Saturday morning, Hubby and I got a late start, but still went out for a little yard sale-ing. The finds are getting fewer and fewer between as the season peters out. I did buy three really nice houseplants for $1 each. I have dreadful luck with with living plants. As soon as I bring one home, it gets depressed and suicidal. But for a buck, I was willing to risk it all over again.
Afterwards, I was pleasantly surprised by the experience of visiting the Horton Street Market, after a very long hiatus. I used to go to the market with my mother many a Saturday morning to get farm fresh produce. It was better than I remembered, with lots of new additions, including Spicer's and The Dutch Bakery. (I only gave these market stalls a deep and nostalgic whiff -- sticking to my weight loss plan!) and local craftspeople. The produce vendors were selling only locally grown, seasonal, pesticide-free, and in some cases organically grown fruits and vegetables. I'm looking forward to making a visit to the market a regular weekly routine. Here's a link to market manager Tricia Herbert's blog.
Then last night? ELTON JOHN CONCERT!!! It was great, and I really enjoyed myself.
Today, Hubby and I went for a Sunday drive up to Lucan, to visit Lucan Architectural Salvage. I saw an idea in a magazine to use old floor grates as outdoor door mats, so I'm looking for a couple. No luck! But a couple of doors down, I spied a little treasure at Mr. Haney's Market: a tiny little Beswick kitten figure, to keep my bigger Persian cat (also Beswick - paid a dime for it at a yard sale!) company.
This afternoon, I escaped to my bedroom and finished stitching down the binding on Lucky Stars.
It's been a good weekend for me!
How was your weekend?
