It was a beautiful day today. Sunny and 60's. Spring is in the air. Altho' there is a threat of snow Tuesday nite, but we've heard that before (like last week). So Big Tom & Tomkat went to a lawn & garden show and Kitty, Amy (middle daughter) and I went antique shopping. Kitty bought a great old hoosier syle cabinet with enamel counter top and even a screen-covered hole for air circulation. It was on sale for only $95.00! Wish I had taken a picture of it for you all. Here's what I got:

I have a collection of little china dogs and also old figurines. Most of them are small, but I fell in love with this lady. I don't dare bring any furniture home b/c my hubby would be very, very unhappy (mildly put!) We had lots of mother-daughters bonding time. A good time was had by all.

Tomorrow after mass, hubby & I must go out & buy a new clothes dryer. Boo! I was finishing up a load a couple of days ago & it wouldn't start. Big Tom tried to fix but it wasn't gonna happen. Snce it is twelve years old and the cost of repairman, parts & labor would be almost the same, we have opted for a new one. We should have gone today, but it was too pretty to do anything so mundane, don't you agree? Gee, I sure would rather spend all that money on fabric!

Have a great weekend, friends.

It's fun going antiquing isn't it. I love going to our flea market that is huge, every first Sunday of the month. Sorry to hear about your dryer...not a fun thing to shell out money for!! Usually after mass we go to a nice brunch and make it a fun day. That would make me sad to have to shop for a dryer! I guess it needs to be done though!!
