Estate sale shopping madness

Granny squares! Shiny Brites! Red! I went crazy at this estate sale!

Luray and I have lots of “junk shopping” experience, but Saturday morning was the first time we’d ever gone to an estate sale. It was impossible to miss: it was held at the business right next door to the Sage “Hint of Spring” show. See what I bought!


Remedy for the winter blahs

The twelve days of Christmas are over. Partying, decorations and celebrating are fond memories now. The days are short, the nights are long. And boy, is it ever cold! It’s enough to give you the blahs.

Fortunately, we’ve got a strategy for winter blahs at This Old Row House: a thick afghan and a great, old movie. Oh, and some fabulously easy microwave caramel popcorn!

You shouldn’t be surprised to learn I’ve got a pile of vintage afghans. In this drafty old house you really can’t have too many.

I love their kaleidoscope of colors on a black background. Each one has a different texture and personality. Right now I’m favoring a heavy wool Granny square afghan that Luray bought for me at Sage Farm in New Hampshire. (Psssst! She’ll have a booth at Sage Farm in February!)

Yep, there’s more!
