Oh goodness, I feel like such a whiner after that last post. Thanks for bearing with me. Sometimes you just need to vent, you know? Really, life is quite good.
I am so excited about Jennifer's Vintage Sheet fat quarter exchange. (I just got my FQ's off by the skin of my teeth.) Before I did I decided to hit a thrift store which I haven't done in a while. I'm becoming more discriminating with my thrifting. I have too much junk as it is, so I'm only buying stuff I really love AND will actually use soon. I found a couple of good vintage sheets and another sheet that is not vintage (the one on the bottom) but has great potential. My 10-year-old was with my and has dibs on it to make a skirt first.
The gold one is an oval baker and this one is a medium-size serving bowl. I used them tonight for serving fruit salad (yummy, yummy) and the baked potatoes in the baker. They looked so cheerful and summery. Don't you just love summer food? Off the grill or lots of fresh fruits and vegetables. I do. The best food there is.
We also tried to have a backyard camp out tonight, but the weather had other ideas and when the wind kicked-up so strong that it nearly blew the tent away, we had to give up on that idea. Which we did right before the rain started chucking down.
