Don't you love it when you...

squirrel something away and forget about it? Until you accidentally come across it and remember you bought it??!! It's like Christmas come early!

Man, my mom was notorious for that! Growing up she would be doing her closet spring cleaning upstairs when she's yell out, "I forgot to give you something for Christmas..." I'd go tearing up the stairs to see what it was. It got to the point where it was a family joke.

What's even stranger is I knew all her Christmas gift hiding spots and even I didn't find them! She was that good. ((giggle))

So yesterday I'm down in the barn rummaging around to find barn wood for the tabletop and there was my big ol' copper barn star I bought 12 years ago. Heck, I forgot all about it!

I originally had it hanging inside the farmhouse. Then I wanted a change and asked hubs to hang it outside on the barn. But where I wanted it hung, it had to be removed every time hubs wanted access to the upper part of the barn. So that didn't fly too well. It ended up squirreled away in the barn.
That is until now.

Since I'm still on a copper kick, I plan on hanging it back up in the living room.

I guess it's true what they say... The apple doesn't fall far from the tree.
Thanks, mom!

Happy Wednesday, all.

Awww... cute story about your mom. Yes, I am the same way, Karin. Last night, I was getting rid of a lot of junk and came across my old fashioned pencil sharpener! I'd rather come across a big ol' beautiful copper barn star, though. Heehee I'm getting rid of even more things today. I need to keep my mind occupied. I got a call from my cousin saying my uncle had died at 7:30 this morning (we knew it was soon). He had dementia and copd. He was like my second dad, so I thought it would be best to throw myself into something. Decorating and getting rid of stuff sure is great therapy! Have fun hanging your star!

Denise, I am so sorry to read about the passing of your uncle. We are never prepared for such a loss even knowing it is inevitable due to an illness. Yes, keep busy. I'll be sending prayers your way. ♥
