Thrifty treasures and a cosy porch
I visited the thrift store this morning and had a leisurely browse. Didn't find much but that's okay. It was fun. I did find these cute little bowls. They were .25 each. I also found a Harry Potter mug for my GD who is a big fan.
I came home with a nice stack of cooking magazines to look through while doing my porch sitting. This is my swing where I spend my free time reading and sipping tea.
This is the 'wrong' side of my old quilt. There seemed to be a lot of sunshine coming through the skylight and I didn't want the right side to fade. I guess an antique quilt should be protected from the sun completely but I'm determined to actually use my lovely things. If they fade or get broken then that's okay. At least I'll have the pleasure of seeing them used.
At the other end of the porch is this spot where my DH and I eat our meals in the summer. Unless we're all eating together, then we need the big table inside. I'm looking for a different round tablecloth for this glass topped table. I'm thinking something blue and yellow would be lovely.
On Saturday we were at a garage sale and I was looking at this slightly faded old box with magnetic closure. The woman whose gs it was said I could have it. She didn't want anything for it because it smelled of lavender and she was allergic. She just wanted to give it to someone. Now I will figure out what to keep in it.
I hope you had a pleasant Tuesday. I know I did.
I always love to read your comments.
