I grew up with brothers, so having acquired sisters-in-law (yes, multiple) when I married my husband was a strange, new, and wonderful treat. My sister-in-law, Jacqui, and I are nearly the same age and we planned a “girl time” weekend and it is nearly over. Tomorrow I am heading home. We have done all the girl things that we don’t usually do when there are boys around… manicures, shopping, lots of ice cream eating, and more shopping. I am (cough) 40-ish (cough) and I got my first ever French Manicure. In a few more years I’m going to quit admitting my age. And Jacqui and I are contemplating a girls only trip to New York to mark our monumental birthdays.
The whole weekend was planned around The Vintage Barn antique show. There is booth upon booth of vintage and crafty things. It’s always inspiring! I think I bought too many old suitcases. The ones I do have at home already store my yarn stash. One of them needs to be replaced and then I couldn’t resist picking up another one.
The last time Jacqui and I went to The Vintage Barn show I brought home some old draperies. I really have been meaning to make them into pillows. Really I have! Maybe the ones above will inspire me to finally get going. Me? A procrastinator? Hmpf.
