I'm also thankful that God kept our son and his family safe. They live very near Atlantic City, and were without power from 8:30 last night to 6:30 this morning. Thankfully, they had no damage to their home.
My three-year-old grandson was a bit concerned when the lights went out, but he got his very own flashlight to play with and was fine with that. The baby slept through it all, of course.
Here are a couple of things I didn't get to show you on my last post. All of these are from local antique malls.
I couldn't pass up this Avon Scenes Palissy creamer. It's from the same shop where I got the Mason's ming jar.
It's holding sweetgum balls from my friend's yard.
I have a thing for sweetgum balls and pinecones...go figure.
An English pudding mold...I think this is from the 1930s.
...and an antler.
Behind it is a framed print I got at a yard sale a couple of weeks ago for $1.50.
They're on one of the shelves in my secretary. I'll show you the secretary another time... but now I'd like to show you the vintage game board I found.
The tag on it said it's a skee ball game board. I've never played skee ball, but I like its vintage.
I bought some wooden balls at Michael's so we can play. I rubbed the balls with lemon oil, hoping they'll darken to look more vintage...maybe another coat? What do ya think?
I set some games up on the coffee table and a couple of non-healthy snacks. Shame on me. :)
Football season has started, and I'm stocking up...Go Dawgs!
I won't be able to join in all the fun parties this week, because I'm taking a short, fun bloggy break.
Tell you all about it on my next post.
Thanks for stopping by.
