Another Scissors

The long-awaited, highly anticipated "Sonia" Gingher scissors are out. I got mine yesterday.

They look pretty much like the pictures I had seen on the internet previously. Not too much variance on this one.

Today my mom would have been 82. Her first birthday she's not here happens to be on a Thursday, her favorite day of the week. She called Thursday's "maids day off". She cleaned on Tuesdays and Fridays and did laundry/ironing on Mondays and Wednesday. So on Thursdays she usually went "bumming", aka a trip to the knitting store. LOL! Happy Birthday Mom! I miss you lots.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Jill, What a sweet sentiment to your mom!! I especially like the part about the "maids day off", looking at my house, that would be nearly EVERYDAY for me!! YIKKKEES....I cant clean, I've gotta stitch!

Take care my friend, Faye
