I went to lunch with my sister, Robin and my friend, Gypsye to Cafe Strudel. We had an awesome lunch and even split a piece of Red Velvet Cake. Yum. Afterwards Robin and I went into the Old Mill Antique Mall with plans to just look around a bit and chit chat. Well she found a cool belt that looked like a rope of bay leaves and I found a real treasure; well at least to me it was. It was a box full of "linens" for $25 and the booth that it was in was having a 25% off sale so I got it for $20. There were all sorts of Wedding appliqués, crocheted trims and doilies, 2 pillow cases with pansies embroidered on them, a tea towel with tomatoes embroidered on it, tassels, Battenburg lace , beaded trims, ribbon, fabric flowers, a wine bag and a bit of trim with dinosaurs on it. TREASURE!
It's been so cold the past few days; it's currently 39*F here at nearly 9 PM and tomorrow we aren't supposed to get out of the 50's. Brrr... chilly. This is really only the start of our coldest months... January and February are generally when it gets the coldest and when we usually see a bit of ice and/or snow.
The seed catalogs have begun to arrive so I better start planning our garden for this year. I really need to add a layer of compost to all the beds that don't currently have something growing in them so they'll be ready to plant things in a few months.
Well thats about all my news - i'm going to try harder to post what we are up to now that the Christmas madness is nearly behind us.
