Today, Writing Straight from the Heart is joining Junkin Finds from Linda's blog, A La Carte , http://www.alacarte.blogspot.com/ and Show and Tell Friday from Cindy's blog, My Romantic Home, http://www.myromantichome.blogspot.com/ Give yourself a holiday treat by visiting both of these blogs when you have a few free minutes. You will be so glad you did.
Last spring, while driving along a street in a fairly upscale neighborhood, my eyes zoomed over to the side of the road.
Two adorable childrens' rockers had been placed on the strip of green grass in front of a ranch house. Pretty good-sized Easter bunnies, one yellow and pastel green, sat on the rockers.
Passing the bunnies and chairs, I drove about a block and turned the car around. Luckily, a teenager driving in our car had more nerve than me. He agreed to go up to the door of the house and ask if the chairs and bunnies were being given away. They were!
When I heard they were free, I hopped out of my car, opened the trunk, and stuffed them inside.
Seriously, the chairs are in perfect condition without as much as a scratch on them. They are solid and heavy. Why in the world anyone would just give them away is beyond my imagination but I'm not going to question it.
This holiday season, animated animals who sing and move when their paws are pressed, sit in one of the chairs. Two sweet doll babies grace the other chair. (If you want to read about the dolly in the red dress, check this blog for Monday, December 13th. The archive can be found right in the sidebar.)
It's really true. Bargains are good at any time of the year but freebies are even better!
Happy holidays to all!
