Sunday Morning Shopping

Look what we found in the barn. Aren't they cute - big balls of fluff. They are now living in a pet crate in the garage, but I'm hoping to find them loving parents soon.




Remember the quilt I posted about recently that I saw at the antique show held at the fairgrounds? The show is held a few times a year (always on Sunday). Hubby and I went this morning. Look at the beauty that was folded up on a wooden ironing board! The vendor graciously allowed me to snap a few pictures, but I couldn't get a shot of the whole quilt. The pink is deteriorating and there are visible stains, but a choice piece. Sadly, it didn't come home with me, but I did snag embroidered/hand-crochet edged sheets ($5/ea) and pillowcases ($4/ea). It's sad that such time intensive handwork is valued so cheaply.

That is a lovely quilt! How much was the vendor asking for it?
It sounds like you got a steal on the sheets and pillowcases. I love to find a good bargain!

$395. It was purchased on Ebay and came from PA.

Those quilts are all lovely, but those baby kitties are just too cute. I hope you find them good homes.
