Are kids ever too old to be spanked? 'Cause I'm thinking even though Soccer Son is 30 years old, I owe him one! Sheesh!
I've seriously never thought of myself as naive in any way, but I guess yesterday's post proved me wrong, eh? I'm happy so many of you were amused though. THAT joke's certainly on me!
I thought I'd show you some of my safer thrift store finds. No Post It notes on any of them!
I came across this little Limoges creamer at Goodwill. It's really not my style, but I thought it might be collectible so I brought it home. There are no chips and it's initialed on the bottom "J.E."--presumably the person who painted it.
And just in time for the upcoming season--
I've admired these pumpkins at JoAnns and elsewhere the last couple years. When I found this little one for 99 cents, I thought it was a fairly good deal.
You know how I love cherries, right? Even though there was just one salt/pepper shaker rather than a pair, it has CHERRIES on it, so I couldn't pass it up! It looks like Mary Engelbreit, but I don't know if she ever designed for Sakura. Debbie Mumm has, so maybe it's one of her designs? I don't know, but I think it's sure cute.
Buttons. Who could pass those up?
I found the hand embroidered dish towel at a little thrift store when I was on the way to stitching and tea at the quilt shop, so I brought it for show and tell. I tried to tell them I made it, but I couldn't keep a straight face. Well, and I'm sure Gran wouldn't have believed me, even if I was a more talented actress!
Finally, and NOT from the thrift store at all, THIS book came home with me yesterday:
I've picked this book up a couple times at a couple different places and admired it--I thought maybe it was time to buy it and bring it home. Cute projects in it!
My friends and acquaintances on the east coast have been on my mind today. Manager Man, the Wild Child's boyfriend, is in the Hamptons to work at one of the restaurants his bosses own, and so far he's fine. I can't think of any other personal friends or family members in the direct path of Irene, but I know several bloggers who may be affected and we have friends a little further inland who will at least get some nasty weather and other inconveniences. We will all just have to wait and see what tomorrow brings, although with the anticipated power outages, it may be awhile until they're all back to normal. In the meantime, I'm hoping and praying this storm isn't nearly as bad as has been anticipated.
