Hi Folks ~ While most of you are starting to feel a drop in the temperature and enjoying lovely fall weather, it is hot and humid here. Someone said record breaking temps for this time of year, mid 80’s feeling like high 80’s to low 90’s. We need rain, what I don’t hand water or is not under the sprinkler, is parched, brown and dry. Rain keeps being predicted, but goes all around us.
It’s hard to believe the holidays are almost here. This past Tues. my little group of ladies from Bons Amis ~ Good Friends, had our Thanksgiving potluck luncheon/meeting. There were 13 of us and it was fun and good food had by all.
Next month we are having a Christmas tea. We will dress up and bring our own tea cup and saucers and teas and will bring finger foods.
Yesterday I gathered collectibles up from around the house and the storage building out back. Cleaned them up, started pricing items. Today I set up with other people for an indoor flea market happening tomorrow and Sunday. I was out of my comfort zone as I did not know anyone there, so just had to wing it, say hello and be friendly. I had a sale from one of the dealers, which paid my entry fee, then I turned around and spent half of it.
I spied these ‘FlowerLady’ sheets laying on a table. Had to wait for the lady to come back to find out the size and price. I did think they looked like a full size and they were. I got a fitted, top and two pillow cases for $10. Waverly, 100% Cotton, 200 thread count. I checked them out online when I got home and the pattern is Fontanelle floral. I found a pair of king pillow cases in this pattern that went for $39.99 on Ebay. I am pleased with these. Have been wanting floral sheets and just haven’t come across any until now. This was my kind of price that is for sure. I washed them and they are hanging out on the lines now. They look almost new so I am a happy camper. I loved the pintuck trim too.
Then I found three vintage pieces of needlework to use in some creations of mine.
Aren’t they pretty. The hours that went into making the edgings in the top and bottom photos is mind boggling.
The middle one I’m keeping for myself because of the heart edging.
I love finding treasures. I’m sure I’ll see some and maybe buy some more tomorrow before the show opens. I’ll have to take a photo of my set-up. Since this is a flea market, I’m not sure how collectibles will sell for the prices I’m asking. But, people can always get a better price if they are nice.
I’m getting hungry, so it’s about time to fix some supper.
Here are some flowers to close this post out.
Here are a couple photos of Miss Rosie. She follows me everywhere, leaping here and there on leaves, etc. Running to and fro. She has a sweet little meow and she smells sweet too. You can faintly see her tabby stripes in her tail and on her legs.
I am thankful to God for His many blessings in my life.
Have a great weekend ~ FlowerLady
