I found this guy sitting all by his lonesome on a cluttered Housewares shelf in Value Village. If he was a puppy, he would have been the runt of the litter, left behind by his big brothers and sisters, looking up at me with adorable, pining eyes. Well, we don't have a dog, but I did take this guy home with me.
In his first life, this is how I imagine he looked (but of course, with a different shape entirely - this was the closest picture I could find):
Of course, I wanted to give him a new home, and a new life. So I filled this little guy up and gave him a place of honour , right behind my kitchen sink (because doesn't everyone need a little cheer when they're washing dishes?!)
He makes me want to have fresh flowers in my home all the time. I've been buying all sorts of lovely blooms lately. And paired with this guy's fun shape, they make me smile, even when I'm elbow-deep in dirty dishwater.
