Musical Chairs and Then Some Nov.15 & 16







Friday started off great, I decided not much going on. So why not sleep in. (Does not happen much around here.) Slept in and then started on some household errands . In the afternoon I had to go up to West Chester and get that dreaded Mammogram, however I decided to stop at the Salvation Army. I Hadley ever really find any thing good there. But Friday turned out to be, my habit was going to be fed. A punch bowl, 8 little cocktail glasses, and a really cute baby lamb planter pot. SCORE.

Saturday very cold , there was only one sale going on in the West Chester, Exton area so I decided to head out. I was hoping everyone else stayed at home. No such luck, but I did come across two really nice saloon chairs. The lady I bought them from said she had bought them in Arizona at a antique store. The one was in desperate need of glue. From that sale I stumbled on another one and found a really cute soup tureen. On my way home I stopped by the Quaker Harvest in Kennett Sq. Grandmas attic had a few things. I picked up a Pyrex bowl in the Blue Amish pattern, A pin cushion,and a cute little tin. Then home again. So i figure a few more sales, a few more chairs, and we can all get together and play musical chairs!

I couldn't wait to see your blog and your finds since we didn't go sailing this weekend. The chairs are great. They must have been a great buy. So what is the soup du jour on Thursday? From scratch, no doubt.

Isn't it funny how we can decide to "stay in" and somehow end up finding neat things? Those chairs are great!

I've been away from blogging for a while, so I'm just trying to catch up. Your daughter is gorgeous!! Sorry to hear someone stole stuff from YOUR pile. I can't stand that kind of stuff!!!! I'm loving that tureen (sp.) and the awesome bird cage below.

Oh I knew there was something else I wanted to tell you. The puppy will outgrew the bad behavior - I promise!! Have faith and stay strong!! And...remember that as much as you love your carpet, bras and your new shoes, they don't love you. They don't anxiously await your return home every day and their tails don't wag at the very sight of you. They can all live without you. But sweet puppy cannot!!! Hang in there, Dona!
