Moony Eyed

She just tempted me so... Miss Shabby In The City... did you see what she did? Yesterday she posted pictures of the most darling old cookie jar. I couldn't get that sweet thing out of my mind all day! I just kept imagining all the silly arrangements that I could make if I had one of those whimsical Man In The Moon cookie jars! So, I set about the task of finding one, that's what I did! Well, what do you think? Won't he be ever so darling holding flowers or over-sized peppermint sticks or berry branches or... anything??

Oh, alright, I know it's my very own fault. I have some kind of vintage monkey on my back. I was pondering this dilemma whilst in the car this morning. I was admitting to myself that I probably should have waited and tried to find a less expensive version of the cookie jar. When out of the corner of my eye I saw the blur of a tag sale sign. Without another thought to that monkey, I turned at the very next corner and followed the signs! Thankfully, I only had $1.15 in my handbag or who knows how out of control I might have been.

Once upon a time I received the very worst kind of advice that a flea market kinda gal can receive. Buy what you love, even it you aren't sure what you'll do with. If you love it, you'll find a use for it. Have you heard it too? Isn't that just a wicked piece of temptation?!

And then there's that Bible verse... in the middle of a very thorough description of a virtuous woman... "She considers a field and buys it." Do you suppose that "consider" should involve more than "can't get it out of my mind"?


  1. Well I think that if you make wine cookies to put in the jar, you'll be ok.


  2. I love the moon jar! I did see Shabby in the City's post yesterday. What I want to know is are you going to allow him to entice you into a midnight moonlit dance? I am sure it would be enchanting(hee, hee):)

  3. LLLLLOOOOOOLLLLLL!!!!! BTW (back to work) Love, Esther

  4. OH gosh!!! You are gonna slap me! Someone gave me that jar!!! With about a thousand more cookie jars...I had to put him outside cuz he wouldn't fit in the house! Well I'm glad...hey how did you find one so fast?
