What makes my heart go flippety flop!

I've lost my vintage mojo somewhere on the way, not much I see out there makes my heart go flippety flop anymore, you know the kind of flippety flop when you stumble across a treasure that you absolutely smurf (love).

But the other day I am wandering about the castle lands and propped up against the wall down the side of the castle below my very own side balcony was this!

A bit dirtier, with grass hanging off it but just propped up there! Strange because I had been down through the  castle lands two days before picking flowers to put in my apartment and it was not there, and I have lived here for 18 months and have never seen it before!

All I can think of is the castle gardener (employed by the castle owner, not me!) has been doing extensive ground work to prepare the castle for sale (another story) and unearthed it!

Anyway, let me tell you I hauled that piece of wrought iron up to my apartment pronto and excitedly showed my dinner guests later that night...

who really did not get my excitement!

I know you will though!

p.s. It is the last night my Princess is 8 years old!
