I also went to a few yard sales this weekend (Oh, probably 15 or 20! A huge community's annual sale.) I got a few fun things. 2 flower frogs and 4 milk glass cold cream jars all for .50 each!
Then I went to my favorite antique store and TOTALLY splurged! I bought myself a Mother's Day present. A couple weeks ago, I was there with Tiffany (shabbyscraps) and I found a roll of wallpaper. Gorgeous wallpaper. Old. Muted. Cream background, small pink roses, silver scrolley things. Gorgeous! It haunted me. It was one of those things where I really wanted it, but had no more money. So, I waited, and thought about it, craved it. I went back and, Hallelujah!, it was still there. I love it! When I get my Etsy site up (soon, I hope, barring more illness and pestilence) I'll put some up for sale. Just as soon as I got home, however, I made a Mother's Day card and a Thank You card with it...it's lovely. Really.
The "She is a Mother " card is for Cassie, My oldest daughter. I can't believe I'm the mother of a mother! The thank you card is for my sweet friend Cassandra, who gave me a red dogwood tree today! She has a tiny backyard and realized after she bought it it was going to be way too big. She stuck it in a pot last year to enjoy it a little and, this year she gave it to me. WAHOO! I adore dogwoods. And, as a bonus, this one has a purple clematis that climbs up it! I love clematis, too!! I'll post pics of those beauties soon.
I hope you all had a wonderful mother's day!
