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.
