Island on an Island . . .
In our kitchen is an island with a granite counter that resembles a riverbed, and on this island is another small island. This small 'island' is a collection of vases with flowers from the yard, along with a growing menagerie of turtles, frogs, a goat, a wooden grandmother and grandfather, and stones from the lake.
This second island began with a single vase and flower. My granddaughter added 'dinosaur eggs' (made from clay); I added a few more vases; my husband added the wooden figures; my grandchildren began adding one or two things each summer. I love this island to bits.
