Over the next few days, I'll be sharing a few 'lost' items. Well, at least they seem lost to me, because I have found them. It's that simple. These child's scissors, found on a driveway, are the first up for grabs. They are certainly going to be late for school today. There were always boxes of them in every classroom I ever set foot in, and thanks to Captain Kangeroo, Mom had her own playbox set aside with glue, construction paper, lots of odds and ends and plenty of these safety scissors. They all, of course, had rounded ends so if her boys ever got to doing mischief, like running with scissors, the 'damage' would be minimal. Cutting and pasting projects, filling coloring books and finger painting were always were good rainy day fillers. Moms were pretty resourceful gals. Ya, they were!

Hey, those are MY scissors!!ReplyDelete
Must have fallen out of my backpack.
I take those on airplanes because, as with boys, these can cause
minimal damage to airline pilots if I ever went berserk flying to
Actually, I 'lock' my suitcases with plastic cable ties and those need
to be cut if I ever want to actually get into my suitcase.
Could I borrow them?I just broke my little blunt-nose travel-scissors.ReplyDelete
How incredible that the sight of something as simple as these scissors can make so many memories of 'creating' come flooding back, nice!ReplyDelete
p.s. how was the Chris Isaak concert? I think he's fabulous and never miss when he comes to Perth, I did hear that he might be playing at our new Arena early next year, I'll be there..so much better to look at than Elton John haha!
I can tell you about it....it was fabulous! What a great entertainer, and I agree, not bad to look at either.Delete
I lost a tiny little gold ring a while back. Maybe you will find it too.ReplyDelete
Some of them still are, believe me ! :o)ReplyDelete
Yes, these scissors bring back memories of my children sitting at our farm house kitchen table intent on making jack-o-lanterns with their rounded tip scissors. You know the lanterns that you had to cut slashes in black construction paper so you could make the lantern round -- barbaraReplyDelete
I have a plethora of these in my classroom :)ReplyDelete
Hurray for your Mom!!ReplyDelete
We had some just like those in school.ReplyDelete
Up for grabs? I'll pay $1.50 and that's my final offer.ReplyDelete
Those scissors never seemed to do the job for me. Yes, I agree that Moms are often very resourceful. Simple motivation...mental health.ReplyDelete
