French table linen

I'm back! It was nice to have a bit of time off.

I spent a few days at the beach with my sister and even though the weather was cold, that didn't stop us from antiquing and thrifting. I found this lovely French tablecloth for only $8.00,

and napkins $2.00 each,

at this wonderful little thrift shop (below),

and it was packed with all kinds of goodies. I brought quite a few things home with me. This shop was in Carolina Beach, but we stayed at Shell Island in Wrightsville Beach, NC.

Aside from the shopping we also enjoyed

the ocean, the sunrise and sunsets,

and just hanging out and having fun.

And one of my most favorite things was watching the pelicans fly past our balcony early in the morning.

I'll be around to visit all of you soon.

I missed you!

Hi Donna,

I stayed at Carolina Beach a couple of years ago...and I couldn't get used to that sulpher water smell. Ugh!

Will we be seeing pictures of Otis and Rile on the beach? :-)
