How Do You Measure Up?

Yesterday, my Ma hands me a garbage bag.
You know the saying 'one {wo}man's trash is another {wo}man's treasure...',
Well, inside that bag was a whack of old measuring tape.
(and I do mean a whack, a few at 165'each)
I had just bought one which I used on my
Altered Tray of Curiosities and loved the look.
So, to celebrate my good fortune, I am offering 1 length each (9') to the
first 5 people who leave a comment on this post.
{you must already be a member...or join, we like new people}

Is it sad that a bag of 'garbage' can get me so excited?
Thanks Ma!

Good-luck Alanna&Braden at Track & Field, I hope the rain holds
off and that Sassie and I will be there to watch you!
I know you will both do GREAT!
Love Aunt Jazzie
