|Hmmmmm. I wonder who brought these?|
So, we went to a new cloth shop in town. Yes. I said it. Cloth shop. Ya'll can keep giggling at me. I'm a goober, no doubt about it. ;) They had really pretty fabrics. They seemed to have good prices. I had to ask Trace', I didn't know. They had a lot of the Civil War reproduction fabrics which I LOVE. After that we went to a thrift store that is housed in an old Good's Furniture store. She ain't kiddin' when she said it was big. I love that store. We were supposed to get coffee first at my favorite coffee place, but, um, I was too busy talking and was drawn like a magnet to a store full of bargains... But, we so did need coffee by the end... Granny and the Marm run on coffee.
Here is a gander of some of the goodies I got from the CLOTH store and thrift shop. I think I have them all in the picture. I put them out right away that I forgot to take a picture of them. Oooh, there was a little pot too. There is another 2 yards of fabric, but I am going to use it on my table, so I will show it to you when I finish.

|Guess what these are for...|

Speaking of eBay, I LOVED this grinder when I saw it on Jody's blog, Cobblestone Corner & Grandmas Bisquits. She said she was doing some spring cleaning and was listing some things on eBay. (Yeah. It's helping my Spring cleaning. Truly.) I have always wanted a grinder with the fancy metal top. Very "Arts and Crafts" style, don't you think? Jody is so lovely and sweet! She was so dear to send some DELICIOUS chocolates (Can't show you 'cause they're gone!) and wonderful smelling soap! So generous and thoughtful.Thank you, Jody! Check out her eBay!
And of course, Charlie wanted to make sure he was seen in this posting since his name was mentioned. He says, "Hellllooooooooooo!" Okay, really, right this moment, he is out for the ten count. Yesterday, was blustery. Wind was blowing snow showers sideways. Wind chill factors way low. I would hold my arm out the front door with the leash. It was too bitter cold. Charlie would just go out, do his business, and run back in. Bailey, and my friend Anne's dog, Lexi (Yes, square-to-spare Anne), would just sit out there. Sit. And sit. I could not feel my arm. And then when I look at you lovely chilly blog friends with your snowstorms, well, I wish you warm hugs. Charlie loves to lay body-length on top of you. So, if you are cold, have a furry pup laying on you, the wind is howling outside. Yeah. Let's say not much was accomplished for a few hours yesterday but sawing logs...
