Just a Few Things

Things are crazy. I guess I say that a lot.
We moved some items from the library into a little room with a couple of laptops, and we're trying to have a little something open for the public. It may be a short time or a long time before things get back to normal, and I can't wait for that to happen. In the meantime, we're trying to make it work.
I've been trying to clean the house, and fix a lot of things, and decorate my pop's house for xmas. I'm sort of a grinch, but I'm trying to keep a happy face, because it means so much to him. I did stop for a couple of things yesterday, at the special Only0Open On Sunday Store:
I can never resist a tin. I love the graphics on this, and it's pretty clean inside!

A USA planter, cabbage-design. I never met a planter I didn't like!

A California pottery bowl, I have to look up more about it.

And these, Santa pants! They're about the size of a stocking. One of my best friends lost all of her awesome collectibles in the flood. I'm giving her this, which is spectacular, with a set of tiny doll-size kitchen cannisters that I got from Ebay, and a voucher for an out-of-town antiquing trip!
It's been a weekend of good news and bad news, and I'm hoping the week gets a little better for everyone.

Great finds - especially that planter. I, too, am a sucker for vintage pottery planters...and if they're green, I'm a lost cause! :)

Love that bowl and of course, the planter, I have many like it in my ridiculous planter collection :)
