Flower Pins

I rent a booth space at an antique mall.


It is a lot of fun, and feeds the creative side of me.

And, it {sometimes} gives me a little extra spending money to use to decorate my home.

So, it's pretty fun.  Until something ugly happens.

I had a couple of large architectural eyebrows for sale.   I had just brought them to my booth.

There they are above... see those two longer ones on the left?

Here are two smaller ones that look just like them.

Aren't they wonderful?

Well, someone else thought so too.  So they took them to the register and told the cashier that one price tag was for BOTH pieces.

Well, that was not truthful... and it has put me in a bit of a pickle.

Wouldn't it be great if that person would come right back down to the antique mall and say... "Hey, I thought the price was for both of these pieces, but now I realize it wasn't, so I want to do the right thing, and pay for that other piece."

I am not so nieve to think that theft or tag pulling doesn't happen.  But it does get me all jumbled up inside.

.     .     .

This week, my high school girl asked me (and her dad) a question for a homework assignment.  The question was, "What kind of lies do you most dislike?"  Interesting, no?

.     .     .

And because I don't want to end on such a sour note.  Here is something fun...

I made a bunch of fall flower pins.

I will be taking them down to my booth.

I will be revamping my entire space next week, so stop by if you get a chance.

I'll have vintage Christmas, some pretty french pieces and lots more!
