I was on my way to get some school supplies for my daughter. And seeing the Salvation Army Store I just had to go in. I really don't know why, because NEVER buy anything. I'm really a very poor thrift store shopper.
So I'm just looking around and my husband calls: Where are you?
Me: Salvation Army looking at junk. (Right then I spot some coasters just like my mother used to have.)
These coasters - right here:
So I say: Hey they have the same coasters Mom used to have when I was a kid.
Hubby : Buy them.
Me: You don't even know what they look like!
Hubby: Buy them.
Me: We don't need coasters.
Hubby: Buy them. They must be a good price and they are worth a lot.
Oh! The light bulb goes off - he's already figured out they are antiques because if I was a kid, and I'm, well old, then so are they!
So I bought them. And I like them, after all Mom does have good taste.
I've always loved sewing. I remember being about 4 sitting on floor hand stitching doll dresses, while my mother sewed on her sewing machine. I couldn't wait to be big enough to use the sewing machine! Now I work full time and try to sew daily, but other fun stuff gets in the way. You know, like swimming and camping. Sometimes reading or watching movies. Grandkids, BBQ's, walking the dogs. You get the picture.
