It's been an interesting week around here! First of all, April sent me amazing photos of the girls shopping. There are many more photos (all of them wonderful!) so we think they might have to have a blog of their own. Stay tuned!
If you read this blog regularly, you might remember that last year a mockingbird sang most of every night in a tree over our house from May until August. He was LOUD and am unhappy to report he is BACK. He starts singing around three a.m. and continues until sunrise.
Although I am feeling a little hostile due to lack of sleep, I have to admire this kind of tenacity. So, instead of being angry, I made a spun cotton bird in his image and will resist the urge to stick pins in it. I also made that little burro.
While looking for something else, I found the missing baby from a previous post. It has been in a box for about a decade. I wanted to show it to April and e-mailed her this photo.
April e-mailed me back within moments. She took a photo of my Jane with the same little glass pitcher! What are the chances of two people owning this Depression era Scottie? They were giveaways in cereal boxes meant for kids to use. April and I have never met in person but we frequently discover coincidences.
