“People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone.”

Audrey Hepburn is more than just style; she was an amazing human spirit. In honor of the handbag I found last night, which I named Audrey, I wanted to share my favorite quote from her.

So this weekend is the Historical Morganton Festival. After Kasey got out of class we made our way downtown. First off was Neely D's BBQ. Not only was the BBQ amazing, our plate came with the best hushpuppies I have ever eaten. Basically the festival is a time to pig out and not think about it the nest couple days. We got apple cider slushies from our favorite stand, Knob Creek Farms. I look forward to it every year. Simple things like an apple cider slushie or Thia chicken on a stick is just so good when you wait an entire year for it.

We walked around, fought against ourselves to buy food from every single stand, passed and spoke to everyone we knew, listened to crappy festival band music, and then watched Resident Evil: After Life. It wasn't has horrible as the third, but still not as good as the first two.

I went to the jewelry stand I have gotten a ring from every year for the last three years to add a new one to my collection. I was very disappointed to see they only had the same designs as last year. So no new ring for me. Onward to the other side of the block I found the Habitat Restore booth. I found a handmade coffee cup with a frog crafted on the inside of the lip that looked to be falling in with a look of sheer terror on it's clay glazed face. Kasey and I found this to be the most humorous thing with have seen in a while. I was about to buy it when out of the corner of my eye I saw a black clutch handbag in a box. I reached down and found this beauty:

It was a whopping $1.50. Judging from the style, inside liner, and chain clasps I am pretty sure it's from the 40's. So tonight I will be carrying this to Cabaret!
