A Lovely Day......
Lucky me! I had the loveliest Mother's Day! My sweet little guys gave me the cutest cards, homemade presents and my favorite candy! Then my sweet husband took me to one of my favorite places- the antique mall, of course! This is what I found.....An adorable Easter booklet! It tells the cutest story of a ducky who lived in Easterland. He was sad because he wanted to dress up for Easter, but had nothing to wear. So the other animals in Easterland help him out- each giving him something to wear. I will share more of this book another time. It's just too cute!I found some pretty aqua blue buttons for crafting. A girl can't have too many vintage buttons! And my favorite find of all... this amazing vintage quilt! I adore the colors, the vintage prints, and how it's faded to such a soft look!
And can you believe it was only $20!? Yes, it true! It does have a few small spots that are coming apart, but for the most part it's in great condition and not a single stain. Here is the yummy fabric on the backside.
My four handsome guys... adoring me, showering me with candy, hugs and kisses and taking me antique shopping! It doesn't get better than that! The only way to make it better is if I could have spent it with my sweet mama! Miss and love you, Mama!!! I found a few more things, too, but I'll save those for my next post. What did you do for Mother's Day? Michelle xoxo

Hi sweet Michelle,
I am so happy you had a wonderful Mother's Day with your sweet men!
Oh, what fun, that is just where I would want to go too… the antique store! I love the sweet Ducky book and look forward to hearing more of the story. Sweet books like that just make you so happy! The vintage aqua buttons are so pretty and the vintage quilt is beautiful!!! I love the colors and the fabric on the back is lovely! A great price too! So happy you had a good day and found things you love. Can't wait to see your other pretties! Love, Paula

It sounds like you have a great Mother's Day. It sounds like your husband knows what you like the most. That is my kind of celebration, if it doesn't include some kind of junking I do not want to do it. Is your fav mall the one in Roundrock? I think I recognize it from some of the photos in your previous posts. You are lucky though, I never find your kind of prices. I do buy there for personal use, nothing for resale, too expensive. I love it anyway. Blessings, Marta.

I love your quilt! What a great find! I have a link on my blog from an earlier post this week that talks about Vintage Fabric Soak. It's remarkable at getting old stains out of vintage quilts. Love your blog!
