My friend Donna works at a consignment shop and often will save me "stuff" that will get tossed out. She knows I like different junk and she will pick something that is perfect. And amazingly it's just at the perfect timing for what I am currently "in".. which is faces painted on brushes, etc.
Forks too.. this was a wooden salad fork who has metmorphised into BUBBLES! She is perky, and she loves polka dots. And color. And parties. And up people.
Asking the universe for more cool stuff... :)
