is there anything as wonderful?

The moment I pull into the parking lot of my local thrift store my heart starts to race. I feel anxious and excited at the same time. Anxious (I'm kind of ashamed to admit) because I feel like people are snapping up the items of my dreams while I am in the parking lot getting ready to go in or even in the next aisle to me .... it must be an illness. But the excitement far outweighs anything else. The thrill of walking down a cluttered narrow little path and coming across the greatest tea towel or adorable gravy boat ..... I really do promise pictures will come eventually.... is enough to make even the worst day turn into a basket of delights.
I am really excited about the re-opening of the New Horizons Thirft Shop . I have been asked to make the curtains for the changeroom... I was thinking about piecing together jeans and sweatshirts in sort of like a quilt but I'm not really sure that it is a feasible idea... I should really figure that out since I have to have them done for MOnday.
Today is going to be a day of wiping noses, changing bums and breaking up toddler disputes.... I will hold close to me the feeling of treasure hunting in hopes it gets me through the day, or at least until Sri gets home (a flair for the dramatic I would say)
