Saturday morning, while on my way to our local Farmer's Market, I happened upon several yard sales which yielded a surprising array of wonderfulness. It was like hitting the yard sale jackpot. First up, I nabbed not one, not two, but THREE absolutely lovely little pre-loved ponies (ok, technically one of them is a unicorn -- so much the better!). Jackson named his Fred and Walker took the unicorn and named it Apple. Much fun was had galloping around the back yard for the rest of the morning.
Other items scored: an absolutely darling antique kid-sized table and chairs, a gorgeous little rocking chair painted the most perfect color of Tiffany blue, a hammock with metal stand, and a pile of classic children's books, including some of my all-time favorites (A Little Princess, My Father's Dragon, The Rats of NIMH, and Redwall, to name a few). All the stuff was dirt cheap. The books were FREE!!!
The next day, I was treated to breakfast in bed and presented with Mother's Day cards and a Sunday New York Times. Heaven. While I luxuriated, I got a phone call from my mom (who is visiting Italy right now). It was so nice to hear her voice and catch up a bit, and hear about her travels.a Van Gogh painting.
All in all, it was pretty perfect weekend! How did you spend your Mother's Day?
