barn sale




On Sunday, driving home from picking apples, the kids and I passed a barn sale. Here's some of what I brought home.

1. lovely old french bottle.
2. beautiful old afghan, perfect condition. I love thinking about whoever made it and the time it took them to pick the colors, design it and do the crocheting. I wish they knew how much I am appreciating their handiwork!
3. geranium painting.

This showed up in my e-mail today. A new film from Toast. It's so pretty!

Oh, the afghan - what a treasure..! I tried to watch the Toast movie, but the shaky cam makes me a little dizzy. I'll have to content myself with looking at the beautiful (still) photographs.
And I love the dolls, by the way... So clever and sweet.

one thing I miss most about new england is the old crates or little tables by the roadside with old bottles filled with wild flowers. you pay in a tin or jar and walk away feeling like the world is pretty perfect.
