Joy in the hunt and find?PRICELESS
I find my best days are those in which I remember to do something joyous for myself.
Yesterday,after a trip to my darling hairdresser, and before going to visit my mom in the hospital ,I drove through the Evergreen Historic district in Mesa. I was looking for a particular house,Kim, of Mystic Paper, had mentioned to me. I did not find the house but I did stumble upon an Estate sale in the neighborhood. I stopped. I could not help myself. Sort of like the old saying,"The devil made me do it." To my joy, I found the above items and my heart was singing. I plan to use the tablecloth as a window covering for our cottage we are renovating in Pinetop, AZ. Different pieces of vintage lace will be hung on all the windows and doors. Pictures of this will follow in the future. One of my favorite colors is red and I do crochet and knit. How could I ever leave this darling coat behind for a mere $3.00? I also reinvent clothing, so to speak. Pictures of this will also follow in the future. And last, but not least, the vintage sheet music which I staged the picture of in my garden, as the title reads, Songs of the Soil. Three treasures of joy. Today, for joy, I posted! How about you? What was your joy today?

Hi CeCe,
My joy today was reading your lovely comment on my blog! I have not finished my little book either, but I will! We had such a good time at our little table. Nice score at the garage sale!
