I had to run to Pottery Barn yesterday to check out
a couple of rugs my brother and sister-in-law are
interested in for their living room.
I'm helping them re-decorate their downstairs.
I was soooooo close to Amvets that I just had to stop.
You know how it is ...
Look what I found tucked among the
old bed sheets and shower curtains and afghans ...
This D.A.R.L.I.N.G. vintage quit top was marked $4.98.
I was beside myself with pure giddy-ness.
(That's a pretty bad sentence but you get my drift.)
Here she is laid out on my dining room table.
As a lover of vintage fabrics, I'm pretty pleased
with my thrifty purchase.
I'm thinking of asking my mom to teach me how to finish it.
I know very little about quilting but sure appreciate the workmanship.
Someone else must have appreciated the work that went into this
too because it's in lovely, clean condition -
obviously stored carefully for years and years.
What else is new, you ask??
Well, it's COLD outside,
the creek is freezing over with just a band
of water still flowing,
and I'm finally almost over the virus I had.
I didn't get the flu, just a bad respiratory virus.
It's Wednesday and that means pizza with my
parents at our local Italian restaurant.
Tonight my little brother is meeting us to pick up the rug samples.
I love living in the cottage-by-the-creek.
I consider it a huge answer to prayer and a huge blessing.
Stay warm, Friends, and continue to count your
That's what I'm striving to do each and every day.
