Hey again!

I know it’s hot as hades right now (at least it is in the armpit … I mean … HEART of Texas). Who wants to think about snuggling up with a cozy afghan next to the fireplace?

With my hot flashes, not me. But I’ve been wanting to share this special treasure with y’all since I started this blog. I’ve had so much else going on (what with husband-bashing and all) that this is the first chance I’ve had.

Back in February, I believe (memory’s a bitch since chemo and anesthesia!), I was visting my sister in Fort Worth (hi Belinda!). She took me to an AWESOME antique mall with a very quaint little tea room called The Secret Garden.

After having our own little “sister tea party” of quiche and fruit and tiny muffins (and of course, tea!), we started browsing the aisles and aisles (and aisles!) of treasures. Oh my. I was in heaven. Too bad I didn’t take any pictures that day … sorry.

However, I did find the most gorgeous afghan in the world. The WHOLE wide world. I was walking by this booth, and something pink caught my eye (as always). It was tucked waaaay under something else and all I could manage to see was a single pink crocheted rose.

By this time, my spider senses were tingling. I gently (or maybe not-so-gently, now that I think about it) removed the crap on top of my buried treasure … and oh.my.gawd. There it was. The most beautiful creature I’d ever seen … other than my three children. 🙂 I won’t even try to describe the afghan … because the pictures pretty much do it justice.

I knew it was mine before I ever saw the price tag. I was thrilled to discover it was only $25!!! But then something made the entire experience even better. My sister walked up and took it from me.

“Let me buy this as your birthday present.”

So, being the good little sister that I am, I let her. 🙂 My birthday wasn’t until April, but I got to take it home with me and start enjoying it immediately. Thanks, Belinda!

Where did I put the lovely? I draped it over my bed’s headboard. And no, hubby didn’t like it. Kept bumping his pillows on it, which caused it to fall over on his head in the middle of the night. Did I mention that this afghan is unusually heavy? It is. So far, no concussions or asphyxiations.

I suppose I could go on and on (verbosity runs in my family … my mother’s side), but I’ll spare you anymore pain. Enjoy the pics!!!
