It's a funny thing. We can plan and search and create
to get just the right look, at the right angle,
and have everything in its place~
You see, I found this board at a yard sale for a dollar or two.
It doesn't match a thing in my house.
I had no idea what on earth I would do with it, but
it wanted to go home with me.
As I was thinking,"I don't need more junk," I gave the dollar,
and home with me it came.
(work in progress - please forgive the markings)
Little did I know that day just how much I would use
that board. It has been host to letter-writing,
stitching (nearly every day,) or occasionally just a flat surface
for my tea if I am sitting on the couch.
I keep my little scissor zipper in the upper corner ~
Lesson learned: like a chance meeting that brings you
a best friend, a silly little board has
become a valuable tool to me.
Happy surprises are everywhere just waiting for us.
Until next time,
