Fourth Monday Of The Week

 It has been crazy-busy around here since vacation ended and I have been back to the office so I'm just now getting around to posting the last of the vacation junk. A nice little pile of loot from my weekly Sunday pilgrimage to the VOA.  A poke sack of sewing notions, a little forest of bottle brush trees and a wee bench that will be a perfect photo prop after it gets a make-over.  I don't know why these words won't justify left and I'm too tired to figure it out so just going with it.  Sometimes it's okay for things to not be perfect!
A little herd of Wades for the Grand's collection.
 My very favorite find was this lux fleece blanket.  It is a double layer with an even thicker, solid maroon fleece on the other side and so, so cozy feeling. I couldn't find a single thing wrong with it so someone else was tired of it and it made my day.  Don't you love when things like that happen!
As quick as it was cleaned up I placed it on the bed in the spare bedroom.  The colors are perfect and I think my little Grand will feel like a princess snuggled up in this!

Wow! What great finds Kathy! That blanket is perfect; those Wades look like the ceramics we used to find in Red Rose Tea... too bad they no longer do that. Have a wonderful weekend - hope you can rest!

I love your vacation junk especially that cozy blanket. The colors are so pretty and it's going to be perfect for those cold winter nights.

One of the problems with a relaxing vacation is playing catch up on the return! Love your bottle brush forest.

I can't wait to see what you do with those little Christmas trees.

I think I need to go thrifting with other accomplished thrifters because I don't seem to find anything at our shops.

Sometimes it's something as simple as a snuggly soft blanket that makes one soooo happy. The nights and mornings are cooling off here and it is feeling a bit like fall. I bet it is where you are too and that blanket will be a welcome find. Cute little Christmas trees too.
