A Gift For Mom

Mom and Dad went to breakfast at Cracker Barrel this morning and for all those of you that don't live in the USA - let me explain. Cracker Barrel is a restaurant and store. They have an old country time theme and sell all kinds of old fashioned candies as well as nick knacks, clothing and many other neat things that tempt you into having a much more expensive breakfast :).

After they finished their breakfast Mom and Dad stopped to look around the store and Dad saw this tucked away behind some other things and knew straight away Mom would LOVE it. It is about a 12 inches tall and is a wonderful little water fountain. The water trickles from the top out of the shell, then into the next two shells before falling into a large clam shell and over flowing into the large clam shell base. The photos really don't do it justice - there are little tiny shells embedded through out it as well as the bigger shells and all kinds of little corals. Dad was right - Mom totally loves it and couldn't wait to get it home set it up and plug it in. It is now gently tinkling away on the corner of the cupboard in the kitchen. Mom says it will also help some moisture into the air - Dad says the noise makes him want to pee :)

  2. How cool. We got introduced to Cracker Barrel when visiting FL. Then a few years ago when we were out in the western part of the state we noticed they had arrived in the state. They always have neat stuff in the store.

  10. Great find for Dad this time:) We bet your Mom could make one of her own with all the pretty shells she and you find on your walks. The sound of that water can be very soothing (except for your Dad - BOL).

  17. Sunday Lee ate at Cracker Barrel they have fried chicken as a Sunday special and there was a shell water fountain only it had a green frog sitting on the top. How funny because we thought of your shells. We got Easter old fashion candy. They had the sugar eggs with the scenes inside that Lee got from her Papa as a kid.
    Thanks for being a friend
