The Day After the Sale

This morning is a delightfully crisp 39 degrees and the sun is shining with promise of a lovely spring day ahead. Mr Robin has driven off all the other male robin contenders for possession of my garden and (I am told) is waiting for the arrival of the ladies from parts south. I am not sure how desirable his territory is, but he took a bath with much vigorous splashing; hopefully some nice girl will choose him to raise a Click image to enlarge gap ffamily this family this year.

Lori and I went to another sale yesterday. On the way there we assured each other that if we didn't see anything enticing we would come home. As we were hauling an enormous horse trailer I am not sure we believed ourselves.

Yes, I am going to clean it, just not today, I'm tired!We arrived in the nick of time, I was able to inspect, bid on and win a vintage hand quilted elongated nine-patch, sewn in the 30's or 40's for a very reasonable price. A badly faded and patched hand quilted wholecloth quilt, probably with wool batting was in the same lot. I was going to give it to Boysie but Lori was in love with it so I gave it to her instead.

Lots of other treasures came home with me including this sweet bright red wooden caddy, two antique office chairs, a 60's Mid-Century Modern Eames style chair for the porch, some vintage pyrex, china, glassware, pots and pans plus loads of vintage table cloths.

Y'all come back!
