A Night Out.

Last Friday evening Joy came to pick me up and we went to see the new release, The Time Traveler's Wife. I enjoyed it very much..but IMHO I thought the commercial about the movie gave too much away. Next we went to Joy's house where she made me dinner and then I spent the night with her. We had so much fun and it was SOOOOOO nice to get out!

The next day on our way home we stopped at a couple of my favorite thrift shops and picked up some great bargains. To top off another great day, we went to an auction with my friend Debbie and her husband where I bought this: An antique Cameo pin.

..and this..a ladies Mother of Pearl sterling pen and letter opener in the original box.

..and these! These bowls match the hand painted set of plates my Grandmother collected.

Great to hear you feel well enough to get out and about.
That last picture of the bowl looks real similiar to one I found in an antique store. I love the colors.
