All in a day!


Maybe if I post enough pictures that look like Spring the weather will take the hint.  I am wrapping up a very busy short week here as my kiddos are starting "Spring Break" on Thursday.  Taxes are completed, lake house is ready for fishing, cars are set for travel, pet sitters contacted, etc.  I had two hours on Monday to sneak into a favorite flea market stop and grab some goodies.  


A bouncing baby buggy for the perfect potted plant.


These Shawnee nursery planters were marked down.  I see pincushions in my future.


A McCoy string holder and a glitter paper mache bird.  Love the colors.


Box full of vintage sewing notions and paper graphics.


The cutest set of gingham apron in Easter egg colors.  The stitching is divine.  How they sandwiched the
rick rack between the stitches.  I truly use these as specimens to study and learn from.  Using the gingham blocks as the pattern...so easy I would have never thought of it.
A wonderful heartfelt thank you to the blogging community who has linked to me or posted about me.  You all have been so kind.  This is such a great place to share and learn.  I appreciate all of the comments and good wishes.  I am thrilled to be a part of such a talented community.

Love your idea for the buggy! I have a doll buggy-just need to bring it down from the attic and buy a potted plant. Thanks for giving me this excitement about something I already have!

Looks like you had a wonderful day of shopping. I can't wait to see what you do with all your goodies. I've been scouting out doll buggies and haven't found any quite as delightful as your green one. Enjoy your upcoming spring break.

PS. I'm not quite sure how to handle my conference travels without the family. It's almost "too" quiet.

That doll buggy looks like one my sister had in 1922 or so. Love all the work on those aprons, yes you could learn from those what details they have.

Hi Renee, I've been catching up on past posts. I can't think of green and yellow now without thinking of your craft room. The yellow shelf you made over is just wonderful. I find such inspiration from your projects. You laundry room post was especially fun. It has me in the mood to stitch days of the week towels. I just wanted to let you know our monthly tag swap is still happening if you are still interested. Whether just for yourself or to be partnered with someone at the end of the year, it is such a pleasure to have your talented work included. Have a great week! Elizabeth
