Sharing the good stuff, that's what blogging is all about. That's why I love going for my morning visit over to Janie's, she tells it like really is. She said genetics play a big role in explaining why they are driven to go junking. In their blood she says, also it's their livelihood since she is an antique dealer. On a fairly regular basis she loads up the car with daughters and grand babies in tow for a junkin' run. Janie is an open book, sharing her life with all of us, even the embarrassing stuff! Half the morning gone, her daughters noticed she had her shoes on the wrong feet, really! They were the forgiving moccasin type so it wasn't as bad as it sounds. She said her Mom on another run for goodies had her coat on upside down... you'd notice that, wouldn't you??? She did say it "felt odd!" I have to collect myself here, this is funny stuff................. OK, I can type again! You just have to go visit her post at Janie Fox Talks .
They say confession is good for the soul, I think I need to
True, every word of this, and I have to reach a stopping point! One thing we found was a true treasure, a sewing machine. There it was, like new, beside the metal garbage can. How could anyone throw away a perfectly good sewing machine? I picked it up (it was the portable in-a-case kind) and carried it back to our little 2 bedroom apartment. I knew immediately that this would be sent to my Mom in Arkansas. For my 13th birthday my parents had bought me a New Home sewing machine, so I didn't need it. Mom used that sewing machine for the next 35 years. It made pajamas for our families, it mended pants for my Dad and it even made doll quilts for the granddaughters. The sewing machine that was trash to someone else, resides at Stephanie's house mending clothes for her boys. I love that.
