some things...

...why is it that sometimes you see something and you know you don't "need" it, but you just have to "have" it? That's the case with this little copper Whale! He's just adorable and totally, undeniably, irresistible! Plus, he's teeny tiny, so he's not taking up a whole lot of room [unlike his "real" Whale ancestors]. So I saw him for the first time yesterday at the thrift store. He was sitting in the glass case all alone [or so I thought]. I decided I didn't "need" him, so I didn't get him. But over the course of the evening, I thought about him time and time again. And when I woke up this morning, I was thinking of him still. I decided after lunch I would go back to the thrift store and see if he was still there and, if so, I would get him. While I'm thinking this, my phone rang and it was my friend Paula. She was at the thrift store and saw him and thought of me, so she called to tell me about him and his "friends". Friends! So I rushed right over there and there he was, in the very same place on the shelf, all alone. But, on the next shelf down, hidden in the back, were six more! *sigh* ~ so $20 later, I came home with seven little Whales!
One of the ones I got today happened to be exactly like one I already had:this little Whale was given to me by my boss when I was pregnant with Broc [over 30 years ago]. And the large wooden one is actually a box that my father-in-law made for me 28years ago! So now I have a whole little "pod" of Whales and they are all breaching quite happily in my curio cabinet. It's a happy day, indeed!
Happy Thursday!!

  1. That is so cool that your friend phoned you!
    I don't usually want much (except beads) but when I do, I know that I must get it.


Thanks for your comments ~ ♥
