Write 500 words on any topic you like. Now remove 250 of them without changing the essence of your post.

Wow, I can not imagine how this is going to turn out, with so many words being removed. What have I got to lose? I may as well give it a shot.

Something I am interested in was easy. My hobbies are antiques and slavery. I will choose antiques to speak about. I used to go to auctions and yard sales and buy up the cheap stuff, no one else wanted. If it was not in need of much repair, I would fix it. Mainly though I would take off the old finish, and give it a brand new look. Everything that I did stayed natural, putting a thin coating over the wood to protect it from water damages.

I would sell pieces through other auctions or at my home, until I had collected enough extras to open my first store. I loved it, and still do. I also collect black memorabilia. I hope that I can have one authentic black baby doll, before I go to see the Lord.  I just bought my first Sambo cookie jar. I was like a kid in the candy store, when I brought that piece home. It sits beside my authentic Aunt Jemima salt and pepper shakers.

I love costume jewelry! Clear, colored, gaudy, but please no plastic. One blogger from another state sent me a piece this summer, I was ecstatic! It was beautiful.

Thank-you Daily Post for giving me a chance to write for you.
