Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

Yard Sale ing in Sunny California

One of the things I love about California, besides wearing flip flops year round and always finding something blooming in your garden, is yard sale season never ends. So when I was out visiting last week we decided to do a little shopping. First we had to buy some supplies, you know so we could keep our strength up....


When we were properly nourished, off we went.
We found a few things. Some transferware plates in black and white,
A big cake plate dome... A cute little tea towel. Does anyone know what fabric line this is? I love this fabric and need some more.

A very fun day with our little sweet peas and their mommy.

California has the best weather for getting out to yard sales, doesn't it? I don't know what fabric that is, but it looks old. Could it be like the old flour sack material?
I like the plates you found.

HI~ first just wanted to say I love your blog! It is such fun to read! The tea towel looks like one I have that is from the martha stewart line from Kmart. I think i purchased this about 5-6 years ago. they came in a set of 3, one the color you have, a yellow and a darker blue all the same pattern. Hope that helps. Maybe you can find more on ebay???
