When I was little……
I remember staying at my grandparents house a lot when I was little. In my grandma’s guest room – there was a sign that said “Christ is the head of this house, the unseen guest at every meal, the silent listener to every conversation”. I read that sign thousands of times & to this day, have never forgot those words. Now this sign was nothing special – it was a tacky brown, plastic plaque – but it was the words & the memories that came with the plaque is what was so meaningful. After the passing of both of my grandparents – everyone came into town & people took whatever! I am not upset at the least that someone else got their hands on it first….the same words must have spoken to them as well. I was young at the time & didn’t know what would later be important to me. However, I’ve always kept my eye open for the same saying in the same tacky plastic brown plaque for over 15 years now…..& have never, ever come across one like it.
Antique shopping yesterday & guess what I found…one word is different, but this speaks to me just as much as the original – yet almost more beautiful with the picture of Christ & written words & the framing.
Although, for me –
I still love the tacky brown plastic plaque & will continue to look for it!
But, I have a question: Is there a story around why your blog is called fishtail cottage? Is that meaningful too?
Wishing you a Happy New Year!
You're gonna really like my post, I think. My Show n Tell Link---where it's kinda fodder for the National Enquirer Tabloids. Do stop by if you can, I'd love your opinion.
