Sweet Happies

Thrift shop scores. I now have a cool sixteen sewing thimbles. Handy for when I start growing those extra limbs I keep putting in requests for.
Too bad the pricing lady at the store uses marker on the vintage packaging. grrrrrrr.
Thanks a whole lotta. You just de-valued that twenty-five cent item! (finding my happy back? Got most of it off with a bit of spit and eraser. Ah, yes. The sweet smells of spit and eraser.)
Didn't have the cool runners when you were a kid? Hey, it's rarely too late to placate that inner child.
Oh. Yeah.
I got it goin' on.

Check out my new button pins! Fabu-floral-icious work by Lisa-nimble-fingers. Every bit of it is handmade- the box, the shredded note paper, and the flowers fashioned out of zippers. Lucky me, when Lisa gifted this to me, I was wearing brown and orange. The corsage totally rounded out my otherwise lacking ensemble. Whew! Social wardrobing faux paus narrowly avoided!
I'll be making quite a statement around town this week with my thimbled fingers, sleek running shoes, and zipper corsages.
Maybe for something extra special, I'll get creative with those pompoms....

Why did I call those "button pins"??! Am I insane? Geez. They're made out of ZIPPERS not BUTTONS. Honestly. Every day I poop out more brains.

Yay Marci-Me!!!! NUMBER THIRTY!!!!

You're my happy today, that's for sure. Thanks so much for setting up camp.
