Goodness...

...has it really been over a week since I blogged! I have to say, this week was a bit of a train wreck. We had a lovely time at our cottage but really hit the ground running on our first day back to work (Tuesday). Then hubby came down with the flu - poor guy is still feeling under the weather. Fortunately I have had BOTH my shots and don't seem to have caught it (keeping my fingers crossed). Meanwhile, can you believe I FORGOT to put the memory card back into my camera before we left - so NO cottage photos (sniff)...and there were a couple of memorable shots I would have loved to have. Oh well. But I did manage to get some thrifting in (much to hubby's dismay - he really is not a big fan) and picked up some odds and ends.

An addition to my very small collection of wedding cake toppers - they sit on a shelf with old wedding photos.


Some fun transfers - I think this is a pretty early Walker's one.

Old Knitting patterns - very BritishCouple of cute clothes patterns

Lovely crochet


Old Craft magazines and leaflets - I've been finding "old" things are the "new" things these days


Two Christmas Books (thrifted at different shops a week apart - it was meant to be!)

There were, I consider, two scores. The first was 35 hankies (just a sample here) for $6.00 CDN (that's $5.70 US).

There were some real pretty ones, including my first round hankie. They all need a good cleaning though...
But I thought this was the best...

...when I looked through some old books I brought back I found a lovely Christmas book mark dated 1940 on the back ...sigh, with everything that passed this week I feel like our vacation was months ago....

  1. Sounds like you had a great time, Julie. I love the hankies. I still hand my kids one when they get a cold to tuck in their sleeve. Just kind of reminds me of my mom and grandma. A Kleenex just doesn't do the job. Leslie

  2. So nice to find a post again from you - figured you were busy as a little bee. Glad you got to do some really good thrifting (you found some really good stuff!). Love the hankies! I had a few but gave them to Molly after she, Sherry and I were in an antique store one day. Of the three granddaughters, I think Molly is the one who loves the old stuff like I do. Hope your hubby is feeling better! See you Tuesday and I will bring along those extra blocks. Carol
