This past Saturday, while I was in this little consignment shop, the Gristmill Emporium, I found these two sweet wooden swans. Well for some reason I only bought one, the smaller one, and I spent the rest of the weekend kicking myself for not buying both. I'm sure you know that feeling.
So I kept my fingers, toes, eyes and anything else I have two of crossed, that come today when the store reopened, I could run back and buy my little swan's big brother.
The store opened its doors at 11 am, and I was in the parking lot by 11:10. I got out of my car and as I walked toward the building this beautiful blue colored vase, which was sitting on an outside display, immediately caught my eye.
I quickly picked it up to investigate, but when I looked inside I realized that my beautiful vase was not a vase at all. It had a soap dish in it. My lovely blue vase is actually a bathroom trash can! But you know what, I didn't care. A vision is a vision, and all I knew was that I could definitely see it filled with a huge bouquet of spring flowers sitting on my Easter table!
With the "vase" under my arm I made my way inside the shop, and there he was, the second swan, right on the floor where he had been on Saturday. I grabbed him and paid the sweet little lady at the register for both my new "vase" and wood swan.
Now not only have the two swans been reunited but I am also the proud owner of a beautiful new "vase", and this makes mama one very happy lady!!!
Wishing you a blessed Easter week!
