A Vintage Farmwife
Yesterday, when I went to a friend's house, she gave me this.....
She called it a "pity gift".
She and her 3 daughters give them to each other when something unpleasant happens and they need a little lift.
I was tickled to get it because I really DID need a lift!
Inside, I found.....
Isn't this the cutest candle ever? I love the tea-stained cheesecloth, the old jar, the brown paper label, and the old string. It smells good, too!
I put in on the shelf in front of my ironstone platter and beside my tan crock-bowl.
I like the idea of a gift-just-because. I'm going to keep my eyes open for someone who could use a pick-me-up and try to pay it forward.
Here's to friends who notice!
