We also had our children very close together.
Another thing we have both always had in common is decorating. That was a strong bond between us from the beginning.
I remember visiting them when they lived in Kansas. There was a fun little downtown area
we would always look forward to exploring when I came to town. We would leave the
brothers at home with our children, promising them to be home
as soon as we could.
We would keep that promise the best we could, closing down the stores !
I remember finding this three piece "sponged" ceramic cannister set in this little Kansas town,
back in the days of the late 70's ~~ the first time brown was
such a popular color.Over the years with somewhere around seven or eight moves, I have tried very hard to part with some of my treasures. Gone are the wood ducks and geese and the fabric, dotted cats, pigs and cows, but somehow I could never part with these three brown pieces. I have always loved them. When we moved into our new home, I ran across them wrapped carefully in paper. YES, they would be perfect in my new kitchen. I am so glad I kept them.
Don't you think they look just fine again some thirty years later?
