Saturday evening the lens fell out of my prescription glasses.
That tiny little screw on the side
(where you can fix them was just impossible for me to see . . .
even with an old pair of glasses on).
So, yesterday I headed to town to have them fixed.
To my surprise the eye clinic closes their doors
from 12:00 to 1:30 for everyone to have lunch at the same time.
Oh what should I do with my spare time.
Go "Junking" of course.
I found this little doll.
She was wearing a horrible shabby gray satin dress,
that was not in the same period of her hair style.
Her hands and feet were bound in bubble wrap and she sat
there on the shelf, lonely and without a price tag.
When I took her to the counter the lady said,
"I can give her to you for 99 cents".
That was my clue, that she needed to come home with me.
This gray dress, looked more like the 1860's to 1910's.
I didn't think it went well with her bobbed hairdo.
What do you think?
I do not claim to be a doll dressmaker,
but I got out my scrap box and came up with this.
The graphic is from the wonderful
I think she turned out lovely.
All in all it was a pretty good day.
Now I have my regular prescription lens back on my nose and I can see clearly.
My glasses are such a part of me that I feel very strange and naked without them.
I've been wearing them since I was 19 years old.
Have a glorious week,
and if something should arrise where you have some spare time on your hands,
