Today, my bedroom closet was such a mess that I could no longer deal with it. I took it on. I won.
I got a pretty hook thingy from Hobby Lobby on which to hang my nightgowns. I wanted to hang it, so I headed out to the garage to find screws and anchors and a screwdriver, etc.
(remember, this is the garage that it is going to take me probably a year to get through)
I kept asking my father-in-law Ellis, who passed away in 2003, "Where did you put this stuff, Ellis? Where would you have stashed screws and nails and small bits of hardware?" I finally gave up when I couldn't find anything and knew our stuff like that is in storage in my parents' barn.
I went to put away the screwdriver, when a plastic bag sitting beside the furnace caught my eye. Inside it looked something vaguely like fabric.
Turns out it WAS fabric. Pink pincord.
And under the pincord, I found this, wrapped in tissue paper:
There was a small box under the bag, so I grabbed it and went back into the house.
And here's what I found:
|Ancient interfacing & tracing paper|
|Needle book and the cutest ruler|
|Look at the prices!|
|Anne Adams mail-order|
Here are my favs:
Wow. Sometimes God just surprises you with these little gifts.
By the way, did I mention my mother-in-law gave me this for Christmas?
This sure does make having to move a little sweeter. I guess God decided I needed a spoonful of sugar in my life. I think I'll go lay down and die now.
I hope your day is as good as mine, wall hardware nonwithstanding!
