I realized yesterday, that when the weather is gloomy and sad, I like to call people on the phone just to chat away the time. That means I ended up spending quite a bit of time talking with my sisters yesterday! We cover all the topics: food, kids, exercising, clothes, sewing, you name it, we probably talked about it.
And over the course of our meandering conversation (don't you love how conversations do that!), my younger sister mentioned that her girls like playing 'store.' They have the fake food, a little cash register, and even a little grocery cart (I think. I may have added the grocery cart in my head.)
But what their store is without, is miniature grocery bags. And more specifically, little market bags that look remarkably like the real thing. Even down to having the repeating red THANK YOU on them. So, being a sucker for miniature things, I decided to make one. Right then.
It's not exactly like the real thing, but a very cute version if I may say so. Yikes, I love it!
I guess rainy days are good for something! (Well, something other than putting all that wonderful water in our lakes and rivers.)
