Take good care of my baby. . .
Be just as kind as you can be.
And if you should discover,
That you don’t really love her. . .
Just send my baby back home to me!
Oh my friends, I could hardly wait to get home and share this special find. I have really missed you and can’t wait to come visit.
Now for the story behind the pictures and lyrics.
At one of the yard sales we went to in St. George I spied this gallon size baggie on a table full of stuff.
The words ‘old blanket’ immediately caught my eye.
Tucked inside and hidden under the doilies is where I found this treasure.
When I took it out of the bag I could hardly believe my eyes. Like many of you, I swear I heard angels singing.
Now here’s the kicker. When I took the bag up to pay for it the girl (who I would guess to be in her 30’s) said, “enjoy that blanket, it was mine as a baby and my grandmother made it for me.”
I gasped and said, “Oh my gosh, are you sure you want to sell it?” A few of my friends gathered round and said the same thing. She replied, “now ladies”. indicating that she didn’t want us to talk her back into saving it. I said, at least tell me your name, so I can think of you every time I look at it.
She replied, “Terry”.
Sweet Terry, thank you for this treasure. I will cherish and love it dearly. After I got home I thought that I should have given her my number in case she ever changed her mind. But then, if I hadn’t nabbed it someone else would have.
It’s hard for me to understand how someone could part with such a cherished item. But then, it’s a good thing that not everyone has emotional attachments. If they did there would be no treasures for us to find, right?
Here’s the cute doilies inside. Talk about a lot of bang for your buck. Can you believe, $3 for all this?
Two of them are runners. I soaked them all in Biz this morning and they came out beautiful. A few minor stains on a couple.
Hope you had a wonderful weekend!
