Sunny Sunday out touring should be quilting

Once again it is a sunny Sunday, We took the meteor this time out with us. We started with a flea market in the town of Lakefield. I love vintage linen hand towels, so I purchased 6 for $5.00, then at another table I found these cute chicks, I had to have them. They were listed at 2 for $10.00, so I left them till the end so I could barter. I got them for $5.00 for the pair. they look so cute with my egg basket. Then I found the cutest watering can. It had been decopage with fish, fishing bugs etc. They wanted $5.00 and I bartered for $3.00. Sold.. On to the next flea market , our favorite. I bought a black windsor chair for $20.00 , what a steel, a pyrex yellow 2 1/2 qt bowl to add to my collection for $3.00. I had Wil stop at Zellars so I could purchase a pyrex pie 9 1/2 " with handles. I had seen it advertised on Aunt Ruthies sight. Sugarpie farmhouse. If you haven't visited there yet its a treat.
So here I am at home with the towels in the sink and I'm using a soap called Linda. Its great for stains. Who'd thought that I had a soap for laundry!! Here are the hand towels starched and pressed and hanging in my washroom.Well you see my string quilt on the frame waiting to be quilted. One small detail, I need to get backing . Well off to the basement I want to build a bird house, after my house. And by the way our house is up for sale. The sign went on the front lawn Friday. So house hunting we go.............


  1. What a bunch of great finds for you today....hope you have good luck selling your house!

  2. I don't know much about old cars and I've never heard of a meteor but that sure is a beautiful car! My husband has an old 53 Chevy stored in the garage so I do have an appreciation for those well-kept old beauties.
