well, it has been a nice week....not having to get up at any particular time, having plenty of studio time, doing as i pleased and enjoying this 77 degree weather! who could ask for anything more. wonderful lunches out with old friends and lazy evenings with my hubby....wow...is this what retirement could be like?????? i started out this morning to find some Friday estate sales that i had looked up in the paper last night.....well, i have obviously lost track of time because upon arrival at the first, i was immediately greeted, or NON greeted, by a husky man sticking his head out the door yelling, "the sale isn't until tomorrow lady". i slumped back into my car realizing that today was not 4/1/06......but 3/31....oh well, that will not dampen my spirits i thought! from there on it was a festive day. i started at a few antique stores in the nearby neighborhood, then off to a large antique mall. a friend is having a BIRTHDAY soon and i had wanted to get her a pin or two....you know the enameled ones that are so popular now! well, everywhere i looked i found darling inexpensive enameled pins......not being able to choose...i purchased several. then, off to the second hand store...you know that kind where they only handle designer used clothes etc... that always astounds me that people selling someone elses clothes can have an attitude...but some do! NOT TODAY THOUGH! first thing i spied was a case of marked down jewelry and there before my eyes lay more wonderful enameled pins....couldn't pass them up....too cute! so if you have already guessed that they are for you....angelica....you are right! i can't keep a secret either and can't wait to get them in the mail to you......so HAPPY BIRTHDAY GIRL!
These are some of my finds for the day....can't wait to get started!
