Today was one of those fun days. Boyd was willing to go shopping! Matter-of -fact he had several stores he wanted to go to, also. So, enjoying the spontaneity that retirement offers, we headed to the Library where I picked up the next 3 books in a series I've been reading by Marne Davis Kellogg about a woman my age who is a cat burglar. Really fun reads.
Then down to Appleton WI to Hobby Lobby to buy a brass door knocker for my dollhouse-in-progress. Also found brass door handles, brass house numbers, a wooden floor for 2 of the rooms, and landscaping items for the outside of the dollhouse.
Then we went to International Market where Boyd shopped for wine.
On to Penzey's Spice Shop where Boyd also picked up some must-haves (remember he's the cook at our house).
I ran into a shop next door and found a great tunic (they're in) for fall.
We finished up at Starbucks with Grande Green Tea Frappacinos. I love them!
Day over... came home... 3 packages on the porch. WOW!
I especially was pleased with the fabric (in above photo) from 'Fat Quarters'. The fabric on the top is a Holly Jolly 'Jelly Roll'. They just flattened it out for shipping. And a yard of each of the other holiday prints.
It felt like Christmas today!
P.S. Just turned on the TV and they're showing reruns of PROJECT RUNWAY... my favorite TV show. Tonight they're going to announce the designers for season #4. Can't wait! If you haven't seen Project Runway and you love design and fabric and sewing, then you'll love this show.
