It Has Begun
Rummage Sale Season!
It was windy, cold and drizzling, but we headed out nonetheless. Lu and I have been waiting for this day since last Fall!
There were only a few sales that we were going to go to...a prom fundraiser where we found a scarf to accent a shirt for 50 cents...a toy sale where we found chapter books for Lu and a bunch of Weebles and the large houses that they go into for Bud for a total of $5...and then off to an estate sale up the street hosted by a friend of mine who gave me this:
She just gave it to me. Which is always a bit awkward, isn't it? Oh, but the story gets better.
A gorgeous old heavy mirror that a chunk of BROKE OFF IN MY HANDS as we were leaving.
After she told me it was old, old, old.
Given to her by a favorite relative back East. And now being given to me because she wanted me to have it.
Did I mention old?
BREAKING OFF IN MY HANDS??
You know those moments of horror that you want to sink into the ground and pretend it is just a weird dream? Yeah. I was there.
And how am I ever going to be able to glitter it now that I know it's an antique? Although, the glitter would hide the breaks in the wood...
