Little things (and big)
I stepped out of the shower on Saturday morning and immediately heard my mom in the house, frantically calling my name.
"Oh shit." I forgot that we had a date for the antique show. She'd already been waiting a while and I was dripping wet. I quickly got ready while she ran to get coffee and we arrived within the first hour. Early birds and worms and all that... we're usually standing in line waiting for the doors to open.
This adorable pin cushion caught my eye right off the bat. The first booth on the right, just inside the main floor entrance, has been occupied by the same vendor for many years and is one of my favorites. I haven't purchased much, but my "Queen Victoria" sampler was from them a while back. That flower made of felt, all those white pins against the red, the primitive sewing -- I just had to have that sweet little thing to start my day!
I bought a few large buckles, too. I ended up with a couple of small ones, too, only because some of these were acquired in a lot.
I like to thread the ends of my lighter scarves and shawls through the larger buckles to hold them closed, rather than knotting. Sometimes knots are just too big!
I am head-over-heels for the green and ivory buckle. I hope I can remove the metal part without doing any damage.

I'm shouting good news from the rooftops today. My sister had an oncology appointment this morning and continues her chemo vacation!! Not much has changed since last time and what has changed isn't cause for too much concern. That's three in a row, folks! Good news, indeed. Thank you for the continued good thoughts and wishes... keep 'em coming. Thank you!!
