Hi there! Are you guys snowed in? We are... 5 whole inches. It doesn't take much to snow us in Tennessee!
Hope your weekend was wonderful. We went out on Saturday and foofed and fluffed the booths.
And, then we went treasure hunting.
Ladies (and the few guys that read,) it has been too long. I missed it so. We drove out to one little trove that was close til March! But we did happen upon a new place that we had never been to before.
And, there is where we met....
Have I ever mentioned my utter weakness for ironstone? It is bad. Mr. Hughes actually picked out this sweet thing. You see, I have been lusting over an ironstone punch bowl for awhile... but why haven't you bought it? you ask. Well, let's just say that it was around $375. And it still sits, in the same spot, for over 2 years. And, don't get me wrong... it may very well be worth it... just not to me.
So, naturally, when the Mr. told me he thought I needed this bowl... I wasn't going to argue...see, it is even up on a short little pedestal.
We also came home with a very cool vintage school map of Asia and the USSR, I will show you that once Mr. Hughes cleans his desk off.
So, when I woke up this morning and saw all this white, I knew just what to do. First, I froze my hiney off painting a couple of pieces for the booth... show you later... then after cleaning the house up just a bit, I bundled my little hyena up and took him out to throw snow at each other. It was fun... what else can I say....kids make everything better.
We built a mini snowman with a baby carrot nose and vintage buttons. People, I know... he isn't the best... the snow packs really easy but doesn't sculpt.... people from up North, your tips are welcome.
baby hughes loved it! This is his first snow that he was able to play in.... he took right to throwing it
Now, we are warm and dry. One of us is napping. And I am about to grab another cup of green tea and see what I can shake up around here! (Have you seen the large stack of suitcases in the latest Country Living... I so want to copy that....)
bye for now!
