Let me tell you how it will be

"There's one for you nineteen for me.  'Cause I'm the taxman....."
Love that Beatles song.  Don't love that this is what I'll be doing on my day off.
But -
On to happier days.
Like last Friday for example.
A friend and I went to an estate sale.  Here's what I found:
These are old cocktail straws.  These are the colorful cellophane ones that used to always come in mixed drinks.  Remember Highballs?  Does anyone ever order a Highball anymore?   I'm not even sure I know what that is!  But the straws are really pretty.  I have NO idea what to do with them.  I am open for suggestions.


I even love the box they came in.  


I bought another crystal lamp.  This one cost me eight bucks.  The one I rehabbed for my daughter was only $1.99.  I taught myself how to rewire lamps using a tutorial on Youtube.  Now I can't stop. -  help me, please.
Holy cards.  I've been keeping an eye out for these.  Aren't these just gorgeous?!!  I bought quite a few since they were only .25 cents a piece.
The colors are just amazing.
Love these.  I hope they bring me peace.
I'll need it after visiting the taxman.
Have a great day!

Sorry about the taxman ... I have that little project on my to-do list yet. And HIGHBALLS! That was the one drink my parents made, one time a year, on Christmas. No idea what was in them but apparently the holidays with us kids drove them to drink. -amy

Kathy,
I love those cellophane straws, they remind me of being a kid & going out to eat with my P's. Back in the day you didn't get bottomless drinks. So we were allowed 1 soft drink & it came in a tall glass with those straws & a cherry! Love the religious cards too, I collect them. I'm just getting around to posting my Alice swap & I got one of your tags. Love it, I'm posting today. Lisa
