Jen and Linette were not nearly as enthralled with my owl as I was. Make that "not at all enthralled", but after I carried it around for a while, it just felt right and I knew he was coming home with me. I also scored two Pyrex casserole dishes to fuel my new obsession, which I think Dharma might have been implying I have too many of already...oh my dear, just think of how bad it'll get when I'm an old lady with nothing else to focus on! My collection obsession is pretty much only going to spiral out from here, I'm fairly certain! Anyway, here are the beauties - I wish I could have found some other colors, but these are pretty great. I also found 3 Fire King mugs, which don't make me quite as happy as Pyrex, but are swell nonetheless.
Oh yeah, and those two paint-by-number horse pictures in the background - another find that had to come home with me! admit it, they're fantastic! And maybe for those fond of the less kitchy, I scored this handful of silk scarves!
Seriously - I picked up one and it was like finding penny after penny on the ground - there was another color and another color and another color! There are about 5 that are all the same - 100% silk, hand rolled edges, made in Japan, in various colors - hot pink, purples, and one acid green. Then there are a few others that just seemed to go with the set that were prints with the same tones in them. Sometimes I think of making a framed wall hanging of lots of scarves all sewn together like a silky patchwork. I do a lot of thinking though - not so much "doing". So those are the highlights I guess - there's more - a giant bag more! some clothes that need to be altered, a yellow striped scarf from the Gap, an old 70's book about houseplants - you know, the stuff that makes life fun! And speaking of fun, thanks for coming down, Jen and Linette, and for making my weekend! I love ya!
