I Want To Curl Up In Her Lap
Don't you just love free thrifting? This old glass Mrs. Butterworth was sitting on a free table out on the edge of town in Battle Lake. From what I could tell, they had a rummage sale earlier in the day and this was the stuff that was left over. So they slapped a sign on the table and called it a day. And when we were driving past and saw that table, well, of course we were going to stop. We found chapter books and Mrs. Butterworth to bring home.
I like to place her in different rooms and use her as a prop. If the kids are acting up, I can hold her up and say in my best Mrs Butterworth voice "I don't approve of that, Dearies!" Needless to say, the kids are really looking forward to school starting.
