And well, as I mentioned in my previous post, I was out most of the day with mom and of course we stopped in at our local Marshall's. I headed straight to the clearance section because since November 2007 I've had my eye on this pilgrim fellow - and it was originally $49.99 - I really loved him, but not enough to pay fifty bucks....so about 3 weeks ago, I ran into my girlfriend at Marshall's and well I took her back there to see if my pilgrim was still there...yep...he was there and now he was on clearance for 50% off...and my girlfriend told me to get him... Hmmmm...I told her that since he was still here he'd probably last a little while longer. Yep, my black top guy was standing there today, just waiting on me. I picked him up because the price was on the sole of his boot, and WHAT? He was marked down to $15.00, then the gal tells me he's half off of that! Oh my goodness I picked up my pilgrim and put him right in the cart. He's sooooooo wonderful, I just LOVE him! I will put him on my porch during harvest time, to greet our guests. I cannot wait to display him. He is a little over 3 feet tall, yep he's a really good size, and he's quite heavy too! Isn't he just wonderful? I put him here on my fireplace just to take a picture of him, but I'll wrap him up nice and safe until Fall. Boy, I love when I find a great bargain. So, his name is "Pilgrim" (I'm so original aren't I?) I wonder if he has a wife? I think I'll have to find him one...I've got all year to do so.
Here is the lovely pillow Angela made, it's just perfect on my bench in the foyer
This white pillow is so fresh, perfect for summer! Did I mention I'm missing summer?
Meet "Pilgrim." His black slacks are tucked in his boots. And the cutie
pie is my first born, I wanted you to see the scale of Pilgrim.
