Buyers Remorse

 Antiquing wasn't as much fun as we had hoped it would be. We really didn't find anything. It was disappointing.
Now we won't be independently wealth.
But that doesn't mean we didn't buy anything! Oh no, so not true.
We made a stop at out local TJ Maxx and I hit pay dirt with some Halloween decorations. A couple of bone candelabras. Potion bottles. The biggest mercury glass bottle this side of Texas. Dish towels and some labels to make my own spooky bottles. It was definitely the best stop we made.
 I did manage to find a couple of linens that should make something pretty. I also found a pestle (?) to add to my collection.
And...
 well, this didn't come home with us. But it did give us a laugh.  Could you imagine this 15 foot statue in your yard? Really!
 One of my favorite places is in a very rustic building. There are times when you feel a bit faint when you look down and see the ground several feet below the holes in the floor you're standing on.
This is in an old warehouse near the train tracks. If you're lucky, the train some times rattles by while you're inside. It's quite an experience, really it is.
Then I came home to a very lonely kitty. He was so happy to see me. So happy he feel asleep playing. But I still think he loves me.

I'm still quilting. Yesterday I finished ditching the middle basket and leaves. Next will be the grid work. Funny that's all straight lines, but it may take longer to do that than it took to ditch the rest.
I'm just going to keep at it and I hope to be finish sometime this year, Because I dated it, it will expire if I don't.

Have a wonderful weekend. I'll cross my finger that you'll get lots of sewing done on your projects if you do the same for me.
Take care, Brandie
