No Albert Until Thursday...
I went to my favorite Goodwill store this morning.
This is what I found. No. Not Tessie.
All of the stuff around her.
It looked to me like a lot of mini ribbons and trims. For that price, I was willing to take a chance...
I am SO glad that I did!!!
A lot of the little plastic bags, I recognized from mini shows back in the eighties. I was right!
I took Each item out of it's bag and wound the ribbons and trims on separate cards.
As I was doing it, I kept thinking of the other bag that I saw. When I finished everything but Tessie's pile. I decided that I wanted that other bag.
I went back to Goodwill and got it. It was 2.30 more. It had some more trims and some very nice antique lace.
I think by the time I finish Tessie's pile, I can safely estimate the total very close to $200.00 worth of trims, lace and braids.
I have to go back now and finish untangling Tessie's mess. She can't seem to get out of there. I just hope I don't have to cut her loose. That would be a shame...
She is just going to have to tolerate the mess that she got herself into until I untangle her.
Wish me luck! See you tomorrow.
