Jane and I did Antique Row in a little town near here yesterday. Great stuff we found - and also a lot of junk. There was one shop that was SO messy. We were laughing last night talking about it. I'm not joking here -- she had yellow crime scene tape across some areas that were too messy to even walk in! I am hestitating about buying any antique furniture right now because I'm just renting. But if I still had my house, there are a couple of pieces that I would have snapped up!
I found an old secretary yesterday just like my dear aunt had. I always told myself that if I ever found one, I'd get it. Well, I backed off from it yesterday, but I can tell you, it made my heart sing to see it. At least I know they are still around. Maybe next year! :)
I did buy this thread holder. It fits in perfectly with the collections I have. I don't think it's very old, but that's not important. I photoed it laying flat on the floor, but it's going to be hung on the wall. Cute, cute!
Last evening a quilter friend of ours had a birthday gathering for Jane. We had a delightful sit down dinner, and lots of good talk. A really diverse group of women, and I enjoyed every minute of it.
