A Banner Day






It is amazing what one can do without walking much, when need be. I am in the middle of a 4 day off my knee respite, and got cabin fever. I went to a little thrift shop, and hit the pot of gold! The folio is a 1963 apparently complete Nat Geo Atlas at an unbelievably low price. The rest is the costume jewelry I picked up for a song too, only 1 piece over $4 ($8). When I opened one of the lockets, the picture was still inside!

Then there are the silk and cheescloth that I dyed, what a scrumptious color! And in my quest for organization, I have found a super way to store my fancier beads. These were previously in little labeled bags, that I could hardly see in to identify. AND, I didn't have to walk very much at all. A banner day, I say, a banner day.

Hi, Kim! Love your blog -- that fabric's my favorite color!! Just saw your post on the ITH list and came over to visit and say hello. Sweet kitty -- er, LION, reading the same magazine I'm working my way through this afternoon! There's so much to read in each issue, it's like a big, thick book! Hope you are feeling better, and enjoy some fun time to sit down and read and just enjoy your weekend.
