This has been a fun day! I was off work today so Julie, her DD Meghan and I all met in Holly to go to Holly Hill Primitives! to shop at the most wonderful prim, antique store. I met Dawn via her blog and had such fun meeting her and her assistant, Debbie. You must go, if you ever get the chance!
Dawn is on the left and that's me, double chin and all, on the right!
Julie and I bought all kinds of goodies - it's probably a good thing for me that this darling shop isn't closer to me than it is.
That's BFF Julie on the left with her sweet Meghan between the two of us (I never realized I was quite as short as I am!). That big, kind of green, taupe colored quilt rack behind us came home with me. I LOVE it! It fit perfectly between the posts of our bed and I can't wait for Rob to hang it. I felt bad though because as they were taking it down, a candle got broken. Glad I wasn't the one trying to maneuver that thing off the wall.
I also bought this little footstool that will eventually make it up to my bedroom as well.
Those are the "big" purchases. I also came home with a few other goodies:
Another night light to add to my "collection" ~ I have such a "thing" for night lights....
a couple of cute bags to hand from my new rack:
an antique towel holder and a towel to go on it:
and finally, this cute little pin cushion, scissors holder that hangs around your neck! How cute is that? I can see making some of these with stitched pieces to give as gifts!
Here's a shot of the rack that Julie bought for her craft room. That's Meghan holding it - I thought she looked like an angel with big wings - a faceless angel, yes, but an angel.
Finally, here's a pic of Matt headed off to Spring Break. He's excited - I'm panic stricken. I don't know how I'm going to sleep for the next week - I may need some "mother's little helpers"....
So, while not much (any) stitching or floor painting got done, I had one heck of a Good Friday! I met a new friend, hung out with a best friend and her sweet daughter and spent money (that part I love, Rob - not so much)!
Thanks so much to all of you who leave a comment ~ I so appreciate it. I hope you all have a wonderful Easter full of blessings!
