My hubby and I left early yesterday morning to go to our youngest son and daughter-in-law's to babysit the grands - mostly Ellie because the other two were in school most of the day. Shortly after our arrival she donned her princess costume for our enjoyment. What self-respecting grandma would pass up an opportunity to post a picture like this???

While we were en route to their house, the E-bay bidding for the 3-piece Shirley Temple breakfast set was coming to an end. Because I wasn't home glued to my computer so I could increase my bid if need be, someone else outbid me by .50 cents at the last minute, and I lost the breakfast set.
Not to worry though because when I returned home last night a gift bag and vase of tulips awaited me on my front porch from my sweet girlfriend. Inside the gift bag was the Shirley Temple cereal bowl! 💓 Thanks, Lori!
I couldn't help thinking while I was with Ellie, she's the same age as Shirley Temple was during the filming of many of her great movies. I wouldn't want Ellie to give up her childhood for stardom though. It came at a high price for Shirley, even though she loved what she was doing. She related several sad situations she experienced with adults during her movie career.
Have a great weekend! I'm going back to my tea and book reading now.
