4.8 Pounds of Retail Therapy
One of my New Year's "intentions" is to try harder to get out of the office at lunch time so I took a quick spin through The Bins today. I scored a too-late-for-this-year Mother Mary blow mold. Why does that sound so creepy?? The rest of the nativity was no where to be found, not for lack of hunting. A bag of vintage jello molds, along with some newer ones, two neat sewing patterns, a thimble and a tea ball for my collection. Not too bad for 35 minutes.
This old train case is a perfect shade of green and I think it will be pretty nifty once I give it a good scrub and line the lid with some pretty floral wallpaper. Finding it with the tray was a bonus.
I adore the name emblem, Starline! A memento from a time when travel was an elegant adventure instead of sweat pants, flip-flops, backpacks and pat downs.
