A post from Kelli–
When Jason and I were in Galena, I didn’t have anything specific that I was looking for. Dad always said that you go to antique stores to see how much is reasonable to pay at auctions. I’ve kind of adopted that saying as truth. I always look at the big pieces, but honestly the house that we moved into is quite smaller than our previous house so we have more than enough furniture. I mainly just look for little decorations and my favorite ones are ones that remind me of people or experiences.
While wondering through one of the stores we visited, I found this little cow.
When I was little, mom had one that she kept on the stove. It was intended to hold creamer I think, but ours held other little things. All was well until I got home and was carrying everything in the house. I put the bags on the table and one happened to fall off and I heard a crack. Before I even looked, I knew something had broken.
After opening up the package, I saw that the only thing broken was a back foot. With a little bit of superglue, I had the cow fixed in no time!
Superglue to the rescue!
For a second I felt bad about it..but then I realized that the super glue is all part of this relics story. I didn’t buy it for perfection. I bought it to preserve a memory and now it I have a couple more to add to the first one.
