I met a couple of pretty mad people while I was out and about last week. They knew that I had gone to a halloween party and I didn't invite them. They tried to cut off my ears. I moved very quickly and they just got the end of my nose. Shellie, does your butler do plastic sergery? I managed to tape the tip of my nose back on with some tuck tape.

It didn't stop me from visiting Aunt Elsie's Trinkets and Treasures in West Jordan. She's so cute, she didn't care if my nose was duck taped on.

The owner, shared with me and another shopper - a story - a story that became the beginning of Aunt Elsie's.

Years ago, she lived by an older couple that she quickly became friends with. The Elderly women had to go to the nursing home and that left her husband all alone. No children, no family members at all. Her little family steped up their love and kindness. They made a lonely man part of their family. Soon the sweet wife died, that was a very sad day for my new friend and the man that they were beginning to love. The years passed and they weren't kind to the old man. His heart was borken and he missed Elsie so. One day he too left this world - for a better one. In doing so, he had left his home and all of the treasures within it, to a very kind family who had shown him love and kindness untill his very end. He left everything - the house - everything. Thus, is the beginning of Aunt Elsie's Trinkets and Treasures.

As we listened, boxes and boxes were opened that were full of vintage jewles and pearles. It will be so fun to visit the shop and see all these special treasures. I'm sure I'll buy a few. Come out and visit the shoppe, and meet a very special gal.
I've gotta go, my nose is starting to drip blood - I guess I'll go get it fixed.
