I headed for the household wares first. . . .as always. . . .Didn't find much there, but as I passed by the toys on my way to clothing, I glanced down the aisle and there sat the little blue chair. . . .pulled out in the middle as if a child had been sitting there and had just left for a minute. . . .I'm sure it would have been in someone's cart other than mine had it been in the household section. . . .
The cross-stitch towel is another thrifty find from a while back. . . .as is the vintage porcelain basket. . . .Everything came together beautifully.
As excited as I was to find the little blue chair, I was even more excited when I spotted this sweet little blue dress in the baby clothes section. . . .vintage, of course. . . .
Gave me the opportunity to tell you the news. . . .
It's a Girl!
John's daughter and her husband have another sweet little girl--Sarah Lynn. . . .They live in Virginia, so we've only seen photos of her. . . .Hopefully, there will be a trip to Virginia soon. . . . In celebration of the event, I had already chosen several vintage baby dresses and hung them on a clothesline in the corner of the bath. . . .
I had pink, yellow, and white. . . .no blue. . . .Wouldn't you know it--Goodwill had one!
Isn't it sweet hanging with the others? . . . The blue vintage hanger was mine. . . .I found it among our baby items in Mom's cedar chest. . . .I never knew Mom to be sentimental. . . .yet, the last few weeks while going through her stored boxes and the cedar chest, I've found several memories she kept. . . .She wasn't a pack rat like me, but I guess she did have her moments. . . .
The Goodwill finds fit right in with the baby things I've had on my mind and in my décor lately. . . .Sentimental. . . .Remembering. . . .Anticipation. . . .Joy. . . .Thoughts and ponderings on the ever present Circle of Life. . . .
