Last weekend, Dave and I had to take a trip to Sarnia. As usual, I was driving. I think that’s just so Dave can watch the world go by and shout “Stop, turn around, there’s a used store over there we have to check out!!!”
We were on a mission to Home Depot, and had already been on the road running errands for most of the morning, so I really wasn’t in the mood to stop. But I did.
I didn’t take a lot of pictures.
But this picture gives you an idea. Its one of those cavernous labyrinthine “vintage” stores that’s been there for ages, and the owner just keeps jamming more and more things in. Dave wandered off and looked at the multitude of dusty electronics and car parts, while I browsed through the trove of glassware
I wasn’t really looking for anything particular, and I didn’t really expect to find anything. But then I did. And then another, and then another.
And apparently now I’m a pigeon fancier! As you can guess, these will end up somewhere in the garden this spring, filled with plants. The middle one needs some new rope, but he’s actually a hanging planter (you can see the holes for the rope).
Eventually we did make it to Home Depot. Dave got a pile of stuff to put a new faucet in my bathroom (nothing fancy, the old one was just so calcified, you could barely get water out of it.) And I found some fantastic seagreass baskets on sale!
I bought two of them, and I think at least one of them will hang out by my recliner to help keep my knititng WIPs a little more tidy.
And I also got seed….
Lots and lots of seed!!!! But more on that another day. It’s still too early to get too excited about planting – even planting indoors!
