Once upon a time there was a lady named Rebecca who loved to shop for white
junque treasures. Whenever she had a free moment she would visit as many second-hand shops as possible in hopes of finding gently loved pretties wonderful new homes...
Her favorite little friends come in all shapes and sizes. Some are new...but not many. Most have been abandoned for one reason or another~ :(
Her little friends speak to her in the faintest of whispers, but Rebecca still hears them!
"Rebecca! We've been so excited about seeing you again!
GET OVER HERE GIRLFRIEND!!!!
Here we are! Come get us!
We've been waiting for you to come back for soooo long now! We've been
jumping up and down sitting perfectly still just hoping for a chance to come and live at your white house! We've all tried to look as unattractive as possible so no one else would try and take us home! We are counting on you to show us lots of love by giving us a warm bath before shining us up to perfection! We can't wait for you to rescue us from these shabby, dusty, grimy thrift store shelves! They are bulging and overflowing with
Miss Lefton Tureen continued:
I cost only $4.99! I'm a three piece steal of a deal and I know you can't live without me!
Will you please put me in your cart..xoxoxo"
Rebecca just said:
Miss Lefton Tureen should have been joyous but instead she was broken-hearted over the thought of leaving her BFF, Miss Rosy Pot behind! And since Rebecca didn't want her to crack under the disappointment she said:
"Even though you're a sassy little thing you make my heart sing! OK! You can come, too!"
Just then Rebecca noticed Miss Rosy Pot begin to pout! She wanted her latest vintage friend, Miss Vaseola to come, too! She begged for her to be included!
Rebecca thought for a minute and then said:
"I think Miss V is worth ninety-nine cents!!! OK...you can come! But you're going to have to share a room!
As Rebecca rounded the last corner of the store she heard one last tiny voice call out to her...
"Rebecca! OVER HERE! Don't forget me! My name is Miss Tubby and won't take up too much room! You can put pretty soaps inside me and I'll make your bathroom smell wonderful!
Can I come live at your house, too??? I'm cheap! I, too, cost only ninety-nine cents!"
Rebecca smiled big and was sure she could find a place for Miss T! And so she said:
"Um....OK! Sure you can come! Just don't beg to bring your friends!!!"
Rebecca drove home happy and content.
The lost and forgotten had been found.
Hope your day was mah-vah-LESS!
Love to you...
