My Purchase

I must apologize for yesterday’s tease about what I bought at the antique mall Sunday.

The apology isn’t necessarily for teasing, but rather for leading anyone to think that I made a substantial purchase.

In fact, I bought something small and inexpensive: this little woven “mat”. It is, I’m sure, a reproduction of cloth from colonial times.

You see, for Christmas, Marshall gave me this charming little drying/display rack. Each of the “arms” opens out like the one shown.

He had originally thought I might use it in the laundry room, but I like it better in the guest bath, and I needed something to hang on one of the arms. I think the fabric coordinates nicely with the navy in the patchwork wallpaper border.

For those of you who, like me, love to browse in antique/thrift shops, I’m sure you agree that it isn’t necessarily how much you spend or even IF you buy anything on those trips.   Just looking is fun….and finding a treasure, however inconsequential, is a bonus.
