This past Spring during my nephew's wedding reception, I told my twin sister we needed to start planning a birthday trip for our 55th birthday...next year. I wanted to go to Disney World. We had a year to plan and save for the trip.
She kindly informed me we turned 55 this November, not next. Wait!! What?!? Oh darn. I was still back in 2015. I hadn't made it to 2016 yet. So no Disney but we did go to Canton First Monday Trade Days. It's as fun if not funner (that's a word, right?). I love shopping the flea market area of Canton and so does Theresa.
We had a blast and found plenty of treasures. Theresa found the large flower pots she wanted - on sale even!!
I love transferware and this "Friendly Village" bowl had to come home with me:
Pyrex is another thing I've fallen in love with. I added these containers to my collection. I just love the green and white design!
I've been wanting an old typewriter. This one was just waiting for me to find it! I can't wait to put notes in it.
This small drop leaf table caught my eye right away. It is narrow enough for my entryway. Theresa bought it for my birthday present!
I was also on the hunt for something unique to use as a paper towel holder. I found it in the silver fondue burner base. It holds it up off the counter and looks great with my new counters!
Back at the farm, Bruce presented me with a large box and announced he'd gotten me something. What could it be? The metal trash can I asked for?
No! To say I squealed with delight is an understatement! I opened the box to see this:
Bruce put it up for me Saturday near the art studio!
Friday night, Theresa and I celebrated our Double Nickel with an extraordinary supper at Sabor A Pasion. (It was my gift to her) We even dressed alike for the occasion. (No, we don't normally). LOL.
