I found a table with odds and ends and two or three boxes of doilies. They were 25 cents each, so I dug through and picked out a few.
And I think it was at the same table that I found a tin of old wooden spools. The tin also has some needles and end papers (what are they??) and a musty smelling newspaper on the bottom. The price? $3. What a steal. I found the vintage bias tapes and rickrack from a different vendor. I love the one on the bottom row in the middle. The white with black trim. In fact, I already used it. Maybe I'll share it next week. Besides, it gives me another reason to talk about my trip to the White House! ;-)
a vintage kitchen valance. I love it so. It's very tiny, so I don't know if I will be able to rework it or not.
And, last but not least, Pyrex. I really love the white and aqua (Butterprint) pattern. I found another mixing bowl in a larger size. And, be still my heart, pink Pyrex. I have been wanting pink Pyrex for awhile now. This is the Gooseberry pattern, but I really, really, really love and covet the Pink Daisy pattern. Oh well, it's pink and it's Pyrex, so I snatched it up. (Jenneen, I found some!)
And I will leave you with a photo of Sawyer. The other night at bedtime, he disappeared. Jackson and Mason had just gotten into bed and I was getting ready to put Spenser and Sawyer in bed. Sawyer went missing. I thought he went into Jack and Mason's room (which he does frequently at bedtime and tries to climb in bed with them). Jackson came running downstairs exclaiming, "Sawyer's in your white stuff!" I had no idea what he meant. I had just folded some white laundry, but that the basket of laundry was sitting in the family room. I ran upstairs and discovered the "white stuff" was hand lotion. Gobs and gobs of hand lotion. Not only was Sawyer covered it in. So was my bedroom wall and carpet. Fun stuff. I love being a mother. I really, really do.
I hope each of you enjoys your Mother's Day weekend, however you celebrate it.
