This is a magic (I'm sure) hammer....it is purple floral and comes from my friend Macrina who got it for me at the Blue Bird Circle Resale shop in Houston. (The shop is mentioned in the mystery novel/altered book, "Journal: The short Life and Mysterious Death of Amy Zoe Mason" by Kristine and Joyce Atkinson ....)
The hammer handle open and contains several screwdrivers.
Just what a gal needs in her art/sewing studio!
This auburn haired mermaid ornament found me again! She was the only mermaid in a Christmas shop in Flagstaff...all ornaments were on sale.
She seems to be playing a lyre...rather similar to angels!
I am trying to buy fewer "things".....but as an indecisive Libra, I waiver!
Most "things" are made in slave labor camps in China under a brutal regime (they executed a person recently for "errors")....and our balance of trade is way out of wack..
Everything for sale where I work is made in China.....and it was getting to be that way with most of the fabrics in my quilt shop (they might be printed elsewhere, but the goods were woven in China).
the good side is that countries who are trading partners may think twice before going to war.....
I think the only place now to find local goods is in re-sale shops!
