Memorial day steals

Saturday we decided to take the long way up to visit Taunton and came across a neighborhood yard sale. We only stopped at one house that looked promising and the few finds were fab.

This book:
which was perfect because we were on the way to my sister-in-law's nursing school graduation picnic. It was inscribed Norwood Hospital and the owner's name. It was a 1920 edition. And the cute over sized handmade quilted hot pad behind it. (How many adjectives can I put in one sentence for one little hotpad, right?)

And this sweet little apron.

keyword: little. It's not exactly children's sized, but made for a woman smaller than me for sure. A couple stitches came out in the wash but were a breeze to fix.

Adorable detail, bad lighting:

Now I just have to figure out what I'm going to do with it. I kind of like it hanging on the headboard just like this.

Interesting finds! I think the apron is really pretty, fresh and summery!
