The Blue Pitcher

This is the landing at the top of our stairs.  My mom gave me the little oak stand years ago.  The blue pitchers came from an auction.  What you can't see in this picture is a story behind the open top blue pitcher.  

Anna, our youngest, loved to sleep in her older sister's bedroom.  Justine would "let" her camp out for nights on end.  At times, they had villages of Barbie or Polly houses and there Anna was sleeping in the middle of all that.  One day, Justine had enough of Anna and told her it was time for her to move back to her room.  One was throwing items - the other "catching" them....guess which one was which.  Well, in the middle of all that, the antique blue pitcher fell and broke.  
I was actually was mad and threw it in the garbage.  I usually sell the good stuff I buy and keep the imperfect pieces.  However, this piece was one of my favorites and decided to keep it.  Well, that was that it and it was in the garbage.  

Well, Christmas morning rolls around - like months later.  I had a box under the tree that said, To:  Mom From:  Justine and Anna.  I had no idea what it was.  I was so surprised - shocked actually to see this blue pitcher all glued back together.  I now LOVE it!  It is one of my favorite things.
