i'll keep it short this week.
this knitting bag is so cool. he told me it was $4, but I had to give him a $5 bill and tell him to keep the change.
i. love. this.
a knitting bag. one with little legs that you can set down!
i'm not a great knitter, but I have a great bag.
oh. the chair? yeah. that's a longer story. in a nutshell, the house next to us was "abandoned"for about 5 years by an elderly lady who moved to a nursing home nearby. she had been an antique collector (and seller) with a fondness for all things that go in the garden. her overgrown yard was strewn with many wonderful things, and the house, left open(!), was packed to the gills with antiques. her property was creepy and overgrown and we were more than a bit scared to even look in the windows.
eventually, one day, her granddaughter came to town and began to discard of things. this chair was one the things she was "dumping" and I was RIGHT THERE breathing down her neck to take it off her hands...along with a few other gems. unfortunately for me, the granddaughters husband came along a bit later and told her to STOP giving the antiques away! he knew the value of them. they sold off all that was in the house (a lot.) and that was that. i never got to see what was inside...but I know it was amazing. you should have seen me staring from next store as they loaded pile after pile of antiques into a big POD over the course of a week. i just about cried when I saw it picked up and driven away. sigh. so close and so far.
Anyway....on to YOU.
