A picnic basket of goodies today. I went on a mission to get a Mother's Day gift for my mother. A gift was purchased and a few other things as well.  

Reagan made sure it all checked out...he agrees with my purchases.

The gift for my mother...a sweet boy overlooking the water.

Hallmark Merry Miss package trim.

The sweetest Happy Birthday Apron and E brooch.

Priceless children's hankies

Teeny Tiny (one inch) baby pins.

Perhaps my favorite find....was my dollar bargain bin mint condition...Gingham Book of Embroidery! I will post next week all the beautiful stitches and illustrations!

Oh Renee, you found some great goodies. I love the picnic basket. I saw one at the flea market and talked myself out of buying it twice because I don't know where I would put it and have just regretted it.(we can't have everything) Isn't it a great color of green?

I really love all your finds. I am curious about the gingham embroidery book. I have a few aprons with white stitching on them and have always loved them. The enamel baby pins are so sweet.
