Firstly, I have to tell you that I just rocked a baby to sleep in my arms.
Oh my sweet baby cheeks of love!
Baby Audrey is the five month old baby of a friend and she let me hold her baby. I held her and did the mommy rocking thing and that baby put her head on my shoulder, gave a sigh and fell asleep. She killed me. Her smell, the feel of her little head on my shoulder- sheer heaven.
Okay, now that you know about that I can tell you about the junk.
The junking was epic.
First I found Lily some shiny red shoes.
You should know that I love patent leather.
Can you say McCoy Pottery?
Because for .50 I can!
Now brace yourselves people because this story will give you chills.
I went to the junk store hoping to find something specific. I don't usually go into the junk store hoping to find a particular item because it angers the junk gods who prefer that you open yourself to possibilities that they lay before you.
Today however I had the idea that I would love to find a plaid woolen blanket for fall and winter. I could picture it draped on the couch, or maybe used as a blanket on an autumn picnic.
I have never seen one while junking, but still I harbored a secret and dear desire for tartan blanket goodness.
Not, one but two!!!!!! They were each 2.99. I gasped aloud. I'm not ashamed to admit it. I felt unworthy of such bounty but snatched those babies up before someone else could grab them.
It gets better.
Know what else I have been looking for for years?
A sled to use decoratively in the winter. I haven't wanted to spend big money on one so I've just been keeping an eye out for one and until today I have never stumbled across one.
There it was for 7.99.
I also found some great clothes, but I won't bore you with that. The point here is that the stars were aligned and the junk gods bestowed upon me their favor.
To show my appreciation of the junk gods and my kind readers who tolerate my daily stream of blather I am having a "My junk is your junk" giveaway.
On my travels recently I have been collecting some things for you, my dear readers.
First a shiny red polka dottie teapot!
A lovely desk set...
It comes with some file folders, a notepad and some note cards in a lovely red holder.
A set of fancy cloth napkins. Why use paper when you can be fancy?
Want to win these lovelies? Leave a comment telling me whether you think I am too old to wear patent leather Mary Janes like Lily's. Winner will be randomly selected next Friday 5pm EST.
