... My Closet

Now here's an interesting little experiment for you.

Today I started pulling clothes out of my closet. Curious to find out where they were made, I inspected the fine print on the tags. Any guesses on what I found?? I'll admit, I was pretty surprised at the results.

It appears that my closet is pretty darn diverse. I had to pull out 13 tops before I ran across any country twice. Here are a few of the locations my garments hail from:

Singapore
U.S.A.
Mexico
Philippines
Honduras
Vietnam
Indonesia
Peru
Sri Lanka
Macau
China
Turkey
Cambodia
Bangladesh
Northern Mariana Islands
Guatemala
Tunisia

I'm not sure what to make of it, but do know that I am going to find out where in the world Macau is.

Silas looks over every toy and object he happens upon to see what it says...he has decided that he doesn't want any more toys "made in China".

Not on subject, but Rebekah said you took pictures from Jenn's shower. It would be fun to see them on your blog.

Well, well Chris. Impressive. :)

That's a cute story about Silas Wendy. :)

Katherine, I did take a few pictures but I've been having camera problems and haven't been able to retrieve them off of my CF card. That's also why there has been a serious lack of my photography on my blog in the past month or so. If I am able to get them, I'll do a post. :)
