Be Afraid...Be Very Afraid

Well, I didn't show you EVERYTHING that I got at the yard sales. I got picture frames, plates, hot curlers, plaques,unique jewelry, curtains, metals and pins from various wars (really -- they're beautiful). All these items together came up to about another $15. OK -- more stuff that I don't need, right? I'll just tuck it away for when I am ready to do that project or perhaps when I'm ready to list it on ebay or maybe my daughter will want it. You see where I'm going.
Did I mention that I watched "Hoarders" last night?
I ALWAYS meet wonderful people at yard sales -- usually the conversation starts with the yard-salee and then evolves to include other yard-salers. You know how it is. Well, somehow I got involved in a conversation about bras with the yard-salee and she said that she had a ton of beautiful bras that she needed to get rid of -- looked like they might fit me she said. Well she brought them over and they were a indeed beautiful, colorful, lacy yet strong bras. I felt uplifted just looking at them - - and I wanted them. I told her that I really didn't need anymore bras, but she obviously saw that look in my eyes. It was covetous, I'm ashamed to say. She simply put them all in a bag and said, "Here, take them."
I took the bras and now I have washed them all with such care and I was admiring them, and wanted to share this wonderful sight with my bloggee friends. Aren't they beautiful? All brand name, of course! Oh -- did I mention...
...THEY'RE NOT MY SIZE!!!
This is how it begins, folks! I'm just telling ya! This is how it all begins.....
