Hello Blogland!! Hope everyone is having a great weekend!Ours, unfortunately started off on a sad note. We had to have our 17-year-old cat, Molly, put to sleep Saturday morning. It is somewhat ironic as I had just introduced the fur-queens to y’all.
She had been “going down” for some time-losing weight, stiffness, bathroom issues. We noticed Friday evening as she tried to follow us around the yard that she wasn’t doing her usual “chatting” with us but sounded like she was in pain as she walked. When I picked her (she never liked being held but would sit on your lap) I noticed a lump on her side that wasn’t there a few days ago. Phone call to the vet and we took her in Saturday morning. He recommended that, at her age and with her symptoms, it would be best to let her go. She was giving everyone her head-butts of love even though it was obvious she was in pain. A love-bug until the end.
After such a miserable start to the day, the hubster and I went to the Wolfsville Picnic, held by the church he grew up in on the picnic grounds. They’ve been having these for close to a hundred years. Good food, rummage sale table and bluegrass music. Believe me you haven’t LIVED until you’ve heard the bluegrass version of 3 Dog Night’s Joy to the world(Jeremiah was a bullfrog).
It tends to be a bit of an older crowd there. I think the amazing Vix would have been a SENSATION in her festival clothes!!
Here’s a picture of the most adorable couple, Miss Paige and Mr. Everett, that we ate lunch with. She told me they were both on the other side of 90!!! They started attending these picnics as children and have been regular all the years they’ve been married and in the area. They grew up with the hubster’s grandfather. How cute is it they coordinated their outfits????
The rummage sale table was DISMAL until I spied a box full of awesome!! It was filled with vintage patterns and I got them all for $1!!! I was Helga-squeeing like a fool!!!The 70’s era ones will be making their way to the 70’s goddess Vix and I am going to keep the older ones.
The older patterns are from the 30’s-50’s. The wedding dress looks to be from around 1940.
My outfit today is comprosed of stuff I’ve worn before!! I am wearing one of MeganMae’s adorable buttonflowers!! I’m getting kind of bored with my summer clothes now and I can’t wait for Fall!!
I’m going to be starting a “MakeOver Monday” post. I thrift all sorts of stuff beyond clothes and I’ll sharing how a make them over. I’ve decorated most of our home this way!!
