We had kinda given up on yard sales. In the old days, we found treasures galore and so, were always on the hunt. My husband is a bookseller, so that is an obvious quest. But on a recent lovely Saturday morning, we had a "paydirt" day and found all sorts of goodies. For some reason, lots of cloth: quilt, hand-woven throw, table runner.The tool box made a perfect home for the paints I got for my daughter's birthday gift. I did get an old croquet set, but showed great restraint in passing up a strange old set of women's golf clubs in a really cool canvas case. I still think about it, though.

Miki has returned from her travels and we have been enjoying the magazines she brought back, Premium and So-En. The clothing images tend to be quirkier and have provided some whimsical inspiration for the week's designing. One article features women and their own various style choices, another spotlights this stunning designer with the lovely grey up-do ( I am afraid I cannot read her name). Even Harriet (dachshund) is amused. My own work this week has tilted to the east a bit, I think!
