This past Sunday my husband and I checked out “Vintage Garage Chicago” and spent 2 1/2 hours perusing all the stalls. I came home with a beautiful floral frog. I’m not sure if I’ll use it for it’s original intention. I think it has a beautiful shape and just might keep it on my writing desk to remind me about another frog.
Well, not just one particular frog but three of them. You see, a few years back, I had the pleasure of being the camp counselor for a troop of Frogs, or “Varles” (frogs in Lithuanian). My “Varles” have since grown up to become successful, wonderful women in their own right. I’m so happy I see them often and they still don’t mind, I don’t think, when I still refer to them as my “Varles” and how we earned the “Shopping Merit Badge” in Michigan (chuckle). I’m so proud of them.
