There is a wonderful restaurant and kitchen supplies store very near us. It has everything...and I do mean everything one could want for cooking...including the kitchen sink and occasional life sized figures.
I am not sure exactly how this burro fits into the grand scheme of things. I would imagine he would be a wonderful prop in a Mexican restaurant. I wish it could come live at my house, though!
Burros/donkeys often occupy my mind. When I was in Mexico many years ago, burros wandered about country roads oblivious to cars going by and were just a friendly as can be, much to my delight.
When I was young, my family owned a burro... named Pancho. That is when my life time love of donkeys/burros started.
Recently, I acquired a
little Steiff ...
And this one was made
by a gifted artist who combined my love
mushrooms and tea!
These sort of live together
and keep each other company....
Little Edie has a 4 inch donkey
made by the late Mary Vlasak
who knew I loved Eeyore.
I even make them myself...
Sometimes I collect a tiny ones...
and I often photograph them!
The world is full of wonderful things...that is for sure. Donkeys and Belted Galloway cows are among my favorite animals. I recently found out that they are both also bred as miniature livestock...oh, to dream!
Imagine my delight at finding a burro in that kitchen store...as if it were there just for me to find! Serenditpity!
The weekend is around the corner...and hopefully our current heat wave will break today. Happy weekend and...
enjoy the day!
