God Bless The Primitive Womans Husband!!
I think it takes a special man to be a hubby of a Primitive Woman!!
Let me explain!!
Take my new baby here. Oh I love her!! I found her at a local craft antique store. Unfortunately, when I first saw her it was right before pay day and I admit it... I was broke!
So I had to leave her behind. For days I walked around my house talking about this doll I found. Trying to explain each and every detail to my husband.
"Oh, you should have seen her", I said. "She was made of heavy linen, aged perfectly. Her hair was made of actual horse hair. She had the most perfect dress. " And I said with much excitement, "She Was Completely Hand Sewn!"
He just nodded his head, "Really" he replied trying to act as if any of that meant anything to him.
And I would walk around saying, "Oh she would great sitting there or maybe there."
Well, pay day came around and he got off work, he came in and said "Do you want to go get that doll you were talking about?"
Heck Yeah!! I don't think he meant right that minute but... that is when we went. He didn't even change out of his work clothes, he just got in the car and headed right back out.
As we drove to the store all I could say, "Oh I hope it isn't closed." "I hope no one has bought her." "I bet she's gone." To which he replied, "No it will be fine, its only been a few days."
So we arrive at the shop. He just sits in the car and I go in. I nearly ran to the booth. At first I didn't see her, "Shoot! I knew it!!"
But then she caught my eye, she had only been moved to a different spot. So I swooped her up, went and paid, and carried her out to the car.
I got in and sat her in my lap, "Well, what do you think? Isn't she adorable!"
He looked up from his i-phone. And yep, there it was... the eye roll!!! And the standard comment, "You paid how much for that?"
Proudly I stated, "She was Only $50!". For some reason I don't think he thought that was as much of a bargain as I did!~~
But then he went on once again trying to appear interested, "So where are going to put her?"
And I talked about all the different places she could go.
He just smiled and said, "Yeah she'll look good there."
Yes, I do think it takes a Special Man to be a Primitive Woman's Husband!!! :)
God Bless all those Hubby's out there!!
Here are some more pictures of my new baby!!
