This morning I was thinking about Saturday Steals, as I again read Camille's blog entry of the week and found myself considering steals in my life. for example Scarlett's Rainbow Brite Pony. (it looks exactly like this one, I can't believe my mad-Googling skills found me this image!) This thing was obviously the real deal from back in 1984. Someone loved and cherished this thing. Could have very well been their FAVORITE childhood toy... a few of her hooves are a bit worn out due to all the trotting along Starlight as done over the years. In fact, they probably held onto it for a good 23 years before finally deciding it was okay to part with it: give it to charity (D.I. in this case) , pay it forward. This person, was willing to part with this gem in order to not allow their home to turn into something like this:
There are toys I remember from my childhood, that I wish I still had to share with my daughter... but, let's face it, it is neither healthy nor worthwhile to allow yourself to be buried in sentimental or useless collecting. And let's face it, who is going to be able to find ANYTHING in a scary pile of a room like that one?
Sorry, the above was sort of a mental tangent, but I feel much better after letting it out of my head! :)
Steals that took place this week:
My friend Marsha says she will probably call me Monday so I can go pick up the infant car seat and bases she has (did i tell you guys that it is pink and brown just like I said I wanted to begin with?!)
My dear sweet friend Brooklin watched Scarlett for us last night for free so we could see the movie Inception. We really liked it and I would recommend it! Just wanted to publicly thank Her for being such a great friend, I love her so much.
