It was a fun day yesterday shopping at the thrift stores in Clear Lake and Mason City.
First — books. I don’t often take the time to search the books but I found some yesterday.
I’ve listened to Pillars of the Earth and loved it. The Hosseini book is the third one he’s written and I loved the other two. Dog books, of course. Amy Tan I’ve read before as well as Sue Miller. All those books for $5.50. I gotta read faster!
This ironstone plate has those wonderful raised dots around the edge and I’ll add it to my white collection in the piano room.
This retro set is for my niece Jenny. If you’re reading this, Jenny, what do you think?
This very solid oak school desk chair was $5.00 and it will make a great plant stand!
You might remember I look for Homer Laughlin dishes in the Virginia Rose pattern because my nephew Dan Rose married Virginia last summer. I found this bowl for $2.00.
I also stopped at Walgreens to pick up this copy of American Patchwork and Quilting because Jo’s quilt is on the cover – congratulations to Jo’s Country Junction – and this issue honored Laura Boehnke’s 25 years as their quilt tester.
And last but not least I bound this UFO last night and hung it in the kitchen.
