En Provence - Clue 1

It's that time of year again. Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt clues have begun! Thank you, Bonnie, for your generosity! Each of my posts can be found by my purple grin!

When I saw the luscious color palette, all of which I had in my stash, I figured I needed to participate. 

Want to join in? Go to and select the En Provence tab to find all you need to know. Here's the direct link for clue 1 and the post to see everyone's progress!

When I saw this fabric, which I see as a neural, I thought it would add an interesting look to clue 1.

Featherweight Skill Series - Fashion Aids Kit

You never know what you'll find in an antique shop. There's a favorite one we peruse through 3-4 times a year. It's only about 45 minutes from our house so it's a nice day out. A couple of summers ago, I was hot on the trail for anything with the Singer name on it. I had 2 beautiful Featherweights by then and loved finding foot and accessories for them. If you've read this far, think you know what I mean!

Off we go to the shop on a bright summer morning. We went through the first floor. We went through the second floor. The place is messy. There's an area where things are brought in but not priced yet. Those things are piled in toppling mounds on the tables and floor. It calls you to explore, which is fine with the owner. She'll not say no to a sale opportunity!

I saw a funny looking box in the middle of a stack of random items. The handle was gone. It reminded me of our 1957 portable record player and my curiosity got the best of me. I carefully pulled it out Of the pile, taking care that nothing else fell to the floor.

I couldn't believe what I saw inside when I opened that box!

A day in the life - November 8, 2016

What's this real estate agent up to today? Well, things are getting interesting, I have to admit. Tuesdays are Broker's Open House days and today I went to see one!
