Jo brought me over a gift, she was thrift store shopping and thought of me. A few more Shiny Brites to add to my collection..I did not have any of this design in gold so they are just perfect! Thanks Jo!
I am not sure what I will do with them..right now I just stuck them in a basket above the television. Sometimes things are just fun to look at.
I really should stick with collecting marbles and dice, they are small and take up practically no space at all but they are hard to find. At the Val Chatel sale if I had been one minute faster I would have had a jar full of dice and one of those big beautiful red ruby dice…but alas I stopped to look at the hundreds of rocks outside. The stupid rocks anyway. Far Guy saw the dice in their box. He whispered to me “Did you see that die?” YES..and he could see the look in my eye and it was not the look a nice old lady should have, I followed that couple around hoping that they would decide against buying the dice..they were really old perhaps one of them would stumble and the box would fly out of their hands. Would I have grabbed that dice while it was flying in the air..yes..the question is would I have returned it to them or ran to the checkout? I practically had to slap myself.. Far Guy finally offered the guy double what the die was marked..no sale. So perhaps I should just keep my goals in sight with my collecting and stop getting side tracked by cute little books that don’t take up much space and all the rest of those things that I just cannot pass up. Do you suppose shopping for Antiques is an addiction?
When I get up in the morning..if I think of where we are going this week and how many Antique shops we will pass in our travels and how many will be just off the road a few miles..do you suppose that is a bad thing? Is there a cure for this sickness or am I doomed?:)
