So, what did I bring home from the swap yesterday? How about two brand-new wine glasses, with the Pier-1 Imports sticker still on them?
We don't drink wine, but I think strawberry smoothies will look extra-special in them.
I also picked up a small bag of Starbucks coffee. The swapping/stealing went on for six rounds, but I stopped after two because everything I wanted was gone already.
Just as important is all the stuff I got rid of! I told everyone the story about the tea kettle, but one person came in 45 minutes late and nabbed it. (She'll discover its flaws the first time she uses it; that'll teach her to be late!)
I was also happy to find a home for this shirt that I embroidered for my dad about 40 years ago, that he saved for special occasions:
One of the ladies tried it on and it fit perfectly, and she liked it even more when I told her the background.
