Why I like junk shopping so much
You know how you have some days that are rather unspecial? Today started out like that. I spent the morning doing my normal day-job stuff, then took the car to the panel beaters (don't ask), then went to the bank. All very ordinary. Just before hopping back into the dented car, I popped into the op shop to have a wee squiz. Well, there it was, this little hand-turned blackwood bowl. I so love it. It whispered "I will be so happy at your place" and I knew it was right. I paid my $1 and left feeling so light hearted. The day just got better after that. Harry, Sylvie and I played outside in the sandpit for hours and then I came in to the most amazingly lovely email from my friend Julia. Thanks Julia, I love that you love the things I made!
