It's FINALLY spring.


On the way to the Estate sale this morning my mother kept saying "It'll all be gone." She was so wrong. Haha! Mom was wrong.
We were there about two and a half hours, mostly looking through the clothes. Really, this woman had tons of clothes. Lots and lots of shoes were left, probably because they are size 5.5, but I bought a few pairs anyway for my shop. Most of what I bought is for my shop, some really fabulous outfits, some two piece. I did fall in love with this floral cardigan, which is the cutest sweater I've ever seen, and the little blue one, perfect for spring. I think she made them, as I also got a bunch of needlework magazines, but they fit perfectly, I'm so short waisted lots of sweaters from that era are too long. Of course I'm still obsessing about suits even though most are a bit out of season, but I did find a frilly little pink 60s suit that is just perfect. Also a blender! It's so darling, and so sturdy, I'll bet there were more matching appliances yesterday.

I got a little bag of collars and cuffs, so sweet. These gloves were the only exciting ones left, bright yellow and clingy, and up to my shoulder. And I wish there was a way to re-fill this little lipstick tube! I will find a way I swear. I've heard of freezing little lipstick, and just popping it on, so I'll have to try. Aaaaaaaand, stockings! I can't believe these were all left, I grabbed a bunch, then later grabbed the rest, I knew I would regret if I didnt take them. In the end the nice woman running the sale gave them to me because I bought lots and lots of treasures. Just in time too, I snagged my last pair this afternoon! None of them seamed, but I counted 48 pairs, and still need to go through a mis-matched pile and pair them as best I can.

Right after the sale my mother and I went to my six year old nephews soccer game, which was a barrel of laughs. Watching little boys and girls run around and not quite know whats going on is a hoot. But he made a goal, yayyy! Such nice weather and this week is supposed to be even warmer!
