Just Another Sweet Find

This is another Goodwill find for the Maisy homestead.

I couldn't pass it up.

Oh how I just love her.

Look at her detail.
All those swirlys and twirlys.

She said to me in the store...
"Take me home. Show me some love. Give me a real family."
So I did.

I'm not sure if you can read this.
It was hand made in 1979
Who would have thought that when I was 10 years old, well actually 9 years old...just days from my 10th birthday, that a perfect stranger would make a handmade item and that 30 years later it would end up in my WHITE...yes i'm still giddy, kitchen?

For some reason my brain sometimes like these sideways photos.

So, now you ask, what was the price?


That's right...that is not a typo.
You say "SHUT UP....did you really only pay $2.99 for that?"
I say "YEP."
Can you see me do my dance....... The I SPAVED dance??

Oh, she is simply adorable with her swirlies and twirlies.......I would have snatched it up too, had I been the one to find it. Not snatched it FROM you of course, but you might have gotten the evil eye....just saying. :)

sweet pitcher - you're going to be OH-SO happy. Miss Amy takes such good care of her things - and has the perfect eye to place you somewhere you will be at your best angle.

welcome! (i think she needs a name...)

Oh, that is fabulous and was just made for your new kitchen. $2.99--I'm jealous!

Just lovely!

I love the pitcher but what I love more is that you think the same way I do! I think it's so cool that you appreciate the fact that it was made when you were just a young girl and now here it is 30 years later in your loving hands!
