I am a collector of junk and whatnots. Miniature junky whatnots especially make me happy. It doesn't really matter where it comes from... lying in the street, the Chik-Fil-A play area, dragged home by my daughter. Odd button, 1960's wooden Little People doll, salt dough letter "F" from preschool, John Ritter Three's Company sticker that my friend Vu gave me in high school, miniature versions of world monuments... if it is remotely cool, it goes in my Random Box.
I am also an avid reader of the I Spy and Can You See What I See? books. (Anna has no interest in them, but I still pretend that I am checking them out of the library for her.) I had this extra mirror hanging around and starting thinking about my Random Box and "I Spy" and... behold. Yet another large weird project that leaves my husband rolling his eyes.
My problem is this... I am actually running out of whatnots. So, to all my friends and family, if you could keep your eyes peeled for oddwads that you find endearing or special, and save them for me, I would be honored to add your contribution to my I Spy Mirror.
Thank you and good night.
