A great Saturday.....

DH and I got up early this morning, set off to pick up my sister and we all went down to Soulard Market. Soulard is an open-air market that has been in St Louis since forever... 2 long aisles of fresh veggies, fruit, home baked goods and even a small pet shop. Today we got a great surprise as we pulled through looking for a parking spot. (and we found a great one in the shade!) There was a flea market/antique market/junk sale in the park. My sister is buying a condo and was in the market for some cool stuff, so we looked around. She found a great bench for her bedroom and a wrought iron mirror for her entryway. The bench is all wood and she will paint it and cover the cushions. We bought some great veggies and on the way home, DH stopped at the drapery discount store so we could look around. She found some great green/cream toile to cover the cushions and we hope there is enough to make a couple of pillows for her bed. i found some remnants for purses.

Of course, then I had to come home and blanch the green beans, carrots and asparagus. They are all safe in the freezer now...

Dh started his famous Spaghetti sauce for my birthday dinner tomorrow. It was supposed to be a surprise, but someone spilled the beans... story tomorrow....

Happy Sewing,
Nancy
