Many thanks to everyone who left me get-well wishes -- reading all your comments really cheered me up. I'm on antibiotics for the pink eye, and the sore throat and ear aches are receding, leaving just a nasty, tickly cough, which is keeping me up half the night. And a general malaise. But I think that may be more a symptom of the weather and the end of the holidays. I need to get out in the sunshine, but right now I feel as though I could sleep through the entire winter.
So I'm going to be brief today, and just leave you with a few pictures of some things I got at the thrift store last week, before the head cold from hell struck. I just couldn't resist the two small handpainted bird plates pictured above. They even came with the plate hangers already attached -- perfect for the kitchen.
Here are two tarnished candlesticks, currently joining the fun on the dining room table, which still has the centerpiece from Christmas day. I've been feeling so lousy that I haven't taken down any of the Christmas decorations yet. Hopefully today I'll get a start on that.
Finally, a small chintz butter pat plate, and a piece of Clarice Cliff transferware. You had to know I couldn't resist that.
Hope you all have a great week. I've missed so many of your posts; I've got a lot of catching up to do. But right now, I'm going to take a nap! :)
