My dad turns 80 at the end of the month, and we're planning a party for him. It's not a surprise; in fact, he requested it and picked the date. He's helpful that way.
So I got together with my sister last weekend to make party plans, and this little table mat idea popped into my head.
Happy Mom's Day! Hope you are having a good one. My daughter gave me some beautiful plants for Mother's Day (and mowed my lawn, and ran errands, and bought me lunch, and her boyfriend did a whole bunch of computer setup work for me—wow!). One of the plants was a gorgeous hanging fuchsia basket and the other was a beautiful perennial lily, which I planted in my flower bed today.
I would show you pictures, but my camera battery ran out of juice and had to go on the charger, so that will have to wait, as will pictures of a couple of thrift scores from today.
But I will report (with mixed emotions) that what I did not buy today at Goodwill was a very good-looking Singer 503 Slant-o-matic, aka Rocketeer. A sweet vintage sewing machine for $24.99. It was really hard to pass up, but I stayed strong. After all, I had just cleaned part of the basement this weekend, muttering the whole while about having too much sh--/stuff in my sewing room. *Sigh* Tell me I did the right thing?
