This old woman down the street makes flowers. Real pretty.
Makes 'em out of paper and rags--wire--beads--all kinds of stuff.
They's real pretty. She say she can make 'bout $10 a week doin' that. You gots to work at it, she say--ten, fifteen hours a day--just like a regular job.
But if you put in a hard day's work, you can make ten dollars a week. Ten dollars a week and stay home too. Course you gotta buy your own stuff to get started....
