And speaking of color, I mentioned that I had bought a couple items at thrift shops the weekend that I went to Bonny's Quilt Haven. When I saw these little goodies, I thought......"hmmm, how nice these would look when our deck is finished and we eat our first meal out there." I spotted that colorful chicken egg holder at one shop and thought it was $2.00 but discovered when I got to the register that all kitchen items were half-price. What a deal! It is hand-painted and was made in Portugal. And then at the next thrift shop..........
I found the blue floral basket and it was marked $3.75 and guess what?.......it was also "handmade in Portugal"! Now I'm thinking somebody must have done some traveling and lucky me.........I got their souveniers! I also got some tiny teacups that are just adorable and they will pop up in a future post. :-)
The weather was beautiful this past weekend. Temperatures are to climb today and maybe later on there will be a nice rain shower. I hope so. I love sunshine but I dearly love the sound of rain and so I need it, and so does the grass. And if there was a little rain during the sunshine today, then maybe there would be another shower tomorrow! Here's hoping!
Have a great Monday!
