Well, it's been a while, so I wanted to say hello! Things are good in Zootsuitland, just working and staying busy in the garden, Mother's day and visiting with some friends I haven't seen in a while. Loving the great Spring weather, aren't you?? I have picked up some goodies and am especially glad I found another chenille bedspread ~ MINE DON'T LAST LONG WITH THESE HOUNDDOGS TOENAILS!! At least not in perfect shape...but they always make great pillows, etc! This one is pretty perfect, though!
Then, I found a few other things...

This cake carrier, my third red and white one, was only 3.00, so I had to get it, it's not perfect but cute.
This cute Rockabilly squaredance blouse with pearls and lace, loved the tag!

I swear this pattern is Joanie on Mad Men, or at least the inspiration for her!

Glad it's almost the weekend!

I've been looking for a good chenille bedspread for
years. Whaaaaaa!!!

I have chenille bedspreads, but they get damaged, so I am wondering if a patchwork quilt made out of chenille pieces would be something cool to make? Thanks, Linda and Sandy!

Your glider does look like a comfy place to nap! The candy dish is, well, dishy.
