It doesn’t go very far these days.
My sweet Mama and Daddy talks about the 5-cent Coke and the
25-cent/ gallon gas.
Back in their days, $1 would buy you a Coke, a movie ticket, some
popcorn and maybe even some juju beans.
Today, you can get a McDonald’s burger or a small fry…
“or” being the key word there.
I can fill up my four tires with air, if I hurry.
My grandsons can each get a small plastic toy in a plastic
egg from the grocery store machines which last about
ten minutes before its broken and nothing but fodder in
the floor of my van.
Then, there is the $1 Mecca – known as Dollar Tree.
Not the Dollar Store where they trick you into coming in, only to find
that things costs waaaaay more than $1.
Things cost as much as $2 or $3. What????
I took two of these plain white plates. Total = $2.
And using one of these…
I created some one-of-a-kind Halloween plates.
The spiderweb plate received a 3-D touch with a sparkly spider
clinging to its web. (a dab of hot glue held it on)
I free-handed “potion ingredients” using different fonts, using
Picmonkey as inspiration.
I didn’t create straight lines to use as guidelines, I didn’t do a trial
run on a piece of paper prior to starting.
I just started writing. And scribbling. And doodling.
So, while $1 may not buy you a movie ticket, large soda, popcorn and
juju beans like it used to…
It WILL buy you some cute and totally unique Halloween plates.
They’re better on your teeth than the juju beans anyway.

Scarf on Saturday – for the No-Sew Showcase: Halloween Edition.
