Sunny but chilly day...

Kitty Autumn just waking up in an Easter basket, not quite the Easter bunny, lol
quilt my mom passed down to me that was my grandmother's, it's close to 100 yrs old!
auction win...big enamelware pot
goodwill finds, will have to decide what I do with the bamboo wicker shaker box
spring colored wood bowls...can't have to many bowls :)
ebay cupboard hanger dress with bonnet and grunged booties, antique sock stretchers, beautiful blue bonnet from Lecia that I received out of the blue after Christmas... (I love her bonnets!)

Good afternoon everyone! The sun was shining brightly today, but it did not take away the chill... it has been very windy the past few days, Saturday it ripped the cover right off our portable shed, the winds were at least 90 km and hour and I thought the house was going to blow away! Ontop of that, my daughter Brynn was sick with a fever and chills and very weak. Today she was better but I kept her home to be sure. Tomorrow is my day where all the kids are in school, hopefully the weather will be nicer and I can get out, perhaps goodwill shopping again! You just never know what you are going to find and there are a few stores I haven't been into lately, so I am due a visit :)

Well, dinner is ready so I'd better go and feed the clan, apparently they are starving, lol.....baked chicken with mayonaise and romano cheese and baked potaoes with sour cream and a few veggies. Have a wonderful night everyone and stay warm!!!!

hugs, Trish

  3. Oh the winds have been horid here too. Ripping out trees and things. We can't even go outside. The kids are getting restless. We've had a couple of really nice days just to tease us and then the wind and snow again. Dinner sounds delish. Kitty is so cute haning out in the basket. I love the bonnets you have. I just picked up some fabric yesterday to make another of my own. Hope you get out to GW. -Steph-
