This and That

I totally forgot to show you the pretty old table runners, doilies and hankies I bought at a garage sale last Saturday. They were priced at ten and twenty-five cents a piece. How could I resist?






I love this shabby chic napkin holder that was only a dollar......

and here it is filled with paper napkins and my tiny bouquet of Lily-of-the-valley beside it. I think those flowers smell like heaven.


I guess this is what you can expect to find in your kitchen when a little boy lives in your house. How dear that little fellow is to me. He has no school tomorrow or Monday so I think we'll be spending some quality time together. Today I killed yet another wasp on the porch and he ran for my big magnifying glass so we could take a good look at it.


Thanks for visiting today. I love to read your comments so don't hesitate to leave one.

  1. Your post made me smile, it so wonderful to share antidotes of our Grand children, they certainly are a lot of fun. Loved all your great buys particularly the doilies. The napkin holder was also a great delight. Have a wonderful weekend.

  2. Beautiful linens. There used to be such pretty things , handmade, for the home. It's a shame to think that people now toss them out for a quarter. You scored!!

  3. I just love those old dresser scarves and things that you found, and what a good price! The dresser scarves embroidered with baskets and flowers remind me of my mother's sisters. They all had those scarves on every table. I know you must enjoy having that sweet little grandson living there.

  4. As a child I sat with my great aunt Lizzie (my grandfather's aunt) as she tatted doilies that looked like that. It hurts my heart that someone disregarded them enough to place them in a garage sale. At least they went to someone who does appreciate them.

  5. Excellent price on the old linens. I looked at some today at MCC half price sale, but resisited! Your grandson would have enjoyed seeing the big spider at Oliver that caught a bee. I took some pictures, but they didn't turn out very well.

  6. Grandchildren sure make life interesting, don't they! Pretty linens. Just think the work that went into those. They probably did that instead of spending time on the computers and Iphones. Love the smell of Lily of the Valey! Nancy

  7. Those old pieces of handwork took hours to create. And now to many folks they are almost without value. That does make it nice for collectors like you. I have some pieces that my grandmother made that I treasure.

  8. Sounds like you are having fun with your Grand! Lovely old linens, I am trying to stop collecting them but at 25 cents or ten cents each I wouldn't be able to resist either. The embroidery is beautiful! :)
