Happy Monday, dear readers! I’ve got a little surprise for you today!
Now I realize that sometimes, surprises are not a good thing. When I lived with my dear grandma (bless her soul!), and she didn’t know what to make for dinner, she’d take random leftovers from the fridge, do a little off the cuff improvising, and SURPRISE!
But this surprise, I promise, is a good thing. I wrote, not long ago, about what a challenge it can be sometimes, to come up with a blog post. Sort of like coming up with something for dinner. Last night I had several ideas, but alas, nothing came of them. And then I thought about the vintage jar I found at Goodwill a few weeks ago-and inspiration struck!
Here’s the jar I found. A pretty good score as thrift store finds go. And only 99 cents! As I was admiring it, though, after I got it home, I realized something wasn’t quite right. Can you see what I saw? (That reminds me of a song: I joined the Navy, to see the world, and what did I see? I saw the sea! There-I wanted to find a way to work some sailors into this post today!)
So here’s what I’m doing. I’m going to give away those pretty tropical postcards pictured at the top of the post. (Because I’m not authorized to give away any sailors.) If you’d like a chance to win, just let me know in the comments ( And, a correct answer to the jar question will get you a second chance at winning, too!)
I’ll draw a name on Friday and also tell you what I found funny about the jar-but in the meantime, have a great day, and a great week too-and thank you! I truly appreciate each and every one of you!
