Been thrift store shopping!
|Perfect book for this time of year!--can't wait to give this to Fairy Granddaughter!|
This gardening book looks fun too......both books have big bright pretty pictures.
This little fairy book looks fun as well:
Found a cool dinosaur book too:
|the cover is kind of scary.....but the pictures inside the book are very nice|
I will save this one and give her close to Christmas.........it looks FUN!!
I got myself some books too.
|I think this one is set in the 60s,70s, the "hippie days" LOL|
This Savannah one looks good too! think there are two books inside. Has any of y'all read this author?
|A Life of Bright Ideas book|
I bought this little book new. I love love love the purple leather cover, so nice!
|never heard of this author---but it said "Charleston".....so of course I picked it up! LOL It looks to be set in the Civil War era.|
..........and THIS BOOK! LACE!! I think I remember reading this back in the early 80s!!, how bout y'all????
found two lovely dresses for Fairy Granddaughter. This one in yellow has a pretty lace bodice.
and this lilac one has pretty lace over-lays as well.
"fancy" dresses. Maybe she can wear them to church or to a birthday party. Or save them for next Easter.
I got this big coffee table book:
|this is an older book, but has some pretty pictures in it|
...........and This pretty blue and white skirt!
it's swirly, twirly, and summery! LOL
|Today's "arm candy"--big blue marble bracelets! LOL|
I hope y'all know that I share my "beads of the day" and "arm candy" of the day strictly for fun, right?--this is in no way/shape/or form "bragging". Almost all my jewelry is fun, cheap, plastic stuff, ha ha LOL--certainly nothing brag worthy. I adore sparkling gaudy costume jewelry--it's fun to wear and that is why I share it. About 90% of my beads/necklaces are ones my Mom gifted me with, SO MANY over the years (pretty much every time she found a necklace or bracelet she loved, she would buy TWO, one for her, and one for me, she was very generous)--I do love to still wear them and they remind me of her.
Broken walls, crumbling bricks, ancient flaky paint, rust, locks, gates.........some of my favorite things to photograph!
|wow, the size of those leaves!|
|Purple plumbago creeping underneath fences!|
..........and our hurricane roses bloomed! They usually bloom for me twice a summer, sometimes 3 times. This year they are butter yellow. In previous years they have been yellow/orange streaked, pink and yellow, and now just yellow. They keep me guessing! LOL I read somewhere that they do this because of grafting the stems?
|Beads today were dainty little blue and white glass beads. My Mom gave these to me.|
The time has now come to put away white shoes and pocketbooks. (and white dresses and skirts too I suppose--although I have been known to put on a white skirt or white slacks with wintry sweaters and called it "winter white", ha ha LOL) I know......I am hopelessly old fashioned with these old somewhat outdated Southern "rules" and customs, LOL!----just how I was raised, y'all. (Mom, Ma-Maw, all aunts, etc.--Southern Ladies all) LOL!
I've been slowly putting away my summer clothes and getting out Fall things. I'll be so happy when it's chilly enough to wear VELVET again! and SWEATERS!!
Hope y'all had a nice weekend! So glad you came to visit me today, thanks for stopping by.
