Did you have a fabulous weekend?
I did. It was full of treasure–cakes to bake, parties to attend, food to eat, conversations to be had, laughter to laugh … you know, that sort of thing.
Saturday a friend of the family invited my mom and I to the estate sale of her “parents.” It didn’t take me long to realize the lady of the house was a kindred spirit. Her house was bright and cheery; her belongings proof she loved sharing her home. If I didn’t have to save money for such silly things as bills, I could have gone hog-wild–beautiful silver pitchers, platters, and bowls … covered ceramic bakers … around every corner I would GASP! – point – and sigh.
You know, estate sales can be a tad melancholy. After all, it’s someone’s life, up for sale. But in this instance I had but to look around to see the former owners had truly lived while alive.
And I have a sneaking suspicion their spirit will live on in a little silver cream & sugar set … ready for more family dinners, more teas for friends. Sure, the faces may change, but the love, laughter and memories will be much the same!
