... since I posted some of my Frenchy findings. Here are some of the items I found in the last weeks (even months).
This black jacket has to be my best find in years. Honest. It's an Athletic Works feather-filled. I can walk in -22 wind chill and I don't feel the cold on my upper body at all. The scarf is another good find at Frenchy's. It's a William Brunton Hand Knits, hand woven of pure lambswool in Scotland.
I so wish I could have found more of the Cashmereno in the yarn box but this was the only one. I'll knit little baby booties or something. The bigger skein is from Natural Dyed Wools, from Ireland. The dye is from red cabbage.
In one visit I found these three pair of foot luxury. The boots are made of leather, the black shoes are from a company in France and the brown are Born. Was I excited to find a pair of Born - well, yes ! I mainly wear the Born shoes with long skirts and tights. A more Boho style which I love and is so comfy.
I'm not really one to have decorative flags and swirlies hanging outside the house but this one will go in the orchard out back next Summer to keep the birds out of the cherry tree. He's so cute.
And this quilt, I still can't figure out why it was in the $1.25 drop-cloth bin. There's nothing wrong with it really. It's for a child's single bed. I'll store it away until I find a use for it.
Hope everyone is having a good weekend and keeping warm. This blogger informed me today that it was 55 days til Spring - yahoooooo. That's not bad - 55 days. Y'all know how time's flying around here. Time to get this out :
