I probably am the only person on Earth

Who could get excited about this!

I went to the thrift store to get a sheet so I could cut out my vintage dress pattern and give it a try on something inexpensive before actually taking the dive and cutting into the expensive fabric. I found just what I was looking for. A huge sheet or tablecloth that is plenty big enough to trial run the whole dress. It was only $1.00.

I was heading out to a hair appointment next door when I spotted this in the corner.


Oh Happy Day~Joy~Girlish Giggles

I just could not believe my eyes. Is that what I THINK it is? I undid the buckles and opened this gem up. I got even more giggly inside. It was too good to be true.



I looked around hoping no one else was eyeing it and planning to swoop it out from under me. It had a price tag of $2.50 on it. I wondered if it worked. I closed the lid, but not before noticing it had the directions still with it. It was pristine. I ran up to the register while trying to conceal my delight. "Excuse me Miss, could you plug this in and see if it works?". The sales lady looked at me with a slight smile and said, "sure".

She plugged it in and voila hmmmmmmmmmmmmm. It purred like a kitten and heated up just fine. I closed it down and said, "I'll take it". Walking out the door with a grin the size of Mt Rushmore I thought to myself, "How am I going to hide this from hubby? He will kill me if I bring one more thing into this house." Well I was too darn pleased with myself to worry about it today.

I think it might be a great way to dry my pooches after their bath. Holding them and a hand held dryer AND combing them is difficult.

I will figure that out anther day. Now where the heck are my curlers so I can try this baby out. Stay tuned. :)

I could get excited about that, too, and would probably be figuring out how to hide it from my own husband.

Mom had one that looked just like that! I remember sitting under it when I was little and thinking it was just the coolest thing ever.
