The words all women love to hear.
Especially when it is a husband or loved one saying them. Particularly when he has a triumphant, big grin plastered all over his sweet face and hands behind his back. And, usually, most of us immediately think of something like this.
But ..... sometimes it is surprising what those words can mean.... ... when the "something" arrives in a 6 x 6 inch box in a plastic bag.
I had looked at the art shop, a large hobby shop, and Michael's, all to no avail. Who the heck sells them? I was stumped. But, then on his way home from the office last week, Mr. BV stopped and found this for me.
Shiny. Chrome. And, shiny black too.... she's a beaut!
With a special little lever that creates suction on the bottom so it can be moved to any flat firm surface. A lovely new pencil sharpener! Our old one was just that...really old... actually it was vintage and worked perfectly... til one day somebody knocked it off the workbench because it was not actually screwed into place...sigh... still miss that little burgundy sharpener... it softly ground and sharpened pencils perfectly. This one just doesn't have quite the same feel or sound to it...but, it works a charm.
I was thrilled to get my "something shiny" .....
