My first...

Cabinet card...

Isn't she just beautiful? I don't know who the hell she is but I was overwhelmed when I saw her, I just had to have her. And since I don't have any cabinet cards of my own... for $2.00, she was asking me to take her home and give her a new family!

I'll name her Miss Sophie.

My SNL Belinda took me to this neat place yesterday, sort of an antique/flea market (most antiques). It was on my list of places to visit but I had never been so I was sooo excited. There was so much to look at and I wish I had a dollar for every time I said or thought..."Ma Mere or MawMaw 'Teen had one JUST like that!" (My two wonderful grandmothers). It was like walking back in time. I mostly loved looking at the toys. The Fisher Price family house was my favorite as a child. I had the Farris wheel, the blue house with the yellow roof, the school bus...I could go on and on. My sister (10 years older than me) and I would play for hours and hours with our little "spool dolls". I still have some in the attic in pristine condition! How I'd give anything to pull them out and sprawl all over the floor again and spend hours and hours playing with them again. My husband would have me committed!

Then I came across these scissors...


At least that's what I thought they were until I actually picked them up. To my wonderful surprise...they were PINKING SHEARS!


If I could tell you how bad I needed a pair! I can't wait to cut some scrap pieces of material and spend a day in my 'therapy room' and just scrap my heart out! That day is coming...soon if I can help it!

Glad ya'll got to meet Miss Sophie. Have a great weekend!
