Best anniversary gift ever!

My hubby and I just had our 26th wedding anniversary and I got the best gift ever.  Granted, I was pretty mercenary about how I got it.  You see, I was out and about the weekend prior to our anniversary and I made an impulse stop at my favorite antique shop (which I blogged about here.)  While there, I saw something that I REALLY WANTED but didn’t have cash on hand to buy it. It was also a bigger credit card purchase and the hubby and I agree not to buy expensive luxury items on credit unless we discuss it first.

How to get it?  Gears turn in brain…. Ah Ha!  My anniversary is coming up!  I will get the hubby to get it for me!  I pre-negotiated the price before I left and I said hubby would be in the coming week to get my gift…hopefully!

And judging by the title of this post, he came through!

I didn't notice the grasshoppers until I got it home!  Awesome!  There are two but I think there was originally three of them.

I will be carefully taking them all out, one by one, to see if there are any clues as to the identity of the family that originally owned it.
