favorite... Him? not so much...
I am sure we will be able to come to an agreement! :)
Hoping my replacement power adapter arrives before my laptop and battery fails... ...it's a bit of a race against time! If I should disappear for a day or two...that will be why!
To live content with small means.... To seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion.... To be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich.... To study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly.... To listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart.... To bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never.... In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common.... ...........this is to be my symphony.
Thank you to all the kindred spirits and kind souls who take the time to leave a comment......Your support and encouragement are deeply appreciated.....I read each and every message and as time allows, do my best to reply.
