We FINALLY did it...

...together!! When I was in my early 20's, my Daddy would take me all the time. I really didn't appreciate the value of it then. Now that I'm nearing 40, I've learned to appreciate the value of vintage...of getting BETTER WITH TIME, BAYBEE!!! Saturday, my husband and I let the littlest boys sleep in while we went walking. We decided to treat ourselves to a Smoothie and saw an estate sale sign. I thought the hubbs would roll his eyes at me...'cause sometimes he just doesn't see the vision...but he was ALL IN!!! I'm SOO glad we didn't miss it because we SCORED! Anyone who knows how much I stitch on my layouts will understand how I felt when I saw this
I was trying to be all COOL so they didn't jack the price up because I was DROOLIN'!!! The tiny skeins are an arm and a leg in the store...can you IMAGINE how much these THIRTEEN rolls would have been??? I'm SURE I would have had to part with a child or a lung! And I love the wrappers with the original prices on them

I already have a special page in mind for some of them! I don't think I'll have to buy much floss for the next FEW years...unless I run across more at another estate sale!!!
I do plan on hoarding these...but I CAN be convinced to part with one! If you want one of your own to hoard, just leave a comment on this post (and make sure you're a follower!) I'll pick a random krafter to send one to!)

My Mom turns 60 tomorrow and the hubbs and I are having a small get together for her this weekend. We're cooking the majority of the food...including the Man's awesome Spinach Dip! Spinach makes my head spin around like Linda Blair in the Exorcist but I LUUUUV the Man's dip! We planned to use a large chafing dish to keep it warm until we saw this
at the estate sale!! Isn't he CUTE???
I was like, "WE.HAVE.TO.HAVE.IT! Now that I've seen it, nothing else will DO!" It really IS the perfect size AND the perfect price
But WAIT! The Man talked the peeps into taking $10 for the fondue pot AND the floss...AWWWWESOME!!!! That's DEFINITELY in the budget! At first, I researched ways to polish copper. But, I like the vintage look better so I just cleaned it up. Can't WAIT to put it to use!!!!
