Spring!

Today was a day to shop yard sales and to garden. Here in the deep south, no one has a clue what a "Tag Sale" is ...selling tags? No, selling items with tags on them, a.k.a. yard sale.

We met lots of nice folks and found some cool things...



This was a 50's (?) tablecloth for $4.00; so cool.

How about this $1.00 vintage quilt. It's not in perfect condition, but it's lovely and has a very simple and interesting pattern. I cut off the parts that aren't perfect and add a new binding.

I haven't found any particular style for our master bathroom that interests me, but this $1.00 piece of art decided it for me...simple Asian style; very zen-like.


And, oooooh, I love getting Chico's clothing for $8.00. This brown denim jacket with matching slacks and red floral embroidery is wonderful. Click on the image to see the great buttons.

The Band...Bill likes to create yard art; this is called The Band with the red headed step child.

I planted the tomato plants, oregano, sage and mint for tea.

It's 8:20 pm and the sky just got dark in the last 10 minutes. We're at the far western end of the US eastern time zone, so even in early April we have bright skies until 8:00pm.
