Stop the Car!!!
It must have been my lucky day:)
There in the middle of the road was a “Grain Scoop”.
Now, I always make fun of my hubby when he stops along side the road
to inspect whatever it is in the ditch. It must have rubbed off on me
because I did the same thing.
I have no idea how I even spotted the thing, I was riding with
my parents to a neighboring town in the back seat of a min van.
You know one of those kind that have the shades that come down over
the back windows? (And they were down)
Well some how I spotted her.
I think it was mean to be.
Luckily I didn’t scare my step Dad to death when I
“Stop the Car”
He dutifully stopped, “I said back up” which he did, and then
I instructed my Mom to open her door and pick it up.
Wow, now that I tell it I sound kinda bossy.
Let’s just say I squealed with delight when she handed it back to me.
My step Dad got a good laugh, he didn’t see
why I thought it was such a treasure.
I couldn’t wait to get home to decide how I would decorate with it.
My lavender was in full bloom and I thought the
purple against the red handle would be a smashing pair.
I proudly displayed my Grain Scoop filled with Lavender
in the living room on an end table.
I think decorating with the unexpected is sometimes
better than if you had planned
