We also went to the flea market. There were some great things there today. Wanna see what we found this week?This opens up and holds a tea light candle. I'm planning to hang it out of the big maple tree in the back yard. This is a vintage cocktail shaker for the bar. The white spot is just the flash from my camera, the shaker is in perfect condition. I've seen these going for $20 and up, but we got it for $5. It's so retro, I love it! Do you know what this is? It's a straw dispenser like they used to have in diners and ice cream shops. When you pull up on the handle, the straws will fan out so you can choose one. As soon as it's washed, it will be filled with colorful straws.
And these are my Mothers Day gifts from Mr. Willoughby. A gorgeous honeysuckle, a clematis, and a hydrangea (my favorite!) to plant in the yard. We're expecting frost tonight, so they won't be planted for another day or two.
Last but not least is the hanging basket we got for my Mom.
It looks so nice hanging in one of my gardens that I'd like to keep it for myself. I won't do that, but I might have to go back and get a few for our house.
After the flea market, Mr. Willoughby and the kids made brunch. They made biscuits and gravy, which is a favorite that we rarely have at home, but enjoy on vacation in North Carolina. Best of all, I didn't have to do any of the clean up!
Happy Mothers Day!
