On my desk...



One night, during the course of changing the blade in the box-cutter, I left the old one on the edge of my workbench.  (That's me- Safety Sally!)  After spilling some water, I was cleaning and saw a ghost image of the blade where it had been laying.  We figured it had something to do with the oil used to treat the blade.  It looked awesome, as it was the same color as the real thing.  For some reason, a few weeks later I attacked it with sharpies.  Wish I would have left it alone though, the trompe l'oeil effect even freaked me out.  Sometimes if I was brushing my desk off in a hurry, I'd see it and think, "Ahhhh, I almost cut myself!"  before realizing it was the ghost blade.

This is too strange! :-) You commented on my blog a couple of days ago and asked me if I was 'hooked' after making my 1st posted ATC. The answer to that is a big YES but I haven't had time to do much since then. Work has been a bit crazy and I've been too lazy to do anything more than sit in my recliner. With my laptop of course haha

Have a great Thursday!!

Oh my gosh! I say Safety Sally too!

Is this a real character or merely great minds thinking alike?

T- I understand about wanting to kick back and relax, good for you. Everything gets so hectic this time of year, it's good to take time for yourself.

Virg- I'm thinking, great minds... occassionally I'm also known as, Negative Nancy and Bitchin' Betty

I'm terrible at leaving things laying that may not be very safe! I totally get it! Just a funny little reminder on your desk!

hopefully, I'll get better at remembering because it's all fun and games until I chop my own finger off. I thank goodness that my iron has automatic shut-off :)
