I had plans for today that didn't include Rudy Day. But that doesn't mean I forgot about it!
I went antique shopping with a friend for a few hours in Chester, South Carolina. She had been to an antique shop there in the former Hall Lumber Company building on Hudson St. (for those that want to go) and thought I might like it. Boy, did I! Besides some other non-Christmas items, I found these . . . . .
I found this tablecloth for only $3.00.
I'm sure it isn't an antique but it is pretty. It has a few stains on it. I am thinking of giving it a good tea dye bath and then making it into a tree skirt since I don't have a round table and it is round. Hey, for three bucks . . . . .
I also found these two for only $2.00 each.
The pink ornament is only about 2" in diameter and the turquoise about 3-1/2" long. Maybe not old but the perfect aged patina.
Off to the grocery store because we are out of food. Not because I enjoy going out in the heat in the afternoon with all the screaming elementary kids that just got out of school (we started back already). When I get back I will check out the other blogs, the forum and try to do something Christmas-y before the day is out.
