These are the second pair of sandals I wanted and they were still at the Thift Shop amazingly enough. $2.00 and like the pink pair little to no wear!
A crocheted baby blanket, $1.00! I am going to wash it up and then will have a nice little throw to cover my feet and legs when I sit on the sofa reading.
I saw these nice autumn colored cloth place mats. Four of them were $2.00! I am going to wash them up too.
One lonely skein of yarn, love the color and I am sure I can find something delightful to make up with this one ball of yarn. You can see the price.
These were cute little Christmas salad plates and there were 3 of them, 50¢ each and I thought they would make good little gifts with homemade fudge or Russian teacakes on them.
These are a few things that came home with the Professor and I from my Mother's house. A pretty mirror that sat on my Grandma Russell's dresser for years. It now is on my sofa table under my Lenox vase of flowers and the pretty frame with a wedding picture of the Caribbean Prince and I. The ceramic candle sticks were also my Grandma Russell's. The little bible was presented to my Grandmother Roberts from her Elementary School, don't see that happening today do ya? The heart pin was also Grandmother Roberts too!
Here is a chicken scratched apron my Grandmother Roberts made. I want to wash this up and then find a way to present it...any ideas?
Still packaged like the day she received them in 1970 when we mailed them to Grandmother Roberts when we moved to Hawaii, an apron and a oven mitt, she never used them. I would love to open them and use them, do you think I should? The crocheted ears of corn, Grandmother Roberts made them and had them hanging above her stove. I think they are darling!
And this is the only thing that I wanted of my Grandmother Roberts. It is a cast iron, iron. When I was a toddler and we went to visit my Grandparents, my Grandmother set me on the floor with newspapers and this iron. Mom says it was very amusing to watch me try to iron the papers with an iron that weighted almost as much as I did. I think this may have been my Great Grandmother Stovall-Timmerwilke's. It would be interesting to see if anyone can give me an idea of when this style of iron was used.
I need to get decent because I need to take the Professor to work. I am enjoying my treasures that I shared with all of you. I am awaiting the delivery of my Grandmother Roberts's cedar chest and dresser. I think I will get those next weekend. Have a blessed week my beloved readers!
