View Full Version : Gotta Do Some Bragging....

And, I imagine ya'll know who I'm bragging about, too!
Okay, 1st of all, Lonnie knows that I've started collecting vintage yarn/wool holders (Amy [horve1] gave me my 1st one:http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/Yarn%20Porn%20and%20Other%20Goodies/th_hommeryarnholderfromamy.jpg (http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/Yarn%20Porn%20and%20Other%20Goodies/hommeryarnholderfromamy.jpg) for my bday). And he watches them and looks for them as much as I! Well, he had bit on this one: http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/Yarn%20Porn%20and%20Other%20Goodies/beehivewoolholderlostonebay_edited-.jpg and we happened to be on the phone together when the auction was ending and we lost in the very last few seconds...oh, I had not known he had bid on this until I saw it on Ebay after he had bid on it! Well, we lost, then we saw a gorgeous one that had a minute left and we won this: http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/Yarn%20Porn%20and%20Other%20Goodies/th_bakelitefloralbexwoolholderfromebay.jpg (http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/Yarn%20Porn%20and%20Other%20Goodies/bakelitefloralbexwoolholderfromebay.jpg) All bc he was surprising me with the 1st choice and we ended up with the 2nd (Amy has one like this, but i believe her's is a cream color.).
AND....as if that weren't enough, I heard the mailman and saw a package on the steps, opened it and saw this: http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/Yarn%20Porn%20and%20Other%20Goodies/th_lacestylesurprisefromlj4-9-07.jpg (http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/Yarn%20Porn%20and%20Other%20Goodies/lacestylesurprisefromlj4-9-07.jpg)...he had seen me reading it at one of the yarn shops where we stopped in St Augustine...I've said it before and i say it a
gain...I have the very best :heart: husband :heart: in the world :inlove:
LOL, it's 3a.m. and I can't sleep for a few reasons and so I decided to do a little bragging on my Honey!

Lonnie is a dream. Perhaps he could give a few lessons to the other hubbies out there? ;-)

Hope you're doing well. :hug:

As usual, Lonnie rocks. Those yarn holders are so cool. I didn't even know such things existed.

:cheering: :cheering: :cheering: Lonnie rocks! :hug: :hug: :hug: to him for taking such great care of you!

I've never seen those vintage yarn holders before. :?? We love to go antiquing so I'll have to keep my eyes peeled now! :cheering:
