Like a child...
Earlier this week, I enjoyed another birthday.
And last week, a big box arrived with a note on the outside that said: "For photographing your amazing knitting creations, Happy Birthday! We love you so big -- bigger than the sky, to the moon and back! Amanda, Jerry, Alex and Roo*"
While saving it to open on my birthday (I like my prizes ON my birthday... takes some of the sting out of being another year older!), I was SURE it was a tripod since mine toggles like a dashboard bobble-head jostling down the brick streets.
I was soooo surprised and delighted when I realized it was a dress form!! Evan was baffled for awhile as he pulled out the pieces to assemble... but, I knew in a heartbeat!!
Now, after you have planted yourself firmly on the far side of the mid-century mark, there aren't that many prizes that make you jump up like a child with a new toy; but, this one did!!
I had her draped and out on the porch... with her little black cover on and off... you can see the lint from the black, but I was too excited to slow down and pick them off before taking more photos...
Believe me... you have been spared. There were lots more. ;)
Thank you so MUCH, my Little Men and Co.!! Noni played like a kid for a morning!
So true... So true... (as a matter of fact, this was another sweet and precious prize from the same crew... awhile ago... still treasured.)
I wish for each of you to find some child-like joy in your day! blessings ~ tanna
