Treasure Box Wednesday: Looking for Time in the Treasure Chest

The Thrift Shop Romantic is being a busy bee trying to get her friend's crafty gift done (due Sunday!) so I hope you will all forgive her-- er, me, rather-- for today's lack of real post. I think this has only happened twice in 2 and a half years, so I figure the odds aren't too shabby and, plus-- I'm hard at work for a good cause.

But not to leave you completely empty-handed today, I thought I'd share a few links to some recent posts on my humor blog you might enjoy:

  • I know we have a lot of readers here among are ranks. Ever think about what would happen if folks like Shakespeare, Jane Austen and the Bronte sisters were alive... and blogging? Find out here.

Have a great week, friends-- and I'll see you on Sunday, complete with the finished project! Yay!

Did you see that Channel 4 is doing a piece on thrift shops on Thursday's newscast?

My late Mother had a swinging girl clock just like that when I was a little girl myself. I would LOVE to find one eventually. I have no idea what happened to Mom's after she got sick with Alzheimer's. Love your Blog!!

What a cute clock Jenn! Is it yours? We miss your humor, but I understand that the project must get completed. Can't wait to see it.

Nancy- Really-- how cool! Do you know when it was purchased? I'd been guessing it's from the 30s/40s, but could be wrong.

Andrea- Yes, it's mine. I got it for $15 at this terrific place called the L&L Fleatique. I can't go there without finding terrific goodies. The clock had some power issues initially, but my dad, clever bunny that he is with gadgetry, got it working.

Thanks for the understanding, Ladies! I've been coming home every night from work and painting the project-- it's turning out very cute, I think. I hope she likes it.
