Since I had the afternoon available I called my guy and he invited me to join him for lunch as he works nearby. I was actually headed to a couple antique shops in the area when I was talking to him, but decided to meet him at Chevy's for some lunch. Two lunch dates in two days is definitely a record for us.
After lunch I headed home, but of course I stopped at Goodwill on the way. I did actually find a few good things. Here are my purchases for that day.
I got the ceramic hand (will use to display bracelets and necklaces at shows), the pink and white dish towel and a flea market finds book(not pictured) at Le Stuff antique mall in Hillsboro. I usually buy pink dish towels whenever I find them as it is really hard to find pink dish towels new and I love the vintage linen ones like this one is. The girls crinoline slip, divided drawer and cowboy boots came from Goodwill. I found a couple white tops there too (also not pictured.)
Today I am going over to the high school with my friend Debbie for a tour of the new kitchen and to visit with my lunch lady buddies. It will be fun to see them again. I know it has been tough getting used to the new space, a few new faces, but knowing them, they are handling it like troopers.
Tomorrow I will be heading over to Joy's again to help her out a bit with her Harvest Open House. See Joy's blog for more details. If you are in the area, I will be there from 10am til noon. I'd love to meet you!
Wow, October is shaping up to be one busy month. No wonder I can't seem to get any projects done. On Saturday we are having friends over to spend the night after we go to the OSU Beavers game in Corvallis. We went to a game last year with the kids and decided it was so much fun we are making it an annual thing. This year we invited friend to join us. The following weekend I'll be heading up to Battleground to see my good buddies J & J. That's Joe and Jermonne in case you didn't already know that. They are having their season finale Barn House Gothic Harvest sale. Can't miss it!
The following weekend I will be helping Isabel get set up for the Portland Expo show. She will be there Friday thru Sunday. I'll only be there on Friday. My sweet MIL will be visiting for my son's 13th birthday that weekend. He will be 13 on the 24th. Ugh! I keep telling him to stop growing up, but like any normal teenager, he just won't listen to me.
