Raise your hand if you were completely enamored with the Little House Books as a girl growing up?
Remember at the end of The First Four Years when the Wilder's home burns down and the only thing that survives is the oval glass platter that says:
Give us this day our daily bread ?
Since reading that book as a young girl I had always hoped to own one some day. I remember my Aunt Jamie had a pewter dish with the same words and hoping for one just like hers.
Today, on a typewriter mission for our five-year old paper boy, I entered our local thrift store and found:
Just like Aunt Jamie's.
Sadly, this was part of an entire pewter set.
I left the rest there and am now having major guilt feelings, like I broke up a happy family of pewter.
Maybe Saturday will bring me a recovery mission at the thrift store . . .
Oh, and hopefully a typewriter for my little man, too.
