I mentioned the other day that I had found a thrift store in my new town. The store is little and it smells......really bad. But how can I not like it when I found this the very first time I visited?
Here is a little detail. I was pleased that it still had the hardware attached. I'm going to use it to decorate in our master bedroom. Maybe I will put some of those new "wall words" on each window. I thought about putting a photograph in each window. Maybe these. How would I attached them without tape or other adhesive showing? Any ideas?
See? It is upside down.
The friendship stitching and figurine are from my sweet friend Pamela from KS. We are forever friends. The little baby doll is from my friend Molly. What a special gift to remember a special friendship. (Sorry, Molly. I found the blue jar as I was unpacking. I'm going to keep it. Good memories.) As I am typing this it makes me think of all the other special friends I've left behind. Maybe I will jot down names and memories on bits of paper and put them in the jar. Yes, I think I will do that. A little memory jar!
My friend Sheri gave me the green glass memory ball one year for Christmas. The sheet music is some that I bought at a flea market just the other day. I thought this one above was a good reminder to see every day.
My parents were here this week. We got a lot accomplished and had a great time. I'll try to take pictures of the decorating mom and I did. I never would have gotten so much done without her. For now I need to get off the computer. I have been on here too long already.
