No Place Like Home!

It's nice to be home. We spent the weekend in Arkansas at my Dad's. Also took a side trip to Memphis, which we had never been to. Beale Street is a wild and crazy and fun place. Also visited the Civil Rights Museum while there. Of course we garage saled and hit the jack pot this weekend. Above is a little German house bank and a German or Swiss bottle stopper. I thought they looked cute together.
At an estate sale I found these linens including a Vera dish towel and a towel with the pattern printed on it. I love finding these, because I like to embroider them myself. The orange linen is a table runner with french words going around it. Really cute.
I found the green hankie above for 25 cents and the unique little salt and pepper at a different sale.
I bought the jar of buttons and bag of rick rack stuff and the lady told me to take whatever sewing stuff I wanted. So I came home with a pile of felt. I love vintage felt, because the texture is different and sometimes you find neat colors. We hit about 7 sales. I love going in a retirement area, because they have different stuff then around my house. Hubby scored a great set of binoculars so he was a happy camper. It was a fun weekend, but it's always great to get back home! It's about 100 degrees here and really humid-stay cool! Hope you all had a great weekend.
