Crazy Ohio Weather ~



I'm not complaining.  I'll take it.  Our weather has been beautiful.  I mowed the lawn today.  Not that it needed it, but it is much easier than raking :)  Being only two blocks from Lake Erie is advantageous in the fall as we get a frost/freeze later than inland.  I still have a few flowers blooming.  Friday they are predicting a high of 70* with sunshine ~ and a possibility of snow on Sunday.  Welcome to Ohio.

 
Here are my goodies purchased at From Our Hands and Hearts.
 
This sweet little chair was one of a pair.  Friend Melissa purchased the other one.  Also got that wonderful stack of blue homespun and a couple linen towels.
 
 
This nubby linen (?) towel measure 24" x 30 1/2".  I have no idea what I will do with it (I really don't have a place in the kitchen to hang it) but my younger son is Jason Thomas so I could not resist.
 
 
I was so excited to find some featheredge.  It's not often I add to my collection.  From a child's play set the plate measures only 4 1/2" in diameter.  It is in excellent condition with just a couple tiny flea bites.  The little platter measures 8 1/2" wide.  It has lots of flea bites and small chips, but I've never come across a child's platter before.  The next day dealer Donna (Antiques on the Ridge in North Ridgeville, OH) brought the tureen and of course could not leave it behind.  
 
 
I now have an official collection of pinkeeps (3) from Lanna Omlor, Humble Rugs.  She is the talented sister of Lori Ann Corelis.
 
 
I also got a punch needle pattern and floss keeper from Lori Brechlin and some beautifully dyed velveteen from Stacy Nash.  All in all I'd say I got some wonderful goodes :)
 
Bobbie gifted me with this wonderful box from Lisa Evans, Folk for All Seasons.  What a perfect retirement gift!  I will put it to good use.
 
 
Grandson Jake had his first sixth grade orchestra concert this evening.  He is playing the cello.  What fun!  I know nothing about music and never played an instrument so am so happy he has the opportunity to learn.
 
 
 
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
Lauren

Good morning, Lauren! What wonderful finds! If I found a towel with my initials or a loved one's, I wouldn't have left it behind, either. LOL

Your grandson is a cutie and I love his hair!! I have always been fond of spiked hair. Looks so rock star. LOL

What wonderful treasures you found - I love the child sized dishes - I'm not at all familiar with them! And your hook box is awesome. I found one or two blog posts from the gal at Humble Rugs - wish she had more!
