An Eventful Weekend!

Hello all!

I had a terrific weekend! How about you? It was eventful and relaxing (those two adjectives in a sentence, together?)!

I needed a much deserved break from sewing, but my creative side will not let me be idle. So, I knitted washcloths for my family. 100% cotton fiber. So soft and they suds-up really well!

My daughter was invited to a birthday bash and a sleepover with her friend Molly. Upon Alexis' return on Sunday morn, she presented a pretty little bottle of raw honey from Molly's aunt. Mmmmm....good! Ruby's Amber Honey. She's a beekeeper. I'm intrigued! And, would love to spend a day with her, while she does, what she does.

Last, but not the least, my husband has been raving about a shop/boutique that he's driven by. "This shop is so YOU, and I KNOW you will love it", he says. So on his day off, while we were driving about, he surprised me and drove me to this lovely shop, Orlando Vintage in Winter Park, Florida. Vintage fashions, shoes, swimsuits, luggage, costumes, jewelry, and more! From 1890's to 1980's. He was right, I LOVED it!

I normally carry my camera with me, 'just in case'. I was in such awe of this shop and 'absorbing' it all, I did not take a single photo. If you live near or visiting the Orlando area, you have to stop by! However, I managed to gather my wits and had to have a hatbox from a company in Chicago (my hometown). I was familiar with the name on the box because of childhood memories of either grandparents or, someone in the family having a similar box. So, my wonderful husband purchased the hat box!

This weekend was a treat and very eventful!

Can't wait to see what adventures are in store for this week!

Have a Fabulous Week!

That store looks WONDERFUL! I'd love to stop there some day! I didn't know your home town was Chicago. That's where I live. The hat box is really awesome. I wonder what is currently at the Lake Street address on the hat box. I'll try to stop by there and take a photo for you! I live nearby it. :)
