Okay, last week when we were in Gulf Shores, I stopped at the Cracker Barrel to look for a Halloween costume for Margaret. After a morning of shopping at the Outlet Malls in Foley, Marvin said he would just stay in the car and rest while I shopped. Well Cracker Barrel did not have the costume I wanted in Margaret's size so I started out the door and low and behold, I saw this ceramic Christmas tree! I knew I had to have it. And here is why!
When we were newlyweds, my precious mother in law, Mama G, made us one of these trees at her ceramics class. Well in our last move to our town house, this heirloom got broken. I was so sad... I began to look on etsy and ebay for a similar one but I was shocked at how much these little trees went for these days. The Cracker Barrel Tree is not an exact match to the broken tree but it was good enough for me and priced very reasonably. Marvin was surprised to see me lugging this big box out of the store. He just smiled when he saw what I had purchased. He knows he is married to a crazy lady!:)
