deer lucky

 

 Serendipity, fate or good old fashioned luck bought this little deer to me on Monday. I'd seen one just like it at an antiques hall months back, just like it except for the fact that that little deer had a badly chipped head. I still wanted it, chip and all, and asked the price. Not for sale, was the reply. Not for anything.  The owner was using it as a holder for his business cards.

 You know when something sticks in your head? I searched on Ebay, I Googled 'deer card holder' and... nothing. 

 Then Monday lunchtime, browsing in a charity shop with Edie and gasp, there it was, perfect and chippless and desperate to come home with me. Like lost treasure.

 We were clearly meant to be, the dear card holder and I.

 Sweet isn't it? Have you ever found some treasure you thought to be long lost?

  1. That's some sweet serendipity. It'd perfect with the business cards in it.

    Thanks for your comment on my quiz - I'm guessing there must be some B and D answers in there?

    1. They wouldn't last 2 minutes in this house! Whenever I put chocolates or sweets into little bowls say at Xmas or Easter there are there an hour tops. No self control.

  3. That is adorable!
    One time at a garage sale, I found perfect cigar boxes from the 1940s for only a dollar each. I bought two :)
