What I really love to do in antique shops is browse. Today was a browsing day and I especially loved one little booth at the front of the antique mall. Of all the little nooks and crannies in the entire building, this was my favorite. I didn't buy anything there, just drank in the shapes and colors, and of course, took a photograph. Who could resist? (I think these pictures would make great jigsaw puzzles.)
Before I left home this morning I looked up the place where I bought my last pair of alpaca mittens and found they had a booth in the exact location I was heading. I took the lonely mitten still in my possession (I lost its mate last January) and found another pair in exactly the same size and color. Now I have three mittens instead of one. Better to have an extra, just in case. My hands will be happy again and I have a whole family of mittens rather than just a couple. (Isn't that sweet?)
six years later, it still hurts....
