Today, we will be tidying the cottage, working in the garden, mostly weeding, boring but necessary.

We will possibly be painting some interior windows, long in need of freshening.

Yesterday, Lindsay and I stopped at a yard sale on our way home from getting groceries. We both found treasures - she a pair of riding boots that fit Rachel and cost $1.00, and a hay net, also for $1.00 that is used in the horse trailer. I found upolstery fabric! Unbelieveable! In colors and patterns that suit my home for $5.00 a roll! Now, they are not full rolls, but their is plenty on each roll to do several projects. One is a stripe fabric that I want to use to recover a small chair that rocks, that we picked up for free along the road last year. This is a great little chair, except it is currently covered in horrible fabric. ( I am not opposed to picking up free items.) The other fabric reminds me of a colonial pattern and I believe I am going to make living room curtains out of it! I am excited!

Have a lovely weekend!


  1. Sounds like you have a full day ahead of you! But always nice to have things done!

    Awesome about the fabric! I love finding stuff like that, just out of the blue!

    Have a good Saturday, cousin!

  2. What a blessing to find such wonderful treasures at great prices. I do hope that you'll share your reupholstery project!

  3. Any improvement with Kyle?

    Hope you are all feeling better...

  4. Sale items are always great!!! I go to those specifically for preschool toys, then all I do is wash them in bleach and they are good to go! That reminds me, I have a chair that needs to be recovered!
