So I never quite understood the apples reference from Good Will Hunting:

Will Hunting: Do you like apples?
Clark: Yeah.
Will Hunting: Well, I got her number. How do you like them apples?

But guess what I got at Goodwill last week?

Christian Dior, one hundred per cent silk apple green blouse. It's made in Hong Kong so I'm guessing that it was made under license. I love the way that the brand name is embroidered onto the inner yoke. And the cufflinks! I don't know whether they are original to the blouse but they're great (and heavy).

And another treasure - this wooden sewing box, made in Poland, complete with dove-tail joinery, which so reminds me of one that my grandmother had.

It even came with a bonus crochet hook and a few shirt buttons inside, so it was clearly in use by someone. I love the way the sides open out accordion-fashion.

Ok, drooling here over your sewing box score.
