Before we left, she presented me with these...
Three milk bottles from our home town of Hamburg NY. The 2 in the back are clearly from Hamburg Dairy, and the one in the front is from Quimby, also of Hamburg. I thought that was such a sweet gift and shows my kid really knows me and the kind of things I like.
Oh, and look what vintage goody my Mom gave me!
That lovely set in the top right corner. It is Pottery Guild and so cute! (you can also see a little Stangl teapot sticking out on the left, I scored that for 2.95 because the lid is missing.
I did manage to thrift a bit. Actually, my Mom and I stopped in Ocala on our way home to hit up 2 thrift stores.
and full of this sweet note paper.
Great Hall Pottery tea pot, I paid 7.50 because there was a chip on the spout that was glued back on. You can hardly tell and I love the shape. I don't mind these little flaws, especially when it makes something so affordable. Afterall, goodness knows I am full of flaws myself! LOL
This was a strange impulse purchase. A bag of billard balls for 2.00. Not sure what I can repurpose the rest into, but for now I have these four on the side of my mantle, displaying my house number.
And a pint sized apron for my pint sized helper, Sophie. One great thing about having two kids so far apart in age is that I now see how fast Emma grew up and now she is off on her own... woosh... it flew by! It makes me appreciate every moment with Sophie that much more. I try to take mental snapshots of every little thing so that I can really treasure each and every minute.
Speaking of Sophie, I have been making some cute little ruffle skirts out of vintage pillow cases for her and will post a tutorial here in the next couple days.
