She was hiding in the wicker

The last two weeks of thrifting Thursday have been so dry...I have been tempted to give up, but this little lady smiled out at me from piles of dirty wicker. She is my first Stoneware Designs West piece that I have ever found. I just couldn't stop smiling at her and then at anyone else that looked my way...perhaps she is magic:) I don't think she was ever used...she was so dusty. I imagine her in a mid century home sitting on a shelf just smiling away at everyone that looked at her, for years and years until one day when she was all alone in the house and nobody looked anymore...bittersweet. I tend to write scenarios in my mind about every piece I find...that is a trait I picked up from my Mother, I used to tease her about it all the it makes me smile and miss her at the same time. I guess I know how this little lady felt. What did you find this week??? Did it tell you a story?
