big and little...


It is feeling pretty quiet around here with Mum and Clare gone after our busy weekend at the Melbourne Finders Keepers Markets. We had a crazily busy few daysand so didn't get to spend any time browsing the gorgeous shops and rummaging in favourite op shops.

In the last few weeks I purchased these two vases in local chairty shops. The big one was a bargain at $5 and the little yellow one was just too cute to leave on the shelf at $2. As a reminder of Mum's visit, I have put in the yellow one a couple of the four-leaf clovers she found while popping up the road to buy some milk. Clare and I have always been amazed at her uncanny knack at finding them. She can honestly spot a four-leaf clover in a massive patch of clover within a minute. And while she is definely not superstitiuos, she still loves the thrill of finding something that is considered so rare.

What lovely vases. Your four leaf clover tale was heart warming too, in it's simplicity and sentimental way.
