field trip: the cottage

Alfredo and I went on a bit of a field trip today to see our friends at the cottage in Leesburg. And just look at what I found there. A real vintage grocery cart.

What am I going to do with a real vintage grocery cart? I'm not sure. But here are some ideas: a laundry basket for Alfredo, a place to put toys or balls, a place to put the project du jour, or I could fill it with ribbons and use it in my craft room. I'm not sure yet. But I bet a certain little boy will think it's a toy for him and take it over.

Just in case you are itching for one too, they do have a couple more.

Where's the baby's seat? And the cup holder for your latte? Ah, how times change. Great ideas, now I need another vessel to collect toys and craft bits. :)

A few months ago I found an amazing vintage red wagon- wonderful and chippy! I had visions of filling it with flowers in the yard- I could just see it! But then my seven year old found it and it became a wagon for teddy- I have to admit she looked adorable playing with it. It'll be mine again some day, much like your wagon. Hope Alfredo enjoys it!

You could store fabric in there and park it next to your sewing machine. Could be cute.

Oh, I think you needed that! (Really!)

Amy, guess where I am? At Saint John's Abbey in Collegeville, MN. This is where they created the St. John's bible! it is a beautiful abbey and I am overlooking the lake...and they have internet connection! Jud is doing a retreat here so Kat and I are attending.

Hugs to you and your adorable Alfredo,

I know this is kinda random but I regularly check your blog and you inspired me to a bit of freestyle last night. I just recently started to do my own version of 39 squares but on a piece of felt. This is the result of one, it's still not done but I ran out of thread. :]

Lots of love to you and your family.

My sister lives in Leesburg! We must visit The Cottage.

I love the cart!

I love your cart... but it was the rug on the floor that caught my attention. Can you tell me more about it?
