Object: Clippings

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!


  1. Eek, is right! Is the the adorable little mouse's name?
    I've been clipping forever! First project when I retired was to organize all the recipes.

  2. Cute! Clipping and rat!
    Hugs, Lisa

  3. I think the clipping is adorable, and the rat is a sweety.

    Thank you for visiting me this morning, and your wonderful words of encouragement. I will pray the show you are heading too will turn out wonderfully for you. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers.


  4. As for time going quickly, it all has to do with age. Haven't you noticed that the days, weeks, months and years are going more quickly? I noticed it a while ago. (BTW, I am older than you and so my time goes quicker than yours) ;-)

  5. Darling clipping.
