Thrift Finds And Good Times

Earlier this month, I went over to visit my sisters, and had such a wonderful and memorable time!
I had the distinct pleasure of seeing and spending time with some VERY dear old friends (you know who you are!). I gave one of them this framed antique postcard - because we truly do share many Happy Memories!
I got to go out to dinner two nights in a row (one for a retirement party), and the third night was for a fabulous home-cooked meal to celebrate family birthdays. My sister and her husband fixed us all such wonderful meal! Yum. And, as if all of that wasn't enough (and it really should be!) I got to go thrift shopping, too! Found some great books - I have always wanted a copy of The Country Diary Of An Edwardian Lady:
Found some lovely rose chintz with a dark green background. The buckles are new- and plastic - but I like them!
And some pretty light blue fabric with flocked "butterfly bouquets" on it, pink floral postcards, and Little Bo Peep! Adorable:
Flower Power - and I am LOVING these metal mug trees lately!

Like I said, it was a great weekend!
