Last year this was a key chain. I never listed it and decided to remake it into a necklace.
It cracks me up.
It was cut out of an old Harold Robbins novel.
He was the "hot" romance/trash novelist of the time in the 60's and 70's.
Pretty racy stuff back then.
I added some fun old beads.
It's really long, too.
I have no idea WHAT this woman is doing.
I thought the picture was great, though.
This came out of a less trashy romance novel.
Romance novels are very popular at the library where I work.
The funny part is so many of the women who read them
apologize for checking them out!
This always makes me laugh.
And I say,
"We just check out your materials. We don't judge."
Then I wink and tell them to enjoy it.
The sweetest library story about romance novels is this one.
An older woman who has long since passed on used to
check out a lot of them. She was so much fun. I really miss her.
She was very outspoken and would just blurt out the most
One day, she says,
"Do you know why I read this junk?"
I didn't know what to say.
So, I kept quiet and smiled.
I want to remember
what it was like."
That always brings a smile to my face.
She was a wonderful lady.
And that - is a wonderful memory.
