We are painting the living room and dining room and the staircase....It was long overdue!
But first things first! It is fiddlehead season and I couldn't resist. I love the green wild taste. It tastes like the forest.
Fiddleheads are the furled fronds of young ferns.
You need to blanch them then cook them in a skillet with a bit of butter. I added some cayenne and salt and pepper.
It looks even better in a sweet Pyrex casserole!
Even if we had a lot of work to do today we had to run some errands....and lo and behold we came accross a HUGE garage sale, I just had to stop because let's face it I'm a total addict and I haven't found mucho cool stuff in a while!
I was rewarded with this:
A 70's pitcher and a melmacesque(no stamp) cream and sugar set in a lovely shade of salmon. I say melmacesque but it really feels like Melmac.
I also found a red pouch filled with stuff for a quarter. The stuff was porcelain brooches ,a brooch and earrings set- lovely with rhinestones and roseries, quite a few!
Now for lunch I was in a totally vintage,thrifty mood, so I made sandwiches....
We each had one half with pastrami and the other was ham.
They were served with pimento olives and vintage sword cocktail picks. I got a box of those still sealed in my fave church basement for a dime last year. They were made in Korea for F.W. Woolworth. Now i believe the last Woolworth was closed about 25 years ago in Montreal. It was on Ste-Catherine street, when it was a real shopping street, not just shoes and cheap and ridiculously small clothes.
We painted all through the afternoon and I also worked on the BIG 2011 DE-CRAP-A-THON.
More painting for us tomorrow!
Sleep tight and don't let the bedbugs bite! :)
