empty apt on a village friday

although spot
seemed to like
my dad,
she's glad
to have
her couch back.


it was the perfect day
for rain.
a day to clean up
and get inside stuff
done...
and lunch with
a good friend
who just got back
from
one of my favorite places
where another dear friend
lives (with her new baby!)...

we hand
a lovely lunch
of pizza
during the
few sunny hours
of the day...

the perfect way
to end the week.

then i headed
to school
with a quick stop
at the village...

here are my finds for friday:

1. pyrex bowl

don't worry,
this is not for me...
it's for sooz
to fit into
her other 2 bowls!

2. givenchy scarf

ooh ah
givenchy!
i was attracted
to the design
and bright colors
without knowing
it was fancy schmancy.

3. vintage papers

some papers
for the paper swap!

4. vintage amelia earhart suitcase

i know that
i don't need another
vintage suitcase
but this is an
amelia earhart
suitcase...
amelia is my hero.
these suitcases
are quite rare
and sell for
a bundle on ebay.
this means
that another suitcase
will show up
in the next
give-away™!

5. lovely pillowcase

this pattern
is just like
the skirt
that astrid
gave me.
it will proably end up
as a top
or bag.

that's all from
the village today...
not a bad day...

now it's time
for a relaxing
evening
home alone
with grub.

have a
wonderful weekend.

Aw, Spot looks adorabubble! Can Jack come over and snooze too?!
Great finds... love the suitcase!? What sorts of papers do you collect... I've got a stack of old sheet music if you're interested (too hard for me to play - I'm self-taught - and bought in an op-shop buying frenzy!).

no wonder the saleswoman at mustard seed said "it looks like it was made out of a bed sheet...". well, now you have the pillowcase! :-)

What is up with your village? It has the BEST stuff ever. Seriously! I am very, very jealous :)

OH MY GOD! You are just too too kind! It's so spooky, I finally got your postcard out today, came home from the post office to catch up on my blogs which I have so neglected of late and look what I find! I can tell you the other two bowls get a work out around this place - I love them and they are a perfect size for a self-saucing pudding or a macaroni cheese, a salad...endless possibilities.

By the way - I love watching catepillars too. I so want you to come to tea!!!
