The Day Audrey Hepburn Bought Me Ice Cream

This past weekend, we were in a little town that we've spent summers in for the past 20 years, virtually every year of my kids' lives.

My son was visiting as well, so he and I made a date to get ice cream at a shop I used to bribe reward him and his sister with for good behavior.

We placed our orders, went to pay, and realized that there was a $10 minimum purchase for a credit card.  (Who, me, cash in my wallet?!?)  Even I can't eat $10 worth of ice cream, so I grabbed something quickly to make up the difference before the jamocha almond fudge in my cone started to melt.

It was this reusable shopping bag with the beautiful Audrey Hepburn on both sides.

So, Audrey bought me ice cream.

From now on, Audrey will carry my traveling beading supplies.  After all, she is wearing pearls!

Anything for ice cream--right?

Nice bag Bobbie, I think Audrey would like that you carry your beading in a bag with her picture on it. It is a shame that you have to have at least a five dollar or more purchase in order to use your card at some establishments. I think it is just a way to sell more merchandise.

LOL, great post! Although 10 bucks in ice cream is just a drop in the bucket for me!
