I'm not sure if you would call it stalking,
but a year or so ago, I found a pretty pitcher
that I took a liking to
in a flea market in Nevada, Missouri
But it was pricey -- $50.00
And did I need a pitcher?
Of course, I didn't and so it stayed.
Every time I went to Nevada for lunch and shopping with
friend Shirley Ann, I would visit "my" pitcher.
And there it stayed.
$50.00 was really too much for a pitcher in a small flea market in a little town!
After about 8 months, it was marked down to $39.00
And I continued to visit
Enamored by the pretty little pitcher.
I even got so bold one visit to ask
the person behind the counter, if they would take less.
The answer was "no".
So I left it.
Then this month, I decided that I really wanted that pitcher.
A want for a year is not an impulse buy
And so friend Shirley Ann was tasked in picking up the pitcher for me and bringing it
over when she came to lunch later that week.
And now it is mine!
It's a pretty little pitcher.
I'm not sure of it's age
But when I checked on eBay for similar pitchers, it was listed as "Victorian"
And, of course, you can believe everything you read on eBay!
It's hand blown but into a mold not free style
for it has a pontil on the bottom
And this wonderful "lacy" top
And some great decoration on the bottom of the pitcher
Some green and gold
It does look quite handsome filled with iced tea!
And I treated friend Shirley Ann to tea on the porch.
It's cooler this week.
And I baked lemon blueberry scuffins to nibble on while we drank tea
