Scavenger Hunt

My friend over at Simply Stork decided to do a scavenger hunt to help out those with writer's block. As I've been blue the last few days and haven't had much to say I thought I'd jump in and give it a try. So today's hunt was to include these three things:

1. Something with a story behind it:
2. Something that brings comfort:
3. Something that comes in small packages:

So here goes:

1. This was my first Depression Glass pitcher given to me by my husband. I had seen it in a sweet little antique store while we were on a camping trip on the coast (4 hours from home) about 12 years ago. I fell in love with it but being the frugal person that I am I would not spend so much on something just for me. Many months later he surprised me with it for my birthday. I was just shocked that he kept that secret for so long!!!

A cup of tea always makes me feel better. The smell just soothes my senses and the sweet creamy taste just makes everything fine. This morning I had a headache and I just really wanted that yummy Cream Earl Grey!! It made my headache go away.

Something that came in a small package: Esther - of course!! She was just few hours old in the photo and her ears were the size of a quarter (really!!). At just over 6 pounds she was just a peanut.Wow!! Has she changed!! Now a wiggly, squishy chubby little thing!!
Head on over to Simply's place to see more fun stuff.
