This 'n That

Well here it is Thursday, practically the weekend, yay! I have some great plans for Saturday, which include going to a stained glass exhibit, buying some art supplies, hitting a favorite antique mall and working on etsy goodies! I had to post a picture of the pansies and violas I found at Home Depot. I just love those velvety little flowers! I remember when I was little, grandma had white, yellow and purple violets growing in huge bunches in her back yard. Ever since then, one of my favorite flowers has been violets and anything resembling them. My mother gave me the little cherub vase and I keep it on my kitchen window sill and always have little flowers of some kind tucked inside, even if they have to be silk in the winter. My thoughts are rambling today, I cant keep my mind on one subject long enough to complete a thought. So much to do and so much fun to look forward to, I can't wait to share it all with you! I hope everyone has a beautiful weekend! I'll see you back here soon:>)

Hi Kathy,

I was trying to find one of your favorite thrifting places...Thrift Mart and couldn't find it anywhere in Ann Arbor listings on the internet...could you give me the location? You said it was such a fabulous place so it makes me want to go. Thank you!

Kindredly, Lynne Laura
