~ It's Monday~ Yesterday was WX Peddlers Faire~

It's Monday and it's going to be a beautiful sunny day. The weekend was busy and fun too, but it's good to be back to my regular routine. For me, today is laundry day, and with the nice weather I love to hang everything outside. Yesterday, was the second Sunday of the month and that means it's time for the WX Peddlers Faire and let me tell you we were there bright and early.....6 a.m.......I found a few little treasures, but I'm really trying not to go over board...especially since I just had a garage sale to get rid of some stuff. I did find these two sweet restaurant creamers for my collection and

another little nut grinder...the little red metal cap pulls off when you are grinding up the nuts.......I really like....
the old powder jars and what is neat about this one, the music still plays....this might be the last of these I buy....yup, running out of places to display them. I adore old linens and look at these pretty pillow slips... someone spent a lot of time stitching these. I
love the delicate flowers and just a bit of crocheting, pretty, pretty. These are in the wash right now and will be going on our bed today.....speaking of my wash, I think it's time to hang the next load up...have a great day, hope it sunny your way...hugs, Linda

I wish I could have gone to the sale with you. You found some wonderful goodies. I love them all, but especially the pillow slips. Won't that be nice for them to hang out in the sun today, ready for a fresh bed tonight?

I started on my laundry today also. Honey Bear brings his home on Friday. I'll have some nice and clean for his trip to Houston on Monday. I only got two loads done and not all folded.
I vacuumed and spot cleaned the carpet in the living room.
Then I went over to Daughter's house to see her. I sure missed her and was anxious to hear about her mission trip.
Then I came home.
I like the embroidered pillowcases. I do not have any like that but I might look for some whenever I next go to an antique shop.
Have a good night.

It has been ages since I hung clothes outside. They smell so good when you do. I really love sheets dried outside.
Your new finds are neat. I know what you mean about no more things to sit around. I am really trying to NOT buy things anymore too. Have a good day in the sunshine.

Hasn't the weather been beautiful! I don't have a clothes line. I've thought about putting one up but I'm afraid my cat would think it was a new toy for him. I love the smell of sheets hung on the line.
