No R&R is Complete Without a Little Junking!
I had last Thursday and Friday off so we headed over to the Oregon coast for some R&R. This is the view from our room in Lincoln City. We aren't much for beach walking since it is usually pretty windy and chilly but we sure enjoy the wave watching. Oh yes, and the sound of the surf through the open window.
I was determined to not bring home a bunch of Etsy-bound work for myself so was only shopping for things for myself. I was specifically looking for another vintage flower print to fill in a blank spot I created in my bedroom, postcards for my collection and buttons are ALWAYS on my list.
I held out just fine until we made a stop at Goodwill on the way out of town. Well, I couldn't pass up two big poke sacks. I could see there was lots of old lace trim and a few doilies. Those braid pieces at the bottom of the picture are zippers. I have never seen any like them and sure didn't buy them on purpose but hopefully someone will want them.
That jar in the middle contains buttons. I could tell that most would be "keepers" so it didn't break my rule. 8+) Oh wait, there are no rules with buttons.
I took this photo of the keepers while we were still at the motel. No, I couldn't wait to open it until I got home.
I also picked up the sweet crochet pincushion for myself. I have bought and sold a few over the years and have kind of been regretting letting them go. I love the colors on this one so it will be staying with me.
This is a Spring garden update. The Husband has been growing dahlias in this bed next to the garage/shop for years. He was tired of taking care of them and wanted something different. Out with the dahlias and in with the grapes! There are two different varieties of table grapes. They clearly have some growing to do but I think they will look pretty, plus cover up my faded away "faux" flower garden.
