Today I found a few fun things. Some of them are too weird to photograph. Or, so I've been told.
I bought a few dozen old diaper pins. I've NO idea why. My diaper-wearing grandchildren wear disposable diapers. Another purchase was several feet of an aqua silky ribbon. Can't explain it. Also, two luncheon size plates to add to my Yorktown Phaltzgraff collection. Because I had no plates that size. This seemed totally reasonable to me, but caused THGGM to ask why we needed them. NEED? Who said anything about need?
But the Fisher Price Buzzy Bee?!
I bought him because he is just too too cute!
I'll need only to add a string. And a child. Yes. This will be fun!
This is what I did with one of my crochet collars I bought yesterday.
Slipped it over a lamp shade!
Love the look.
I'll need to move it around a bit until I find just the right lamp shade for it. Or, simply wait until I find another collar exactly like it since there is a pair of lamps and I've only one collar just like this.
Today found me slowly meandering through the coldest antique mall on earth. I'm sure of it. Thankfully, while shopping in a winter coat, I'd rather be cold than hot. Although, today the cold was a bit much. BUT! The shopping was good! I found a lot of things for which I was interested in the price. Prices are extremely good at antique malls around here lately. Wish I had money. Still, I was happy to find these cute little leather shoes. Poor girl. You can easily see that she wore them long after she should have had a larger pair. That reminded me of a little girl I once knew. So, since they were half price, I bought them. I did find one other thing. A large yellow Pyrex mixing bowl that matches the other three bowls my mom had. This one looks a bit newer than her set, but knowing me, I'll age it rapidly.
Made a quick stop at my favorite thrift store today. I COULD have gone crazy there, but I tried very hard to be good. All of this music came to $1.05. Just couldn't resist the one called "Notebook for Betty-Sue Bach". It felt good to get out. I hadn't left my house in ten days. Been sick. Not fun.
