I had a great week-end of shopping. I missed not being out last week, and boy, were there a lot of sales last week. So, this week-end I made up for it. We went out Friday morning, hit an auction that evening and then went saling again the next day. I always end up putting many of my things away, before I ever think about taking pictures of them, but here are a few items I still had out.
Here is a wonderful dress form I found this week-end. I haven't ever seen one quite like her. She's a keeper, but that means I will have to let go of one I already have. My son thinks I'm starting to collect these and thinks it's kind of creepy. What a funny guy!
I thought this little porcelain bird was sweet and he seemed to find a wonderful place to land.
I was able to pick up a few pieces of furniture also. Riley always thinks he needs to test each piece.
And last, I had my parents over for dinner last night, celebrating my father's birthday. #1 cooked an authentic German feast with sauerbratten, red potatoes and ginger gravy, asparagus spears with hollandaise sause, and sauteed mushrooms. It was good! "He's da best!" Mom brought me a beautiful bouquet of dahlias from their wonderful yard which is full of flowers and vegetables. Well, I think I benefited from their visit as I filled up my ice bucket with lot of pretty flowers. Don't flowers just brighten up a place. She also made me Russian Teacakes, my favorite! They must be my families favorite too as they are disappearing rather quickly.
Thanks for stopping by! I always love hearing from you!
