today is a very special day here in the U.S., it's a day to remember all americans who lost their lives in active military service.
although memorial day is a federal holiday, some people still had work that had to be gone to (me), and this weekend went by much too fast! but the flea market was in town. sometimes treasure hunting is just the thing :) would you like to see what i found?
a hand made hand embroidered dress! it needs hemming and a good wash, but it fits
and it has pockets!
i found a book of little lambs, and little sheep too
for our nest when nights are cool
can you spare a little wool?
i found a vintage pair of binoculars, with a good lens, functional leather strap and carrying case!
a friend had an antique sale this weekend also, where she had small vignettes of items arranged outside
a peek inside her storybook home
i cast on for a(nother) shawl. soon after this photo was taken, the yarn became
hopelessly tangled (all my fault) and the entire rest of the day was spent undoing. back on track today,
i have plans to never make a mess like that again. ;)
the winner of the bird needle gauge is karin -ida!
thank you for such kind words, i wish i could send one to each of you!
the gauges are available for purchase only here in carpinteria. if you cannot make a trip to california ;)
one can happily be shipped to you!
my lovely (talented) friend roxanne drew the design of the pretty bird, then commissioned
them to be made for her shop.
measuring approximately three inches long, and priced at $4.95 each (plus tax and shipping)
