Today it was the magnet that was holding the invitation that really caught my eye...one of my many Erika Oller pieces. During the years when my shopping hormones were raging, I sometimes satisfied my 'need for things' by making a small purchase....lipstick, nail polish, a card, a scarf, a magnet. That's when I discovered the fat ladies. I think I identified with their perils and justifications....the dreaded summer debut of the swimsuit, eating pie and declaring "it's just fruit", or looking in the closet to discover a "shrinkage' problem.
Someday, when my daughters are left to clean out my belongings, and they find my desk drawer crammed with unsent greating cards, they will get a good laugh from the same cards that made me smile and gave me reason to make a purchase.
