Antique shopping and more

On Saturday the DH and I went out for lunch and then hit a couple of Antique shops. Here are my finds. I bought an old wrought iron--iron, two thread/yarn spools, a flower frog, an old hand forged scissors, some black heart valentine trim, buttons, a bone dish and box of DMC thread. It looks like it was made for traveling emergencies. Not sure how old it is but looks like it could be from the sixties.
Then I bought this Lizzie Kate scissors kit with Jill last Wednesday and got it stitched up and did the finishing last night. I think it turned out pretty cute.

I entered a drawing last month on Berit's blog for this biscornu and I was the lucky winner. It is a wonderful biscornu. I just love it. Thank you Berit. I am sorry I didn't get it posted earlier.
I stitched this pyn pillow for Edgar as a little Thank you for being an angel stitcher for my for my birthday a year ago. It is Cranberry Deer Pinkeep by Beehive Needleworks. I knew that Edgar liked deers and thought this was perfect for him. I have stitched this twice now and think I will do one for myself.

I also sent off a summer exchange for the Friends Stitching Through the Seasons blog. My exchange went to Melissa of the Daily Mel. Now with that being said, I forgot to take a picture of the exchange, so you will have to visit Melissa's blog if you want to see it.

Now I think I have gotten somewhat caught up on blogging. I seem to have a hard time with getting my blogging done in a timely fashion. I am hoping to change that.
Thanks for stopping by and I wish everyone Happy Stitching.

Aw; please don't apologize! I'm just glad you got it safely and are enjoying it (I had something go missing recently. :().

Love the kidney dish (need to keep my eyes peeled for one of those) and other finds! :D

Joan: I just love buttons, the old ones have such character, I collect ric rac the old stuff not the new stuff.
I visited your blog and eyed the scissors I just love them.
I like your husband he seems to be a man like mine very generous.
Happy Stitching.
