I went out at lunch and found my honey a gorgeous orchid - he loves them and used to be pretty good at growing them, but he hasn't had any for awhile. I fell in love with the gorgeous color of this one and decided he just had to have it!
He got me this very sweet little wire dress-shaped display! I can't wait to use it on a show table - I love it!
The pendant is from my other sweet boy, who saw it weeks ago and told his Dad that he had to get that for me. He was so excited to see me open it! I gave him a handmade certificate good for 5 iTunes downloads, along with copious amounts of candy
I have been doing some cleaning/organizing in my work space, which also contains a bunch of stuff that I just don't know where to put. In emptying some boxes, I came across some things that I brought back from my parent's house, after my sibs and I cleaned it out when my Mom died over 10 years ago. I found this little box...
I don't know what year these were purchased, probably mid 70's, but look at the price! 12 Valentine's for $1.25! I always loved Holly Hobbie :) Here's what I found when I opened it up...
Weird little collection, huh?! I picked all this stuff up off my Dad's dresser and stashed it away in this little box! Prince Albert rolling papers - he used to roll his own cigarettes with Prince Albert tobacco that came in cute little cans...wish I had some of the countless ones he threw away over the years! There was also an old broken pocket knife that he couldn't part with, an old whet rock, and a lead weight that I guess he picked up and was keeping for fishing, maybe? He was a bit of a hoarder like me, and couldn't throw it away.
I can't wait to go through a few more boxes to see what I come up with!
