Simple Ramblings From A Prim Cottage

Found it but didn't know I was looking

As most of you know I set up Fleamarket most weekends in the summer.So during the summer I'm out buying for myself and for my stand.We normally sell antiques,prims and old farm stuff.Anyhow I'm out buying normally 4 days a week from spring till fall and I often times forget I buy things and they get stuffed away or I forget I bought them and they are left in the garage and hubby sits them out and sells them.Special things normally come in the house but I stick them either in the loft or in my computer room which also has selling stuff till I get time to figure out what I want to do with it.Sooo where is this going? Well right now I'm working on a couple of swaps and needed my embroidery floss.I knew it was in a bag tied shut so I started opening bags and look what I found..... Oh my he is such a sweetie.Old mohair bear.I forgot all about him till I found him and am so happy he was found! I do this all the time the forgetting what I bought but this was such a wonderful find as he was ment for me when I bought him.....and yes I found the thread too.LoL..
Well I'm sure you all are tired of the snow pics but we got our first "real" snow for the year.I loved it and enjoyed a day of crafting and relaxing.....I LOVE snow as long as I can stay nestled at home....Side of house...
From my front door.....
