Another person's treasure


Usually it happens to me....today it didn't. I am usually the person who rescues someones junk & turns it into my TREASURE. Over the summer my aunt came to visit and rescued this 'new' dress form from me. Not the dress form all of us Bella's covet...the old vintage paper board worn and just begging to be draped in lace and specially created jewels. This was the cast off...the falling over...polyester covered dress form. I had it & I didn't want it. She gladly took it off my hands...and I was thrilled to get it out of my house. Today she sent me the picture of my old 'trash' & her new 'treasure'. She asked if it was done & is there anything else she could do with it? The only answer I could think of was...."Why yes...send it back to me!!!" Have you ever wrongly gotten rid of your trash only later to see it turned to treasure? I hope this finds you well and thinking more carefully of your trash.

YUP. It is like "now,why didn't I think of that?"
Thanks for your note, Hope. I work full time @ IUAA, and just part-time @ Papertrix. I am doing design work for them...cards & altered books. I worked on Sunday and a lady came in w/a crown necklace on and I said "where did you get that?" and she said "Lola Rue's" and I said "Oh, that is one of Hope's." :-) I still get compliments on mine. I need to get in to take one of your classes. You always produce quality items.
Hugs,

Hope- I hate when that happens! I try not to let it keep me from getting rid of stuff because it doesn't happen often but when it does I'm filled with regret. At least you can still visit it! Hugs to you girlfriend. I miss you too!
