We have a new lamb in our menagerie. Thank you, you know who you are. :-) She fits right in with the pilgrims on the table. She'll also be hanging on our Christmas tree!
Dayle alerted me to a collection of vintage cookie and biscuit cutters on Corbett Un-Stuff. I let the seller know I'd take them. She delivered them right to our door. :-)
There are two chicken cutters, a horse and I think a bunny, along with hearts and circles and such.
She also was selling her grandmother's basket full of handkerchiefs. Well.. of course I had to adopt these. I intend to use them instead of adding to the landfill with paper kleenex.
The seller is going through a divorce and is selling her collections to lighten her load and to raise $$. She is raising two grandsons, and now will be on her own. :-(
It was fun to look through the old hankies.. a lot of lovely embroidery and hand crocheted and tatted edgings. Now, I have a question for you.. what the heck are these two doing? My idea is they are jumping on a seesaw and flying up in the air. And what nationality are the girls? I don't recognize the dress.
My favorites are the embroidered and lacy edged ones. Which is your favorite?
This one is a favorite with the flowers.
And another flowery one.
Today I will be getting the table cleared for tomorrow's feast. I'll add two leaves and put the tablecloth on. Then my turkey dishes, crystal goblets and silverware. Some dusting and tidying will occur.
If you celebrate it and if you don't.. why not have a feast and give thanks for all you have and join us?
((hugs)), Teresa :-)
