Happy Things

Life has been very crazy in my house. But, who's not busy? My sister-in-law flew in from California for a quick weekend and this allowed me the excuse to go thrifting and sightseeing. I found this great yellow planter ($2.00) and a really cute saucer ($1.00).

Since I was in the city (that's what us country folk call it) I was able to visit the fabric store and I hit the jackpot. Amongst the clearance pile was this beautiful cinnabar tapestry I bought at another store a few months ago. It made some beautiful purses and of course I was unable to find any more of it...until now. I saw it and snatched it up fast.

Since my sister-in-law had never been to St. Louis, we did a little sightseeing and I learned things I didn't know either. It was fun. We had lunch at the Boathouse in Forest Park and drove home. Since it has been several years since we have been back to California, she brought us Sees Candy and a few other goodies. I was hoping she could sneak In-N-Out Burger on the plane, but that was a no go. Oh how I miss the best hamburger in the world!

I also got some great news about my Mimi business tote. Several people bid on the bag and there might have been a little bidding war going on. I am very proud and I hope the winner is happy also.
