I realized the other day that had never shared my birthday present from Dan…he sent me away for the afternoon, sans children, with a little cash in my pocket to hit some local antique shops in Havre de Grace. It is a little town at mouth of the Susquehanna River on the Chesapeake Bay with antique and vintage shops around every corner. I cherished every moment of wandering at my own pace, lingering way too long looking at old postcards, or unfolding vintage aprons, no children to fuss over, no rush to get home to make dinner, as he promised dinner out when I returned. It was a perfect little present. And of course, I returned home with a few things.
orange polka dot canisters with wooden lids. stamped ‘west germany’. I haven’t been able to find any information about these anywhere. I’ve googled, ebay searched, no luck. So, I’ll just cherish my little two that are sitting on my counter.
Thank you, Dan for a wonderful (much needed) afternoon to myself….
