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: for my bday). And he watches them and looks for them as much as I! Well, he had bit on this one: 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: 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: ...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 husband in the world
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.

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

Lonnie rocks! 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!
