The Acquisition of More Things

Yes, I am guilty of buying more stuff. I've been thinking about working towards less stuff, but today was not the day. The Motherina & I hit our favorite scrapbooking store, and then headed down the road for some quick antiquing. There I found the lovelies pictured here.

Naturally, I had to have the needle card since:

a) it has dark-haired girls on it.
b) it is old.
c) it was made not in Taiwan or China or Myanmar, but JAPAN, which would make it actually
rather old, instead of just old-looking.

And the lace was pretty as well. Please don't ask what I'm going to do with it - I don't have a clue. ;)

At another (evil & chain) store, I also picked up some vintage-looking cowkid fabric that I've been eyeing for a while, since it was FINALLY on sale. I see some cute kiddie decorations in my near future, for some of the many kiddies that my friends keep having. I love being a pseudo-aunt! Make 'em cute stuff, take their cute little pictures, play with 'em, and send 'em home just as they get cranky. It's a great life, I tell you!

Blankets and sheets are on the line, ready to be packed up till next winter. Now if I could just get the rest of the house in order & ready to be packed!

Okay, how many people like margaritas and real antiques. Wait, I'm going to my 30th class reunion---does this mean I'm an antique?

Also, I must say Friday night was a blessing to me as well. I needed time to unwind!
