If you follow my Instagram you saw this play out already, but if you don't here's what happened; Last weekend I was sleeping when a large crash and breaking sound woke me up. Since I have two cats I immediately knew whatever happened was their fault. At first I couldn't find what had broken but then I found this:
UGH! Bastards! I was heartbroken but I couldn't be too mad, I mean things break, it's just stuff and since I had three of these pitchers I couldn't be too upset. I really took it much better than I thought I would considering my much documented obsession.
It gave me the kick in the pants I needed to move the collection from it's clearly un-cat proof location to a new cat-proof spot. Before it was displayed on a low chest in the dining room and it's new spot is where my cookbooks used to live on a built-in shelf in the kitchen.
And then something wonderful happened. Christina from Pardon My Vintage, a long time Etsy/Twitter/Instagram friend of mine and birthday twin had this for me. She had found it thrifting and was going to wait until our birthday to send it but she figured I could use a pick me up. Along with the plate she sent a lovely note about how she didn't want anything in return just for me to pay it forward. Which I love. Her kindness is amazing and my new plate is beautiful. Thank you Christina.
