The almost true exploits of an intrepid spinster and her stitching...and all of the things that make up her crazy, happy, quiet little life.
Oh, sweetheart. No, thank YOU. It's impossible to describe such class in mere words.
Ah sweetie, take care of you!

Your magnificent responses will bring you closure: probably the process has already begun. And, with any luck, it might have shaken the "seller" a little. May she wake up screaming, at least twice a week, until she learns from her experience and yours. Be gentle with yourself, and put your new-old possessions in lots of different places until you find the best ones for them. And feel the love from all of us.
Your comment, Deborah, made me chuckle. One of your sentences read like an Irish prayer, may she.....but then it ended up with a lovely curse! Love it. I hope she wakes up screaming also for being so bad.
Coni, I am so proud of you! Not that you need me to be proud of you --- but you handled it exactly as you should have! May God heap coals of fire upon their heads and fill their hearts with shame for what they have done to you. Enjoy the treasures you were able to recover --- Just know that we are all cheering for your response to the idiot!
So glad to hear / read this!
