What a Wonderful Weekend

Well, it was a wonderful weekend on all accounts. The weather was unseasonably warm, the sun gentle and bright, the wind smooth and crisp. It was the perfect weekend.

Saturday, Scott and I helped, along with a few members of our block club, with the Earth Day efforts of the Niagara Beautification Commission and the City of Niagara Falls, NY in their "Clean up Niagara" event. Although picking up trash at 8:30 in the morning isn't my idea of fun, the weather was so nice, and the company was so great - that I toddled along for almost 3-hours before breaking to pick up Scott's anniversary present. Now, I will take pictures of this eventually, but it's still rolled up waiting for the restorer to look at it. Stay tuned for more.

Sunday we went to brunch at our favorite place, the Roycroft Inn, in East Aurora, NY then to the 2009 Buffalo Junior League Showhouse. Great fun. Then we ended up at Pottery Barn, where a $349 lamp was soon to be mine - until I thought, this won't work! Scott was a little disappointed that I didn't get my anniversary gift as he had planned, but in the end, it all worked out for the best. Why?

We're going to Brimfield! That's right, Brimfield/Sturbridge, MA at the Brimfield Antique Show. Over 5,000 vendors pull out their best goods, in what is a weeklong shopping extraveganza. I can't wait to bring you all along for that! So just an update today - pictures and projects scheduled for later in the week!
