The rest of the weekend, I didn't even get dressed! I lounged around, blogged and cut some quilt squares and crocheted some grannies for an afghan. Perfect weekend, if you ask me.
Today, I spent 4 1/2 hours at the storage unit. It's a long story about the storage unit but some of the things have been in there for ten years! Ten! I threw away two city garbage cans full today and brought some things home and bagged some things up for GoodWill and I still have hours of stuff to go through.
It was fun, though. I found some things that I thought were lost to me forever. Things I had just seen pics of in my old photobucket and wished I had. The last box I went through was full of milk glass and aprons! Heaven. It was like going to a thrift store or church yard sale but it cost me nothing.
There are a couple of larger pieces that I forgot to photograph. They're in the sink waiting to be washed.
I found some more yarn, too, which meant I didn't have to stop at ACMoore on the way home. I needed more yarn for my grannies and I found the perfect gray that was just what I needed.
I'll show some pics of the squares in a day or so and of the larger pieces of milk glass and another piece that's green. Not sure what it is but I think it will be nice for planting a jade in. One less thing I have to buy now. Yay!
Oooh I also found my Warren Kimble prints I'd been wishing for. I bought them when I worked for Avon. So happy to have found them. I guess Tim put them all in a box and put them there and I didn't even know it. I left so much behind because I didn't want him to come home to bare walls. I was starting to regret that decision because there's so much stuff I never went back to get. I'm really grateful that he boxed that stuff up. I'm still missing stuff but hey, Warren Kimble, Aprons and Milk Glass? I'm happy!
Have a great week everyone!
Sounds like you had a fantastic weekend! I love the weekends I can stay in my pajamas. Stuff that has been in storage for ten years? Oh, I bet there are some real treasures to be found! Always like finding the things that I think I will have to buy. Wishing you a creative week!
That DOES sound like the perfect weekend! lol (especially the pajamas part!)
How fun to find all those goodies, and get your storage cleaned up a bit too (which is always a challenge!)
I am so pleased how life has turned out for you. Sounds like you had a fun night watching Mike play. And sounds like you had fun rediscovering some of your goodies.
Sending much love to you.
I love it when I find forgotten things too. There are also a lot of things that I haven't forgotten about and wish I could find! LOL
That DOES sound like a fantastic weekend! I took one look at photo and went "OOOHHHH!!!" with giddy delight! :)
Sounds lovely! You must have been so proud watching your son play. I get quite teary at things like that. Thanks for the Blogger tip, I'm still struggling with it, I do hope they change it back! :) xx
