Time Flies

Somehow the week got away from me. That tends to happen sometimes. I'll be like oh it's Monday then it's like "oh crap it's Friday." It tends to happen when I'm not really doing much with my week. When I was working six days a week the week would just drag on. I mean D-R-A-G on. I could wait to see my hubby on the weekends. It was the only thing that made my week worthwhile.
My in-laws will be here a week from today. I have been trying to get the house in order. There's really not all that much to do but we still need to clean the hobby room. The Husband started to clean it. The problem is that it stayed started. He procrastinates like nobody's business. I've been trying to get him to get some shelves in that room so he can put all of his figures up and out of boxes. I've been trying to get my things set up and organized but I can't since his stuff is all over the place.
My mom sent me a ton of yarn. I mean like two big boxes full of all of her yarn. She's been cleaning up her room and wanted to get rid of a ton of stuff. It's a bunch of really soft yarn. Like for baby blankets and stuff. I've been using the soft yarn to make the snoods. They hang very well. I had to go to Joann's to buy some elastic. They didn't have much in the way of selection either.

I started a blouse last week. It's black with a pink collar. I have to attach the sleeves and buttons. I really want to make a couple of dresses for Memorial Day weekend. I hope I can get it done by Thursday. Speaking of making things, I got bored mid-week and felt like doing something with my hands. I'd had this transfer pattern for a while. I'd bought it some time around when I got married. I enjoy embroidery and cross stitching a lot. It was once of the first thing my mom taught me.

Now that I've made this kitchen towels I want to buy a cat clock like the this one. I've always liked them but haven't been big on clocks until we had our own place.

I added another Stratton compact to my collection. This one is for loose powder with a divider to keep it separate from the powder puff.

I leave you with a few pics that I've taken throughout the week. I hope you enjoy it.

    1. Gracias. The earrings are swallows. They seem to be either 1940s or 1950s moon glow Lucite. I got them for $3.50! It was such a great deal.
      I love my cat tattoo. I got it last July. I had been wanting a Lucky Cat tattoo for a long time but didn't like any of the pics I found. It cost me a pretty penny but it was worth it.

  5. What a marvelous vintage powder compact. The elegant blue and white palette reminds me of Wedgwood china, and is so charmingly pretty.

    Thank you very much for your comment on my real world gals of the 1940s post, I really appreciate it and hope you're having a marvelous week, sweet lady.
