Hi there, how was your weekend? Ours was mellow. On Saturday we we did a bunch of errands and a lunch out. Yesterday we took it easy. :-) Now, I have a quiz for you all. At the Portland Women's Forum meeting last week we had a "White Elephant" sale, people bring things they no longer want and we sell them for a fundraiser. New member Hazel brought a box of vintage costume jewelry and I snapped up 3 items. But.. what are they? They have clips on the back, are about 1 1/2 inches by 2 inches in size. PLEASE tell me what you think they are. More photos of the clip below. The center one is old bakelite which is etched.
Here is the clip on the back which is on a hinge.
Here is the clip open.. soooo.. what is this? Wait.. what?? Who is photo bombing my picture? So.. my guess is a shoe clip used to dress up plain shoes. What is your guess?
On Saturday during our errands we went into the Candy Basket.. an actual CHOCOLATE FACTORY! This is what you see when you walk in the door.. a chocolate fountain that is huge!
We picked up a few boxes of chocolates for gifts. :-)
Isn't always fun to look into a display cabinet loaded with chocolate?
My Hyacinth bloomed and it IS pink.. just what I was hoping for!
My little Narcissus are leaning towards the light.. honey.. I can relate. :-)
Happy little flowers.
A ray of sunshine, little beauty.
Kristi ordered this metal basket and has put all our fruits and vegetables in it, freeing up counter space in the kitchen. Neat idea.
I just thought I'd show you the latest Time cover. I lay a lot of the blame on this man for the current state of confusion and fear in our country. He is in the president's ear all the time and has been writing all the "executive orders" that DT is signing and it appears he doesn't even read them before he signs them.

I forgot to tell you that our Snowdrops are up and some are even in bloom. The Daffodils are also coming up. There is hope yet that winter will end in the not too distant future. Yay! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
