We also hit the Antique Mall. Such an amazing place!
I bought the globe on the right to go with the one Mr. P got me for Christmas. It's an oldie - it still has the USSR on it. There was another one I thought about buying. It is the exact same globe I had as a kid (except this one had Kevin Smith's name and phone number written in permanent marker on the bottom). I wonder if my globe is still kicking around my mother's house. Hmmm...
I also bought more buttons (the jar on the right). Remember, I'm the girl who went to a flea market in Paris and left with nothing but two bags of buttons. I love buttons. This particular jar was full of some very interesting things, besides buttons. Plastic horses and donkeys, tiny little belt buckles, snaps, curtain hooks and rings. But hundreds of wonderful buttons too.
The last time I went to the Antique Mall (with the OnlyChild), I picked up this little beauty:
I can't believe I forgot to show it to you until now. It doesn't work, but I didn't expect to use it anyway.
It wasn't all shopping and eating yesterday. I'm ready to put together all the blocks for Be Yourself. I laid them out on the dining room floor to have a look. I tried to be random, really I did. But random just isn't me so they're set in a pattern.
Now I have this pile to work on connecting for the rest of today (and tomorrow because it's a long weekend).
And I have another finish this weekend. I made the mini version of the Mail Sack.
The pattern didn't call for a zippered pocket but since there is no top closure, I added one.
And another pocket. I sewed on a button for extra security.
Good things all around. How about you? Did you discover any treasures this weekend?
