serendipity

Sometimes I'm in the right place at the right time.  I was walking towards the checkout in the local Target today when I passed a bargain table.  It seemed to be mostly lampshades which I neither need nor want.

Then I saw this pretty tin.  It seemed to be the only one on the table and was marked down to a couple of dollars.  I had to do a bit of  a hunt to find the lid, but it was there, under the shades.  It's quite a large tine and I immediately thought of one of my granddaughters who loves this sort of thing.  If I buy some special stationery and perhaps something pink and frilly, she'll be over the moon with delight.  So a start on early present buying for the year.

I had also found in the same shop a cotton blouse in a different colour to one I had bought for myself at the beginning of our so-called summer.  That one had been $48.95.  This was a few cents over $12.  How could I leave it there?

I'm still plugging away on my shawl.  I haven't done any for a couple of days as my shoulders have been very temperamental.  However, I just remembered I have a still longer cord, so if I can find it, I'll take some pictures.

Oh, that's a perfect idea for a gift!! Well done, I always love a bargain!! Now your two blouses are only $30-ish each!! I hope your shoulders are feeling up to knitting soon.
