Also, like I said, I opened up my online shop, Resparkable Vintage, so that I could make a little money to support my habit. I recreate, or repurpose vintage jewelry into new, more wearable pieces. I also sell some pieces in their original condition, if they're in great condition and don't need any repairs. Sometimes, it's hard letting certain items go, but I just remind myself that the more I sell, the more I can buy! And, I want to spread these pretty things around- there's really no good reason to hoard them and keep them all to myself.
So, when I ran across this little penguin pin, I fully intended to sell him. I even went so far as to list him in my shop late Friday afternoon.
|such a dapper little fellow!|
Knowing how special he is, I figured my days with him were numbered, so I pinned him to a baby blue sweater I wore to a dinner party on Friday night. He added just the right amount of sparkle I needed, and although he's small, he does make a statement.
This morning, as I was getting dressed, I decided to pin him to another sweater... and again, he added the perfect amount of sparkle and made me feel so happy.
|say hello (again) to my little friend|
I posted something on Facebook about him, and wrote something about my fondness for him. My brother wrote, "Maybe he's a keeper." The second I read that, I knew that was true. Maybe someday I'll be ready to sell him, but not today! He is a keeper. Why in the world was I selling him if I feel this way about him?
So nope, he won't be waddling off into the sunset with anyone else... He's my lucky little penguin and I'm keeping him!
