A day of thrifting, surprise meetings and good food

What a lovely Port A and the kids went to the aquarium. So I was on my own. With the South Jetty classifieds in hand, I took off for some garage sales and thrift stores. First one I stopped at was in the Lost Colony subdivision and I found some beautiful textiles...

A quilt piece, table topper and napkins, tea towel, and two darling mini stockings made out of quilts.
Then I headed back into town to one of the churches...they have a great thrift shop. Found a bit of bright fabric, DVD and VHS to leave here for the kids, some old candlesticks to craft with, a bag of yarn for 2 dollars. Heck there was alpaca in there... And somebodies cut knit and crocheted dishcloths.

Last stop I didn't find anything to purchase but ran into an old Hondo buddy Dana Pope. It was so good to see her and visit with her. What a nice surprise. Then before heading home I stopped at the Phoenix for lunch. It has been a long time since I've been and I wasn't disappointed! Yummy crab cake with aoli, broccoli and rice. Had creme brûlée for desert. Heaven.

That all sounds like so much fun. Good score on the handwork pieces and the quilt top! I have collected doilies for years and am partial to those that are hand embroidered in bright colors. Yummy lunch, too.
