Why, You Ask?

And I answer, "Just because."

Jane and I went antiqueing again, as you can probably tell. I found two textile bobbins, we each found a darner, and I also found a neat metal hammered heart. But the ultimate find was the milking stool! ROFLOL. I have no idea where it'll go, but it will be somewhere in the living room. I think it will make a great conversation piece, don't you?

We had such a good time today. We stopped by a quilt shop, and then headed over to this huge antique store. They chased us out of there at closing time before we could even explore the whole place. We're already planning to go back maybe next weekend! I think there are a couple of big wooden hand-hewn bowls which might follow me home next time. Oh, and we had to stop at Bert & Rocky's ice cream joint on the way home! It's a good thing we didn't have a certain someone's address - or we would have crashed her slumber/sewing party!

This teeny cut on my finger is awfully sore. It's right up against my nail. I must have cut into a vein judging by the way it bled. My lip is still hurting a bit, but the ice cream helped that a lot!

I started cutting out Peach Cobbler quilt kit from the Fat Quarter Shop before Jane got here. It's going to sew together really fast. The fabric is yummy, just like peach cobbler. That reminds me - I need to eat some real food tonight. Guess I need to go through some drive-thru or other where they won't understand a word that comes out of this Cajun mouth!


~ The joy of spending the day with a good friend!
~ Laughing a lot at things we saw today!
~ Seeing more old sewing buddies at that quilt shop.
~ Wonderful candles
~ Absolutely gorgeous fall weather!

Glad to read your finger did not stop you from having a great day.

Love your antique finds. The milking stool is very cool. I have a few old spools and wooden darners. I am still looking for a spinning wheel.

The real conversation piece is when you bring the cow into the living room to milk! Hey, I have a certain someone's address if you and Jane want to head on over there tomorrow--just make sure you bring cameras and share photos! LOL!

The milking stool is very neat. I was about to suggest getting a cow but Kim beat me to it.

Sounds like a wonderful day. I like the milking stool. It will make a good conversation starter. Ice cream always make everything better, doesn't it?

Interesting finds! Never know when one might need a good milking stool! :)

You probably should've had stitches in the finger.

I'm so glad you and Jane had a fun day together.

Owie -- hope your finger is improving!

The stool is great. My whole house is full of **interesting** things :)

Beautiful weather!

Hugs ~ Jeanne

Hey! I just realized! You have the stool already, and once you get that mini cow, you can MAKE YOUR OWN ICE CREAM! LMAO!

Oh so there's the milking stool. I didn't finish reading all your posts while I was out getting a headache. LOL You really shouldn't get Kim going on the whole cow thing. I'm warning you.
Now that would have been funny if you, Jane AND your milking stool came to the door. And by the way, I love it!!
