I really didn't want to go out on Saturday, I wanted to work in my garden while it was sunny. As always I am glad I did though. Nancy came up to bring some quilts for Barb to sew. Barb is our long arm quilter lady. When we left the bank that is what she wanted to do, she started her own business and is doing very well at it. She is also loving it. Trouble is she is always busy so it was great to see her.
The next picture is Edna and Nancy, doesn't Nancy look happy haha.
We went to Applebees. I got an awesome sandwich. I don't usually like family type places as it can get noisy but we got there quite early and it was great, the food is good.
Well Barb had to go right away because she had a load to do, but the rest of us went thrifting.
I showed them a place I love called The Red Drawer. It sells antiques and crafted items. I just love that place and they did too.
I bought a couple of things. A wire basket for outside. I intend filling it with moss and putting some pots of plants that I can change out through the year. I also found a tin I could not live without. Had a rooster on it and for some reason I have started a collection of items with roosters on. I am going to find some more if I can and in this one I put laundry detergent.
This is the wire basket
After we left there we went to my favourite thrift store. Edna liked it so much she figured Nancy should take a look. Apparently Edna's son also had to go take a look. Maybe I should have kept it secret? Nah, it's not that I need anything. WHat I did get this time was a nice little bowl in the colour I collect.
I saw a chicken that will go out in the garden.
I found two little plates that may or may not become bird baths.
I always pick up doilies. These 50c each.
I think that was just about all we did that day but as always it was a fun day with good friends and a few nice finds.
This part of my blog is all about the things I collect or the things I make myself. I love so many things, I paint and draw and want to learn oils and pastels. I knit and crochet but want to learn tatting. I embroider and can turn my hand to most things given a chance. So much still to learn and do. I live in hope of some day reading all my books, learning all I want to learn and now I am learning to blog. You will often find my original poems, poor as they are I offer them here. I also appreciate other people art and will feature things I find that I have enjoyed. That includes pictures of fairies and fantasy or maybe just anything beautiful.
I try to use my own photo's as much as possible, sometimes I borrow from the web. If I inadvertently use your picture without giving credit, please do let me know and I will either credit or remove it, I hope you will do the same with mine.
If you wish to leave comments on my blog you can do that by joining google if you do not have a blog yourself, please comment if you can I appreciate that.
