Aqua Bulb Bribery

Confession. I found these a few days before Christmas.
It was too late for me to do much with them.
Ninty Nine cents for each box.  I could hardly just leave them at Goodwill.

I tried to walk away.  I promise, I did.
But each little vintage aqua bulb kept staring at me all pathetic and needy.

"Jeanne, Jeanne."  They peeped.
 "Please don't leave us here, all vintagey and lonely. We're aqua for pete's sake."

I had a Woolworth's near me growing up.  It closed down years ago.
I picked up the 2 boxes, carried them around a bit, then put them back.
'Nah, I don't need them. More stuff to store.' 
 I kept telling myself this.

Yeah right. Who am I kidding. 
I came to my senses, went back and picked them up.

"thank you, thank you." they piped up again as I laid my 2 bucks down.

Sheesh. Aqua Weakness.

xo Jeanne.


  1. Ok you had to do it and I am glad you did! Happy New Year!

  2. I have some pretty aqua balls (ornaments) that I like so much that I couldn't bear to put them away. I've left them in a glass bowl in my living room. Who says they have to be for Christmas only? As long as they don't have Santas on them, I think they can just be pretty glass balls! No?

  3. I'm so glad that you did! The aqua color is just beautiful!

  4. Looks more like extortion than bribery to me. Just remember not to trust them. I'll bet they have friends at other thrift stores that will try to get you to buy them too. Stay strong!

  5. We're AQUA for Pete's sake!!!
    Can't argue with that logic! No regrets, baby!

  6. Oh well this is completely understandable. I would have brought them home in a Boston minute!
