Faking It

It was antiques week in N.H. this past week and people from all over the country were here buying up wonderful things from big shows, that I could not even afford to look at. So I headed for the dump. I found 6 of these glasses, I believe they are crystal as they ring when you tap it with a finger nail. and you can tell they are hand blown from the bottom. But I broke one getting it to the car "grrr" I hate that. They have a very light green tint. I found these stamps at a yard sale for 1.00 I thought it was kind of cute and will sell them.
also at a yard sale I found a new pack and play to have at the house when our new grandchild arrives in December-ish for those of you out of baby mode that is a fold up play pen that they also sleep in. I have to say the yard sale competition is getting out of control. One girl told me she advertised 8 am and had people milling around her yard before 7am. I get that everyone wants the good stuff but come on have some manners about the whole thing! I would kick their sorry butts out of there if it was me. And last night the husband and I went to an auction. Things were going a bit high for my pocket. but I did get one thing. This quilt top. I don't know if I will finish it but I am thinking tree skirt. The colors are a bit brighter than they are in the picture.

I have Monday off and I am going to look/buy a lap top. I only have a desk top right now and I am so excited to move into the 21st century. I have no idea what the hell I am doing so I am going to fake it and hope it works out ok. My daughter and her husband are coaching me. I will let you know what happens.

Oh, let me know how the lap top shopping goes. I am to the point that I now want one, too, but I am so technologically challenged!
The quilt top would make a wonderful tree skirt. I use an old blue and white quilt under my tree and love it.
