My mission, at the mission, was to get some scrap towels for cleaning walls, baseboards, etc. in preparation for selling my house. Sadly, the towel selection was lacking. I did get a few small hand towels/dish towels. But I scored major when it occurred to me that baby receiving blankets could also be used just as effectively for the job. I brought them home for the approval of Paige, my housekeeper/moving consultant and she immediately declared them perfect for the purpose. Yay!
Pfaltzgraff Brown Drip! Hard to believe I used to have the better part of an entire set of that stuff. It is apparently quite collectible. I think I gave most of mine away because I thought it was ugly. I'm pretty sure my former mother-in-law still has an entire collection. In the second photo I just love the dozen bowling balls. How fun! Wouldn't they make an awesome display piece in a courtyard or patio. I have no idea what you could do with a dozen bowling balls, but I would love to incorporate them into my decorating scheme somehow. Loads of kitschy fifties fun. Speaking of that, I think my "thing" is going to be flamingos. My bestie collects ladybugs. I've always wanted to collect something, but have never found the thing that felt right. I've flirted with dolphins, elephants, frogs, pigs, and even dragonflies. None of them has ever felt right. I've stayed away from flamingos because in general I don't like birds. But what's not to like? I will continue to ponder the merits of flamingos as a collectible. I know for sure it would be a fun bathroom theme.

And finally, today's photos of the boo.
Boo was NOT interested in waking up this morning!
Really, I don't blame him.
update: I got an email from his teacher saying that despite his unhappy start to his day he was doing okay. Of course, the fire drill 10 minutes after the start of the school day didn't improve his mood, but otherwise he seemed tolerant. Yay!
