I wasn't watching Felix The Cat,
BUT, my heart DID go Pitter Pat!!!
The same garage sale I told you about where my husband found the hand painted china had these 4 cross-stitched napkins, outlined with blue. They were so sweet I couldn't pass them up!
And at the store we found before the garage sale??
This was where I just about lost it.
There, on a shelf up high, as part of a display for all the world to see,
just sitting there waiting for me to eye them, were FIVE
of these lovely delicate handpainted beauties:
I stood there and watched for my husband to come my way so that he could get someone to help me get them down.
The lady got a ladder, and not very carefully started to hand them to me.
"Please Lord, please don't let them break" I prayed!!!
"Oh, aren't they cute" she says. "Yes, I thought so too" I answered. Carefully I cradled them next to my heart all the way to the front.
I paid for them and conquered the urge to holler
"START THE CAR!!!!!"
What a blessing to find!!
(But be sure and come back and join me for this week's Pearls and Lace starting Wednesday evening. I'll have Mr. Linky ready!!!)
I decided that Monday Parties were the perfect chance.
