So many tiny pieces of fabric.
A funny thing happened when I went back to the junk market last week to pick up the rest of my vintage haul from a recent bargain buying spree. . .

With our bouncing baby lambs, newly hatched chicks, and naturally colored eggs, we were all ready for Easter. With our happy hens now laying over 50 eggs a week, we're eating a lot of eggs.
A hardboiled egg is one of my favorite quick snacks, and having a cheerful red vintage Pyrex bowl of them sitting in the fridge is always a comforting sight. Having a bowl of this brightly colored egg salad sitting in the fridge always feels like a treat.

Lightweight and Lovely to Look At
While Marta Beast was at the dog spa last week (amusing before and after pictures coming soon), I headed over to my favorite junk mall to hunt away the hours. I managed to find all sorts of vintage treasures, including a few pieces of furniture for the new house (which Joe swears we're moving into next fall): two funky, yet surprisingly comfortable old chairs I couldn't resist for $3 apiece; an industrial looking, square metal cabinet with an indestructible formica-type worktop that I know will come in really handy somewhere; a darling little dark wood table with four tiny drawers that might become a nightstand; a rustic wooden footstool that makes me think of those stately old summer camps in the Adirondacks; and a cheerful painted yellow dresser that has glass knobs, a stylish curve to the drawer fronts, and isn't as big as I would have liked but couldn't be passed up for 30 bucks.

Happy Mother's Day
Need a few more hearts for mom?
© FarmgirlFare.com, the rock solid foodie farm blog where I'm amazed (and thrilled) that so many heart shaped rocks keep finding me—sometimes four or five in one day. I'm not picky when adding to my collection, and as you can see, most of my heart rocks aren't perfectly shaped, but like a scrap of paper tacked up on my bulletin board says: Love can't always be perfect—love is just love. I have no idea where I read that quote, but whoever said it was right.
