Remember my friend Barbara of Ephemera that I wrote about here and here? Well, last week she sent me these pictures of her van with the email heading of HOLY!! Just look at the haul of textiles that she picked up last week! Before she offers the quilts, chenilles and bark cloth pieces out for sale she washes and repairs each one - that is a LOT of heavy work; those babies get heavy when they're wet. Plus some need ironing and they all need folding. I sure hope she never challenges me to an arm-wrestling match.

I love going for walks at this time of year when the leaves are golden and they snap and crackle when you walk through them.
"The woods are full of Fairies;
The Sea is full of fish;
The trees are full of golden leaves;
Let's make an Autumn wish."
Our local health food store has started to carry milk and cream in glass bottles. We drink too much milk to be able to always buy our milk this way but it sure feels old-fashioned and homey to use these glass bottles. The cream is delicious with no preservatives of any kind. Sometimes I pour milk from our cardboard container into this milk bottle just so I can get to pour milk from it.
