A Little Apartment Love and Treasure Shopping
We went to a couple of yard sales yesterday. I got this pretty crock. I've been wanting one to keep my yarn in as I crochet so it doesn't roll around. Especially now that a certain little furry boy lives here.
I've started collecting (it seems) these little glass refrigerator dishes. When Carrie at the Blue Nymph did a post a while back about them being more energy efficient than plastic containers I started watching for them. I really like them because (besides being more energy efficient) you can serve things right on the table in them because they're so pretty. Of course, you could always use it as a candy dish or anything you want.
Also got this pretty little vase, a brand new Pampered Chef spring-form cake pan with an additional little heart shapey thingey (for $1.00!) and some mini muffin tins. We got it all for around $7.00 so I came home a happy girl.
I finally did some painting today. I wanted something simple for the living room. It's really started to warm up since I've been showing it some love.
Yesterday I remembered that I had this little watermelon crochet potholder that my grandmother made so I got it out for summer. Isn't it sweet?
Last night I looked down beside me and Zeke was sitting like this between us, just hanging out watching tv. lol Of course, I had to get a picture.
He has claimed this basket and apparently my unstuffed cushion...oh and this little doily that's on my desk. I did have pretty things sitting on it but they were clearly in his way so I moved them and then he fell asleep.
So that's kind of been our weekend. I hope yours was a good one.
