Saturday hubby and I pulled some weeds, ran to the grocery store, the Borders closing sale and Office Max. While at Office Max I found this neat pencil pouch that I thought would be great to hold the little misc. things that get thrown in the bottom of my stitching bag (tape measure, clips, pen, stitching tools, small colored pencils, etc...). It was under $3.00.
They came in several different colors but I went with the black. It goes with any color stitching bag I may use and I have my OCD to deal with when it comes to things going together.
Saturday also brought some fun mail. I bought this off e-bay (or the "bay of evil" as my friend Lisa calls it):
Today we got up super early, picked up my Dad and drove to Lawrenceburg, Indiana (about 30 minutes from here) for the monthly Antique Mart. It rained early this morning so it was muddy and not all the vendor spaces were filled. I did manage to find two things to bring home.
A witch star, #2 whiskey jug (not sure of the maker of this one. I can't seem to find a good place to tell me about the marks on the stoneware I so dearly love).
And we were not sure what this is but I LOVE it. I am going to hand it in the kitchen and use it as a two holed shelf. It is aged so nice. The bottom and the middle pieces are metal and it looks as if the metal pieces are supposed to be moved in and out of the grooves. Some kind of slicer I suppose.
