Daily Prompt~Burnt!

Today’s Prompt: 

Remember yesterday, when your home was on fire and you got to save five items? That means you left a lot of stuff behind. What are the things you wish you could have taken, but had to leave behind?

I really wish I would have been able to grab mix trusty Kitchen Aid mixer, but it weighs a TON, so hauling that along with my sewing machine and the other crap I hauled out of the house would have been difficult-and probably pretty hilarious to watch.

I also would have loved to bring my ridiculously large collection of vintage costume jewelry.  Probably not very valuable, but I think it’s pretty cool, and I have a few rare pieces.  I’ll miss that too.

Good thing I grabbed my sewing machine, even though I now don’t have anything to use it with.  Having to leave behind my stash of fabrics and current projects was kinda sorta heartbreaking.

Just one of my cubbies stuffed to overflowing with fabrics collected through the years.

Oh well, no big whoop, it’s just stuff, right?

    • Maybe I should get a couple of cats. My dog isn’t very helpful. I’m sure she’s run outside carrying one slobbery sock in her mouth, which is how she usually rolls. Dumb dog. 🙂

    • I may have a bracelet, but I’m not sure. Bakelite isn’t my favorite. I am a fan of the rhinestone treasures of the 1950’s and I also have a couple of pre 1900 pieces that are pretty special to me. I’ll see if I can find a few nice pieces and do a post about them for the girls who like the old bling bling. 🙂

      ~Hey, are you supposed to be here now? Aren’t you on a schedule or something?

  1. I saw that prompt yesterday, and thought it was a good one. Glad to see you love your mixer like I love my SodaStream, which might be one of my items. That and my laptop, of course. Oh, and my iPad. And my phone. And…

      • Sigh…I love shoes. I have a ton of them, but I have old lady feet now, so most of them I can’t wear anymore. I used to have a job where I had to dress up quite a bit,so I still have all of those clothes. Don’t know what for, but hey, every now and then I have to go to a funeral or something, so I hang on to them. 🙂

  2. Love the stuff you have written … stuff happens but the possibilities of what you would have created with the fabric … but at least you have the sewing machine to start something new. 🙂
