I caught myself.....

...being my grandmother, today.  It's the second time this week.  First, I folded a slightly used piece of tinfoil and stuffed it in a drawer for another day.  Now, I've ripped a zipper from an old skirt to use again.  As much of a "upcycle - a - holic" as I am, I have never done that before. 

It made me think of my grandmother and the sewing basket I inherited from her.  It's not really a basket at all.  It's an old cookie can that's well worn, for sure.  It's full of buttons and thread and odds and ends.  Ever so often, I open it up and poke around.  I always seem to find something new, something I never noticed before. 

I've never had the heart to use anything out of it even though I know she'd want me to...
