It took me most of my childhood to realize that I actually enjoy wearing spectacles. I have just ordered two new pairs, my fourth and fifth pairs this year, from zennioptical.com. The tartan pair are their super cheap $8 basics, and the larger brown frames (which I actually ordered in a different color, tortoiseshell) will be sunglasses at $15.
I went to a yardsale today, and along with piles of sheets for the shop, I got this quilt. It was sewn completely up in two white sheets, and I could kind of see a quilt pattern through it. The lady offered to sell it to me for a quarter, and I did not want to ask any questions in case she figured out how much more someone would have paid for it. I got it home and ripped the sheets off and found this! The wormanship is not great, but the colors and over all effect are. The pink rectangles have degraded so much because they are silk. The fading makes me think they were already part of a worn out grament when they were used. Maybe a pink silk dress.
Well, happy except the day I fell off my bicycle twice.
