Hiya Blogland! Yesterday was the 149th anniversary of the Battle of Antietam/Sharpsburg. I live right in town--in fact, all the houses around me were here during the battle. The lot where our house now stands was the neighbors garden. Confederate troops camped here during the battle.
Cute picture of Ms. KaeKae napping in the sunshine on a pile of wool I'm recycling.
Unfortunately, we got some surprise rain which cut short my attendance. Plus I over-estimated how much I could walk with the cast on my knee. I'm paying the price but oh well...
Oh, yeah. There are no pictures because I forgot to charge the camera's extra battery and the one in the camera was dead as a doornail. DUH!!!!
The hubster and I went down to the firehouse for the pancake breakfast.( He went back later in the day to pick up their bar-b-cued chicken platters for dinner) We then walked around a bit. There were lots of yard sales in town and the main street was set up for craft vendors and such.
I got to spend some time in a member of our rug guild's booth. Here's a shout-out to Caroline of Eagle's Nest Woolen's! http://www.eaglesnestwoolens.blogspot.com/ Her booth was wonderful and I of course had to buy some wool for hooking! Her charming hubster Ron-who is also a rug hooker, and another guild member Mary were also there.
The yard sales were kinda dismal for me--I'm not into tupperware or kids stuff. My backyard neighbor's friends were holding a yard sale in their yard and I was able to snatch up some goodies CHEAP--like $3 for all!
Gorgeous plates-a Royal Dalton, Homer Mclaughlin, and Edwin Knowles. These are destined as wall art in the bedroom.
Here's a close-up of the sweet cottage on the Edwin Knowles platter.
A feather tree!!! That's my work area in the craft palace. The table top is neat for a moment.
A flat feather tree. Gotta redo the can holding it--it says CAT. Nothing a little spray paint and a vintage label can't improve.
Here's the ornaments that were on the trees. some are vintage and some not. LOVE the green glass garland!
Close-up of one of the ornaments which turned out to be a pin. I'm going to adapt this idea into pins or ornaments.
My next door neighbors are a darling elderly couple. Miss Alice is 90 years young. She does ceramics as a hobby (she once owned a ceramics shop) She was selling some of her work yesterday and I had to buy some.
Sweet children and snowman for our daughter.
Gorgeous Santa for my collection.
Well, off to take some drugs...I think I caught a bit of a cold yesterday and I want to KNOCK it out now!
I hope everyone had a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by!
