on Saturday morning i had been greatly cheered,
not only by your lovely comments which you so kindly sent my way.
but also by the knowledge, despite my 'zapped state', i had spotted a new thrift store upon the way home from the gray and beige DOL.
oh yes indeedy!
as we sat at the lights,
our #2 in charge of the wheel,
me clutching my little sunshine sack
waving frantically for her to move over lanes so we could get home...
soon realizing it was not to be, as no one was going to let us in.
that's when it happened
like a beacon in the dark,
a glimmer of sunshine on a cloudy day,
i spied 'it' over my shoulder,
lurking between two other buildings...
i could just make out the letters
i didn't need to see any more, my inbuilt senses told me all i needed to know.
no hope of getting to it then, we were already heading somewhere else due to a 'no lane' change.
no matter, for at that moment i was too zapped.
i know, it must be tres worrying for you dearest readers to learn Tif was too zapped for thrifting.
but do not fret about such things,
it will all be hunky dory in the end.
(do you like that? 'hunky dory'... i have no idea where that came from but i thought it most lovely for a monday ramble),
all that mattered was it's discovery,
waiting patiently for my return.
it didn't have to wait long, Saturday afternoon saw me and our #1 heading back.
just like me, she can't resist the pull of the thrift store.
on entering the store,
i found a cotton gingham duvet cover with orange flowers upon it,
i looked at the cover,
the cover looked at me,
i told the cover,
"i don't do gingham and i don't do purple"
but the cover had other ideas.
launching into dreams of living life as a picnic blanket, patched together with other forsaken fabric friends...
i told the cover,
"little duvet cover, you have helped me to see another side of myself that i did not know existed, and for that i thank you kindly. i can do gingham and i can do purple and i can for you little cover, do a picnic blanket"
she is busy working on recycled lovelies for her little shop update on Thursday ~ Tif
