Hello everyone! Meet the twins . . .
The one on the right I've had for many years, can't even remember where I got her. The week after Christmas I knocked her off the shelf and had to reglue her skirt. Mister can't understand why I don't just throw away broken things. (He just doesn't understand!) The one on the left I picked up at the thrift store last week for $2.00. A broken bell in her hand but, who cares? Not me! Now both can live brokenly ever after!
EDIT: I remembered this quote that Stitch says in the Lilo & Stitch movie: "This is my family. I found it all on my own. It's little, and broken, but still good. Yeah, still good."
At the same thrift store outing, I got this picnic hamper for $2.50! I just wanted the thermos in it, but the lady said they had to go as a set so, for the price, I took them. I threw away this hamper as it was a cheap, broken one, and transferred the goodies to one of my vintage Redman picnic baskets.
This is a Thermos brand thermos, but was made in England - along with all the other items in the basket.
A pretty vintage handkerchief purchased on the same trip for $1.00.
More trip items - a cute little brooch and an adorable felt bag that holds . . .
a measuring tape!
