I finally reunited with the world on a social basis this weekend. After nearly a month of hermit-like behavior in our new home, I decided it was time to get out. Of course I picked a rainy weekend but it didn’t disappoint. It was filled with all things I love. In no particular order I…
spent time with friends, family and family friends
had a girl’s night out with my silly SILs
celebrated a graduation
celebrated a birthday
a yard sale
helped a friend sort through her 96 year old grandma’s antique china and silver
finished refinishing the sunroom furniture
I love, love, love these handmade banners that are made of fabric triangles that are glued to ribbon, I think. The adorable banners decorated various doorways in the house plus their front porch. I don’t know what it is about these little triangles of joy but I just need them in my life!
At the estate sale, I got some vintage Christmas linens which just make me happy. Tablecloth, apron & tea towel plus a 1957 copy of Wizard of Oz. This Dorothy looks different than the one I grew up knowing.
P.S. that’s also a “before” picture of the park bench in the background.
Old burlap feed sacks with sweet graphics. Why didn’t I buy more? I have a project in mind for them and they were available…dammit! Oh but they do smell like gasoline so let’s hope I can get rid of that stench.
This hand stitched (or is it hooked? I think it’s hooked) area rug with vivid yellow, orange and green flowers is a perfect addition to my office. One of these days I will organize it and post pictures of the office.
I think that about sums up my 48 hours of wonderfulness. No pictures of the china at this time. Or the babies.
What did you do this weekend?
