Left Behind

I spent the last six days in Portland, Oregon. As usual, I had many amazing adventures and took lots of pictures, which I hope to share here in the very near future. For now, here's a picture of one of the treasures I had to leave behind. 

It's a vintage paper cutter which I found at a Goodwill store for only $14.99. I really wanted to bring it home but it was quite heavy. Even before I got to the airport and learned my suitcase weighed 48.5 lbs, I knew I wouldn't be able to carry it home, the combination of the wooden body and metal handle was too just too much. 

Instead, I begged my friend Michelle to buy it and she did. I'm happy to know it found a good home and if I'm very lucky, I might be able to visit it again some day!
