On Why I Shan't Kill or Leave My Current Husband

Says he: "Who did that string art?"

says me: "I bought that at the thrift shop".

he: "What'd you pay for it?"

me: "50 Cents. It's probably the weirdest thing I've ever bought, but it reminded me of Kathy and Ken (my bro and sis). They did those.

he: "I did that too".

me: dramatic pause.

he: "It's hard to find good string art these days."

I have a VIVID memory of this exact project(!) done when students at Southwood School reached Grade 6...mine was done in varying shades of blue.

oh thanks for the saturday morning smile.
It might be the perfect thrifting one liner,
"It's hard to find good string art these days."
Yup, a good one!

What a great man.
Mine still insists on saying things like, "But what is it FOR?"

I did a couple of those in my younger years too! with pink and blue string. I can't remember the design though - finally just threw them away after years of storage waiting for them to come back into fashion.
