Last weekend my friend and I headed to Austin on Friday morning! Isn't it wonderful to take a vacation day from the office and just do "girly things"? I NEED those .................
Chappell Hill is about an hour's drive outside of Houston...but it might as well be a world away. It's just so quite and peaceful and beautiful.
I got a couple of linens......I just liked the pretty little flowers on them and it's hard to find Cottage-y things with Purple...so I snagged this. Plus the well made candy thermometer should hold up to my fudge and peant brittle recipes. And I've been needing a new cookie/bisquit cutter. And lo and behold, I found this set for $4.00! SCORE!
This board brings back so many childhood afternoons...playing Chinese Checkers, Monopoly and Life. Did YOU play those games?
Isn't this a bright, colorful fabric swatch? Two "purple" linens in one shopping trip....it was my LUCKY weekend!
Here the the whole tablecloth. It was in great shape and only $10.
But I think my all time favorite find that day was this book, "The Wonderful Tarbaby". This was another favorite childhood read and the illustrations are gorgeous. Are there any childhood books that you always look for?
