What a beautiful day!!!!

This image was taken in April 2008 but it has been just as beautiful here today. A tad warmer though. Probably 40 degrees warmer to be exact! I have been puttering around getting all sorts of things accomplished too. A lot of house cleaning. Laundry. Cooking. Go on over to The Fairy's Rest blog to see my vintage pillowcase collection. I laundered and ironed them today. They were just lovely hanging on the line while the sunshine whitened them right up!! Boy do they smell good now!!
We spent Saturday at the land getting started on setting the mobile home and hopefully it will be set this Saturday. I worked inside as much as I could while having no electricity or water or A/C. It had to be 95 degrees out there and the boys were working soooooo hard. Good job boys!!! They looked like praire dogs when we left, red clay soil and sweat, get the picture? Dh is bartering some work. He is going to clear some land for a friend in turn for helping with the set up and the septic tank. REALLY GOOD IDEA HUH????? That makes me soooo happy. I could really get into bartering!!! Maybe I could do some bartering with The Fairy's Rest. Maybe I could find someone in Italy who wants to trade a couple weeks here...............well don't laugh. Didn't you see the movie The Holiday!!!! If you haven't seen it you really should. Then you would know what I was talking about!!
Hope you have had a beautiful day in your little corner of the world!!

I went in that shop around the corner too. I got 3/4 of a yard of really cute fabric and a jeans skirt for $1.25. I felt like I ripped them off. If I had got that cloth at Walmart, it would have been on the $3-4 per yard rack. You'll have to post pics when you get your new stuff situated. I'd love to see it. :)

Oh yeah I forgot about that place. I haven't been in there since last fall during craft show weekend. I forget it's even there. There was a lot of pretty furniture in that back building when I went. Wasn't priced too bad either. Yeah, I was talking about the thrift store.;)

Love the pics. That is how I feel when I take my feedsacks down off the line ... they smell so fresh ... they look so pretty blowing in the breeze.

Hi Rebecca,
So nice of you to visit and how cute that we were both pregnant with girls. Happy Birthday to yours.
Hey I like the idea of the Italy swap. I loved that movie. Now I am checking out your other blog
