A little weekend update

This weekend brought some unexpected pleasures and treasures. On Friday afternoon, my friend Pat dropped by to see me and brought me the most beautiful Kaffe Fassett Diva Doll. I will take a photo and post it soon. It was made by Maggie Tuite who lives in Dubai. In Pat's honor, I have named her Patsy LaBelle. She will hang out in the Studio.

This is one of Maggie's Divas. My Patsy is a redhead.
I also had a quick visit from my friend Jeff Turner on Friday night. Mike and I even squeezed in a trip to Ron's Ice Cream for a late night snack! (Yes, my tummy is feeling much better!).

On Saturday morning I had an impromptu visit to the local plant sale with Joannie. We bought a few plants there and also managed to get a few more at Lowes. They have already been planted in the garden, thanks to a little help from Mike. I'm looking forward to seeing my new beauties spread and multiply.

On Saturday night, Mike and I went to Gardner, MA for our friends, Deb and Greg's wedding. It was lovely. Since Gardner is about a 2 hour ride from our house, we treated ourselves and stayed overnight in the hotel where the wedding was held.
Here is our "selfie" shot in our wedding finery.
Fortunately, one of the people at our table took a better photo.
On the way home, we mapped out a route that would allow us to visit the Brimfield Antiques Show. My friend Jeff had gone there earlier in the week and found some cool vintage camera stuff. Mike was hoping to find some vintage ephemera and I was hoping to find some vintage sewing items. We didn't see a lot of "real" antiques, unfortunately most of the stuff I saw looked like it had come from my Dad's garage. Note: the Brimfield Antiques Show is HUGE, and we did not see the entire show. Nor did we leave empty-handed...
Here is Mike checking out the vinyl.
We didn't purchase any antiques, but we did buy this very cool kinetic sculpture for our backyard.
It reminds me of giant lollipops. Mike is going to paint it in neon bright colors.
Not a lot of sewing was done this weekend, but A LOT of sewing will be done this week. Stay tuned!

Pugs and kisses,
