again. Two outings this week and here are a few of my finds...in case you're wondering what I've been up to this week since a blog update has been non-existent!
couldn't help it...the pig was too stinkin' cute to leave behind! I figure she would be right at home atop some books etc. She's enjoying herself at the moment plopped right in the center of some lovely china on silver trays and platters. I am a sucker for old china and tarnished silver/silverplate.
loved the art glass vase! Color color color! My favorite thing!
found these today...an old Nash's Coffee jar...trying to decide whether to paint the lid or not. And inside..oh be still my beating heart! I found some pieces of coral! Never did I think I would find such glorious things here in the Dakotas...at a tag sale no less!
more COLOR! some glass floats...and a string of ceramic chili peppers! ay caramba!
was thrilled to come across this great rug! Acorns!!! :o) The backing needs tacked down in some spots, and it obviously needs some sort of cleaning (Alice...any suggestions on bringing this back to life a little?). I love it! It all still looks to be in tact. She done good at her hookin'! ;o)
found this tin at Goodwill.....was greeted with the same question "What are you going to do with THAT?". My answer was I loved the colors...loved the buildings..looked like a European street scene...I have no idea. Got home..and walaah...my DPNs fit perfectly inside! It now resides beside my little Staffordshire china dish find, which holds a few needlework necessities!
I've been knitting on the second sock...and going "hmmm...I don't remember doing it this way on the first one"...so we'll see if they end up being the same or not. I think I'm doing the second one more correctly.....like, I don't remember when I turned the heel on the first one doing a round of decreases and then a round of knitting and then another round of decreasing. I feel like I skipped the round of knitting! EEEEK! We'll see. The first sock does fit. Albeit snugly. So we shall see! :o)
Have stitched a little bit on Ann....and sewed a teensy tiny bit. But now the weekend is here. The hubs loaded up the boat and headed out to the Missouri for some fishing, so I can get tons done! Creative updates coming soon!
Hope your week's been great!
