When Mom and Janet were visiting last week, we went to Crete for a little antique shopping, garden shopping, and lunch at a lovely little tea room. We found lots of goodies (cut glass, pressed glass, brooches, pendants, a Swing-Away ice crusher) at the antique store, and then we went to the little garden shop.
Janet found an adorable distressed metal frog for her garden, and a beautiful lacy plant (I've already forgotten the name of it). In the shop we also saw several apothecary jars. We all came up with ideas for their use, and I, of course, thought of tatting thread. However, I was not willing to pay $85 for an apothecary jar! When we got home, Janet searched the Internet and found them for far less. Before I knew it, she had ordered one for my birthday!
It arrived today, and I am thrilled with it! The size is perfect for my table, and it holds quite a bit of my thread. How can I not be inspired with all those lovely colors right before my eyes? Thank you, Janet!
I'm a retired elementary computer teacher/librarian, mother to four, grandmother to seven. I love lace. I love books. I love to collect. Now that I'm retired, I know I'll never be bored because I have so many interests, as well as the goodies I need to indulge my whims!
