The house that gives you presents
When we first started working at our current house we started finding things. Our first "presents" weren't very impressive. Then a year or so later the creek yielded some real finds. Last summer Ray dug up a very cute little vintage metal firetruck toy. Today Ray was out pulling weeds and this bracelet came up out of the ground with a big weed. Seriously. Heavy, silver. Made in Italy.
Thank you, house. It just fits. How did you know that silver bracelets are one of my favorite things?
The irony is that last summer Ray lost his watch out in the yard. We have searched high and low and in the creek and cannot find it. I think the house is holding onto it to present to a future owner.
