Two Little Old Ladies Just Sitting on My Windowsill

Well, ask and you shall receive!  I bought two new girlfriends today.  Yes, bought!

You gals and your thrift store (or Op Shop!) finds!  I am usually soooooo jealous.

But. Today. Look who I found:





Aren't they cute?  (Excuse the bad picture . . . I'm not a good portrait taker.)

They are small enough to sit on my kitchen windowsill and listen to all my trials and triumphs as I do the nightly dishes.  Oh the talks we'll have.  I'll bet they'll even hear some mutterings. 

These faces certainly look like they have all the answers, don't they?





I've yet to figure out their names, but I'm sure they are something old and eccentric . . .

Any ideas?

How about Gladys and Grace? Gladys was my paternal grandmother, Grace my maternal greatgrandmother. One was motherly, one was . . . not.



Love Them!!!

These certainly are sweet Renee. Would you believe I have just gotten around to visiting you. I wanted to thank you for your comment on my blog when I was feeling so blue. It took me a while to feel better. It is good to know that I am not the only person who finds things to be too much to bear sometimes.
I have added you to my "follow list" so I can check in with you every now and then.

Hi Renee, thank you so much for your kind words to me today..I appreciate it more than you know...I also have a lot of loneliness..just hubby and me and the dogs now, sons are grown and out, don't live closeby. My best girlfriends live about an hour away, but one works AND goes to college full time, and the other is a special ed teacher with teenagers at home, so...its hard to even catch them on the phone. I am at a different stage of life. I love them as much as always, its just 'different' now.

Oh names for the ladies. I like Hilda and Gladys..

Stay in touch and I will too!

I vote for Myrtle and Clarisse. Myrtle would be a bit crotchety, but secretly a bit of a softy and Clarisse would be really motherly and comforting with lots of cuddles and lavender powder.

You sound like a feel a bit better - hope that's so :-) These two lovelies look just like Doris and Ethel to me, I reckon they have a b*tchy side to them but would do anything for a true friend...

Renee' said...

Wow! All such great ideas for names. It seems there is a general consensus that Gladys is one . . . I'm still thinking on the other . . .

I think Humel certainly pegged their personalities!

Such fun, thanks gals. ;)
