It's all about flexibility.

The best laid plans never seem to go exactly according to plan sometimes. I had planned to finish up two bears, help get the rest of the moulding down, and get a good start on my holiday decorating. Well, I got a little off track.

Friday, Bill's day fell apart (that means no work for the day) so he called on his way home asking if I wanted to go to an estate sale he'd read about in the paper the night before. Two seconds hesitation.....okay!! And off we went. And off went the rest of the weekends plans.

Oh, but look at the wonderful treasures I found!! A fabulous old red and white quilt, perfect for holiday decorating. A sweet white crochet edge table topper. An old wood drum with the original sticks!! You know one of my old bears will be sitting atop that drum for the holidays!! Let's see.....oh, and an old Horsman doll in exceptional condition. Okay, she's missing her hair and she's not dressed, but I think I may have something she can wear. *wink, wink*

One of my favorite new found treasures is a pair of crystal salt and pepper shakers. Even the screw on tops are glass! There's also the silk embroidered doily with pretty violets. That's another weakness of mine.....old silk embroidery work.

I have to dash off. My girlie is coming over to help me drag out all the Christmas decorations. So I'm a little behind. I'm flexible. I just need a few more cups of coffee to catch up!!

Warmest Sunday bear hugs, Aleta

Hi Aleta,

I wish I had more time to talk with you at Diane's. Your new hairdo is so cute! Thanks for the nice comment regarding our booth at Monticello. I always think it is messy, but we do have lots of goodies there too. BTW, love, love, love your new wide baseboard trim. So cute and vintage looking, but then I love me some vintage anything. ha ha Take care! Hope to run into you again soon! Maybe at Cindy's sale on the 1st?
