We got a lot done today, running some
errands for fun and to buy some things we needed.
My day's "adventures" were the
mostly consisted of shopping)...
We went to a few retail stores in the town
nearby, one of which I bought
a lovely new pair of Spring/Summery sandals at!
...then I had a really enjoyable time at the oh so
frequent stopping point we seem to end up in
quite often: the craft store!
Today I ventured into a few areas of the store
I hardly ever look in... the aisles
that have the 'small things' for home decorating
that make your home feel complete.
I loved these wrought iron decorations you can hang in your house
or right outside your front door. They are popular
in the South- I have seen so many
of them at the homes of my friends and neighbors-
as personal touches to make your
home more "home sweet home" and I love them!
There was also a whole aisle/section of decorations
and iron and even porcelain like
plates and figures with messages and reminders of
faith or inspiration on them.
These were really nice
also, and I enjoyed looking at all of the ones
After looking there for awhile, I headed
to the sewing and fabrics
section of course... and looking through the pattern
books I found a pattern for this dress I thought
I love how beautiful it is with all
it's pleats and puffy sleeves and skirt, and it
is so much like what the true antebellum Southern
Which is probably why I was
attracted to it :)
For now, though, I could only sew this
one in my dreams, hahaha. Maybe
. . .
To end the day we went on a walk
just as the sun was going
down, which was lovely and such a nice
way to end a fun day.
Those were the adventures of my day.
Hope you had a wonderfully Blessed Friday!
