Our project is coming along nicely, or so we thought :)
Coffee ready, music on, space heater going so off into the basement (dungeon) to get to work.
As we started putting together our creations we were feeling pretty good about things.We dumped the stinky glue and the new glue smells a little better, more like the monkey house than the elephant house. So no more elephant dung for us lol.
Cathy was adding the finishing touch on a piece which was a wooden bird with metal feet.
Well, the feet would not fit into the piece so she decided to take the feet off. Well, she broke the feet off and half of the bird as well. Hence the sad photo.
That led us to look around the table and realize we were running out of glass options and needed to make another run to our favorite shop.
Our favorite thrift store is a friendly store called Twice As Nice, where everything we buy goes to a charity that supports families. And we know how important family is to us so we shop there almost weekly. We have gotten to know the owner pretty well, and he is getting used to the quirky twin thing we have going. So today was pretty typical for us, crawling around on the floor to locate the special items that no one else sees on the lower shelves. We found a lot of items that we thought would fit into our plans for creating the new items. Mary spotted a little accent item, and then lost track of where it was when she got distracted by something Cathy said. So as she is frantically searching again for it, Cathy says "What are you looking for", so I said it was a little butterfly thing. Cathy says "Oh you mean this" she had of course picked up the very item I was looking for. Which of course sent us into gales of laughter, no wonder I could not find it, she was holding it among other items.
We finally get up to the front to pay for our items, and the owner greets us with "How are you two today" and we both responded at the same time "We are good how are you". Naturally we are all laughing at this point, and he says can you do that again. We are like "ummm no" at the same time lol. We don't do it on purpose, it happens randomly, without thought or planning of any kind. It is that strange ability that we seem to have that causes us to speak the same thing, pick up coffee cups at the same time, just to name a few.
We are so blessed to be the best of friends, and sisters (twins of the heart). We don't consider our business Twins Treasure Trove to be work. Every day is another day for us to share, bond, and create more memories.
So Live, Love and Giggle
