Few recent finds

I've really enjoyed my week of random photos. The assignment made me focus more on the subjects that I photographed.

In the past couple of weeks we found a few items while thrifting at Frenchy's. A couple of weekends ago when my daughter was visiting from New Brunswick she bought this chair. It needs some sanding and varnishing but only minor repairs. It also needs a pillow, she's going to look for one in Moncton.

I found this small stash - tablecloth for our picnic table, small piece of fabric, an apple slicer (don't know if that's the appropriate name for it) and a pair of brown leg warmers.

They were the best part of my purchase that day. They are full leg length and so soft. This will come in handy during long winter evenings, sitting around knitting and reading.

Hope everyone is well and keeping warm (ya, in May). It is still very cool in our neck of the woods.

Love the chair and LOVE the leg warmers; what a great idea to keep warm -- you know I'm always looking for ideas like those.

Colleen - the leg warmers are so soft. I used them one evening last week and I did'nt want to take them off to go to bed.

Kim said...

Wow leg warmers - it's been years since I have seen those!

It is still pretty cool here too, only a high of 11 today. The weekend is supposed to get into the 20s - man I hope so! (or I am going to need some leg warmers too :))

Kim - I remember leg warmers many years ago when I was a teenager and everyone had them. They were hip then and still are.

Leg warmers bring back memories of hmmmmm let me see - Olivia Newton John & "Let's Get Physical - what a fun find. That lovely chair would beautiful in your lovely perennial garden you featured a few weeks ago in a post.

Hello Vickie

Rather cool here at my house as well. Going down to 2c overnight.

The leg warmers look handy for sitting around in draughty places -like where my computer is situated lol
Take care

Barb - wish the chair was mine but it belongs to my daughter so it will be making its way to New Brunswick after papa gives it a minor facelift.

Cathy - thanks for leaving a comment. I suppose you guys in Australia are slowly going into Fall while we are slowly "trying" to slip into a warmer Spring.
