On the 4th of July, I spent a few hours out at the Traders Market Antique Show and Flea Market. I arrived later than I had planned and ended-up practically sprinting from booth to booth so that I could see everything before closing time!
I bought this cute wicker chair, a vintage kitchen towel and tablecloth, a Florida mug and a vintage metal file holder for organizing bills, mail, etc....
Once upon a time there was a lady who struggled
with knitting. She loved to "create,"
but knitting caused her fingers and back to ache. Her knitting was tight, so the garments she
knitted did not fit properly. She didn't
understand how to correct her mistakes.
She eventually gave it up! She
carefully packed her knitting needles away and placed them in the back of a closet.
Then, one rainy Saturday afternoon, the lady
logged on to "YouTube" and typed the word "crochet." (She was inspired by Carol at Old Glory Cottage.) The lady watched several fun
and informative videos and learned the basic crochet stitches. During the next few days she made A LOT of
coasters/hot pads. She experimented with
different edgings. She crocheted three
winter scarves. She made plans to
crochet a blanket for her bed and is currently working on a v-stitch scarf. She is able to correct her mistakes.The lady is happy!
When my daughter was younger, we used to spend hours playing my old 1970's edition of the "Mystery Date" game. We played the game so often, in fact, that we broke the hinges right off the mystery door and, I guess, we threw it out.
However, the fun didn't stop! She was given her own "Mystery Date" game; the 2005 edition, and we have saved it.
I noticed this 2011 edition at the thrift store recently. It is actually a reproduction of the original 1965 version so, of course, it had to come home with me!!
Think there is any chance that my daughter will want to play?
