The Godfather is the I-ching. The Godfather is the sum of all wisdom. The Godfather is the answer to any question.
Joe Fox, You've Got Mail
Well, in my book, You've Got Mail is the sum of all wisdom and I needed some when my heart sank a bit upon seeing a line called Treasures at Michaels, which features a line of floral clothespins. It might sound silly but I felt a bit like the film's The Shop Around the Corner after Fox Books opened its doors.
Their clothespin and my clothespin
Oh, I won't be going "to the mattresses" and as I walked around Michaels, I noticed many new versions of decorated clothespins.
Of course, the Treasures line is lovely and inexpensive. It's Shabby Chic! I did purchase a few things ... for my ... research and analysis.
My hanger and their hanger
My shop Tinkered Treasures is temporarily closed for organizing; it will re-open soon.
I am a lone reed.
Well, probably not.
I'm noticing lots of mass-produced stuff lately that resembles copies of handmade art; I suppose this is nothing new and ... nothing can take away the blissful enjoyment of creating.
