I LOVE that little sheep Laura .... it reminds me of the one Carole has just made.....and, I just wish to send Mr Flea's mum a very happy 90th birthday. What a wonderful couple they must be and what stories they must tell. I absolutely adore the pieces of silk and lace from Mr Flea's great Grandmother's wedding dress. How wonderful to have that precious memento. If only we saved more little mementos for future generations.
Enjoy your time with your dad and your parents-in-law and send Mr Flea's mum belated birthday wishes from Jackie in the UK . XXXX

The Blue Farmhouse said...

This is one of those finds that you just can't resist taking home and you place it with some of your other treasures both big and small. And when you caught a glimpse of it you smile and remember how fun "thrifting" can be. Baa.baa... for now.:)

Linda Starr said...

Lots of detail in the sheep, you've tempted me to go back to thrifting, but I have to stay I am such a collector.

Hi Laura!
This little guy {gal?}
is so cute and your
pics of him/her are
really special. I wonder
if this was from a thrift
store in Florida? Loved
reading about your MIL.
There are some good
genes on both sides of
your family! My GiGi
is 94 but doesn't really
know any of us, anymore.
The fact that Rachel is
so sharp is truly a blessing.
Happy Friday and thank
you for your visit ~ always
a treat to hear from you!

xx Suzanne
