Thinking About The Future In The Past
In the theatre we enjoy giving opening night gifties.
Sure it can be flowers...but often...if it is a special role.... we look for something with a bit more meaning.
Why yes...I have been a thrifter from way the heck back.
Well....shortly after the hubs and I were married ...I was shopping at T-Towne ....one of my absolute fav-o-rite thrift stores of ALL TIME,when I came upon this cramazing silk vintage scarf.
I seem to recall it cost under a dollar( what I would pay + my newlywed budget was a lot less than today). I grabbed it immediately...thinking how I could give it to my daughter on opening night IF she ever did "R and J". Ofcourse I did not even HAVE a daughter yet...I would not even be expecting a child for about 2 years.
I put it in my rather immense vintage scarf stash and almost forgot about it till opening. I tore my house apart looking for it on opening night(it's still messy)...and found it!
