Yesterday I mentioned that I had wanted to buy something at the Affair of the Heart craft show in Tulsa a couple of weekends ago. The vendor hadn't brought it with them because their booth wasn't very large and well, the item I wanted to buy would have taken up a lot of space.
But since they are located near Oklahoma City and G5's postponed birthday party was this past weekend, we arranged to meet last Friday.
This is what they brought me - a wonderful and very large turtle sculpture made of metal.
When I first saw the turtle at their booth during the Tulsa Home and Garden Show I knew I had to have it for this little garden nook in front of our house. I can just imagine how everything is going to look next year when the hostas are bigger. (They were just tiny little sprouts last year and look how they've grown in just one season!)
We bought the fountain earlier this season and were actually looking for something a bit larger. Now I really think we need a bigger one. We'll find one sometime. I just have to be patient.
And I may just have to plan a trip to the Oklahoma City Affair of the Heart show in October (the 22nd thru the 24th in case anyone is interested). You see, this turtle has a little brother and I may just have to have him to keep this one company.
So that was Friday.
Saturday was G5's birthday party. Isn't his Tonka Truck cake cute. Son made it and G5 loved it - especially the malted milk balls in the back! In fact, all the kiddos at the party liked what the truck was hauling - and some of the grownups too.
When the party was over I drove back home just in time to bake a batch of brownies and head for the local dirt track to watch G1 and G2 race.
It was a long day and a long drive home but I had the turtle as company.
PS. In case you're looking for cute decorations for your garden and happen to be in the Oklahoma City area during the Affair of the Heart craft show, Kountry Klutter is the name of the vendor that had my turtle and they're also the ones that had the adorable balancing bugs I bought at the Tulsa Home and Garden Show.
