Another typical day in this chaotic dwelling otherwise known as "home". We woke up this morning to a terrifying sound. Something or someone was throwing stuff around in the house. The dinning room to be more precise. As I jolted up and toward the noise I found my darling little Princess Poppy fleeing the scene of the crime...
It seems Poppy found the ironing board to be of particular interest in the wee early morning hours just before dawn. Even though I had the iron unplugged and laying flat on its plate so it wouldn't tip over, she managed to knock it off the ironing board. Demolishing it into several pieces (some of which I have not yet discovered). Miraculously, the ironing at the end of the ironing board didn't go anywhere, its still sitting pretty (pretty wrinkled that is), waiting to be smoothed out with the gentle pressing of an iron that no longer is functional. (Poor wrinkled laundry.)
So, as sad as it all is...I get to buy a new iron. I'm hoping to find one that is as decent an iron as my recently deceased one and affordable.
Any suggestions from my crafty, sewing friends; you modern maidens of pressing perfection, as to a model that reliable and affordable? Love to hear what you have to say.
Keep your hands busy & smile!
