Remember my last post
where I was adoring and longing for Emily's Swan Light ?
Well ..... Mr E has come up trumps and I am so delighted with my perfect gift !!!!!
Two vintage china swans - just right for popping in a tealight or two - I LOVE THEM SO MUCH !!!!!
Mr E spotted them in a charity shop
and one evening we stopped off when the shop was closed
and he showed me them - ( cue whoops of desire and the obligatory clapping of hands from me )
He asked me if I liked them - I think the answer was, hmmmmm, YES !!!!!
The shop was closed - so we simply had to return home
The both of us being so busy, and not passing by the shop during opening times
the swans just sat in the window and
I hoped that they would stay there until I could pass by and get them
Then ..... the other evening
moving slowly in traffic
I passed by the shop and as I glanced into the window
there was a gap - a swan tealight sized gap - THEY WERE GONE !!!!!
I was gutted - but weirdly was happy that someone had seen them and given them a new home
YEP - I honestly feel like this about vintage things
So - back home - and greeted by the face I love ( gosh that was proper slushy )
and after my usual verbal chatter of the day
Mr E went to get me a gift
YAY, WHOOP, CLAP HANDS
I love gifts !!!!!
He presented me with some sketch books - LUSH !!!!!
I can never get enough sketch and notebooks in my life
Underneath the books in his hand
!!!!! THE SWANS !!!!!
Mr E - you simply rock my world !!!!!
So thoughtful, so sweet and so I LOVE my new vintage finds
