I haven’t done one of these object posts in a while but it occurred to me that there might be someone else out there who has a thing for clippings – those things from cut from various places like newspapers, magazines, brochures, or wherever.
Honestly, I can’t remember when I first clipped and saved something. It might have been a comic strip or valuable advice from a columnist. It could have been a recipe or a recommendation. Although if I was very young, I don’t think it would have been a recipe. I was more interested in licking the bowl than sorting out what went into it.
I came across this old clipping when I was going through a box over the summer. (By the way, where did all those summer days go now that it’s already almost October? If you’ve got any insight, it would be warmly welcomed!)
I cut the above out from our hometown newspaper ages ago when I was a teenager. I was big into sewing my own clothes and when I saw the drawing of the girl at the sewing machine, I’m sure it resonated with me. Now I am looking at the copy below the drawing and thinking about the advice; trying to sort out how to make the best use of the time I have left before the show I heading to in just a few short weeks. Eeek!
