The End of June
Does any month pass as quickly as the month of June? You just get your plants in the ground, the roses of Spring are spent and the hydrangeas put on their annual show. Well, the Annabelle are, the Endless Summer are on strike for the second year. I got one or two blooms last year. Not sure what the problem is there. So... it's the end of June, the Independence Day celebrations are next week and then the summer seems to slip away. I am trying to savor every minute.
We did a little thrifting in Wisconsin. I found this blanket, king sized and sent a photo to my daughter...Yes, she was interested.
A seventy dollar blanket for $6.00.
This little throw, 100% wool will look great in my winter display outside the front door. I have some plaid thermos' a sled, skates and skis. Not to rush the season ;-)
Washed and air dried and brushed outside. I still had a reaction and had to change my clothes. I am not a fan of wool but the look of wool is beautiful.
Another wool piece, this needlepoint pillow. It just needed a wash and it is lovely. All the pillows at the Goodwill are $1.99 each. Every once in a while I find one I just must save.
I always appreciate the work involved in something handmade.
The pattern is called English Garden. A beautiful platter perfect for a bundt cake...
So cheerful and perfect for a summer party...
...and if you should come by this summer, don't forget your complementary bunch of lavender.
We had a great time with our girls, Kristen, Penny and Charlotte at the Paper Source Warehouse Sale in downtown Chicago on Saturday. I haven't photographed my loot yet. It was a paper lovers dream. If you are a fan of the Paper Source, it's a fill a shopping bag sort of event. You dig through boxes looking for that thing you once saw in the store but could not afford. I found a few really cool things, but Penny found the most awesome things. It was so nice to be together and have an adventure. Thank goodness my dearest knows his way around the loop, and is good- natured and patient, waiting for his crazy girls.
Thank you for stopping by and for your friendship. Have a great week, and enjoy this beautiful day.
