Good sunny Friday afternoon!
No work today. I'm back on my three day schedule at the pharmacy. I LOVE that!
Being 61 years old, and my husband being semi-retired..... having a part-time job is so nice.
I started babysitting full-time at age 13, and have worked most of my life.
It's nice to have "this time" in my life when I don't have to work a 40 hour work week, and can finally enjoy weekends with my family.
I still like having a job for "spending money", and being able to get out of the house a couple of days a week...and am blessed to have that where I work.
I don't know what I would do without the girls I work with.
They are so good to me.
On this sunny day, I was putting together this corner of the dining room that always seems to give me fits.
I recently bought this vintage iron crib from my friend that owned the shop where my booth was located.
I've wanted to use it as a love seat, IF Sandy were ever to sell the piece.
The pretty quilt and pillows that Kim made for me..... using vintage linens, lace, and doilies look wonderful on the crib.
I just bought the middle pillow that she made for her booth. I keep checking for more each time I visit.
I just can't seem to get enough vintage linen, and antique lace!
There are several pieces neatly folded, and stacked in my old farm cupboards.
But...why have them if you are going to keep them packed away?
I love to see vintage pieces draped everywhere!
Just think of the time, and talent each piece represents.
There is so much detail, and love that went into these treasures.
Using scraps for sachets is a great way to pass on the love.......
I suppose I should get back to working on that corner of the dining room that gives me trouble.
I hope you have sunshine headed your way this weekend.
