The fibre arts show was great, and I came home with a hand woven scarf and another pair of alpaca socks (The pair I bought last year were ace, so I was happy to get more). Danny met up with his elderly friend and put a smile on his face when he asked if he'd play some harmonica.
We swung by Hand-Me-Ups to donate two winter coats Danny outgrew, and I scored a vintage wool coat for $4.00. I thought that was a good deal until I stopped at Fairytale Costumes and found another for $3.00. It was a great day for coats! In the past few weeks I've acquired several vintage coats. I've had good luck washing them on the gentle cycle in the machine, and then drip drying. These will need a pressing, and a few hems need tacking up, but thus far I'm pleased with how they've come clean.
The green coat, and rayon dress looked terrible when I bought them, but a good wash and a bit of mending transformed them into something wearable.

You know, I hate that. You're on an an alien craft waiting to get probed, and then they tell you the wait is going to be over an hour. You know their magazines in the waiting room all suck too.
Hmm, that seems overpriced for a tin of soup...I'm going to see the dragons instead.
Hope your weekend is treating you well, even if it refuses to snow.
