That's what the weather forecasters around here call it when the cool evening temps. finally arrive. This is a new-with-tags, thrifted Ralph Lauren duvet. Perfect for the guest bedroom, better known as the dog's napping bed. In a few weeks it will be filled with a down comforter and ready for one of our winters.
Also from the thrift shop. I've never seen striped bias trim before.
Just the trim. I had the milk glass stuff.
Estate sale hanky. I liked the edging...
Vintage gold rick rack. I love it. I found silver on Saturday.
Simple window "treatment" for an opaque window that just needed something. Monogrammed guest towels. I bought a dozen at an estate sale for a song. Now for a few photos from a yard sale we just happened to be driving by. Total cost $2.00.
Here's a bit of a closer look at a few of the things...
I am hoping for a peek at the October British Country Living soon. What a beautiful magazine. We had breakfast out and a nice walk in the park today. It's 78 and sunny and the Bills have just won their first game since the football season started. There's really no better place to be than right here, right now. Last weekend, as I was waiting for an estate sale to start, I spoke with a man I see frequently. We were talking about estate sales and how we feel about going into people's homes. He said that every time he goes to a sale, he is reminded that we Americans are so lucky. Not only do so many of us have enough, we have so much that we have to store the extra possessions in attics, cellars and garages. I suspect that those of you reading this in the UK, Australia and Denmark feel the same. We are all so lucky...Thanks for visiting Hollyhocks.
