Wanted to show you the "gotcha"s from yesterday's flea marketing (@ Seekonk Speedway in MA), but by the time I got home from a church cook-out, the darkness & dreariness did not = good photo-taking conditions, but did = primo stitching/tv-watching conditions.
So without further ado, here are my finds (total: $19.50):
Miniature rocking chair: $3
Doll hair rollers: 50¢
98 flashcards for $4
Barbie blue jeans total: $3. Have already started hacking them up for finger puppets, as I find that doll clothes' fabric works really well for this purpose. The thickness & the pattern repeat of this type of fabric is in the right scale.
Toy gun ($1) can shoot a ...
Ceramic turkey: $1, purchased as a prop for an upcoming holiday. Can you guess which one?
4 Fiestaware napkin rings for $7. Here they are on my dining room floor. 'sNOT where I eat.
Finger Puppet Play:
Sissy: You can eat off her floor!
Sassy: For days, without going hungry!
Speaking of 4-Ring Circuses (circusi) brings us to our next photo.
One of the "benefits" of being a freelancer working from home is that you can pretty much wear anything you want. However, when you have to go out into the world, sometimes it's a good idea to re-evaluate your wardrobe choices.
I've learned this lesson the hard way.
One time when I ventured out, wearing an ill-advised striped top and H-shaped pants (think MC Hammer) festooned with giant flowers, I overheard the comment, "She looks like a clown!"
So now, I always consult my Harsh Inner Critic.
Today on my way out to run errands wearing cropped pants with sox & sandals, the Harsh Inner Critic's crack was,
"What? Is the circus in town?"
And then, I was able to gleefully respond,* "YES! This Wednesday!"
Take THAT, Harsh Inner Critic!
