Weekend Tidbits

Hello, and I hope you are having a pleasant weekend.  I think I am getting yet another cold…but I do hope I am wrong.  Other than that, I’ve had a very nice weekend. Got to see two of my three grandchildren, had some delicious homemade pierogies (bought them at a festival), and Rick stopped at the Good Will store, for me, last night. I also have a new doily to share with you.  So, let’s get started, shall we?

First up…the doily.  It’s one where the pattern is several rows, and then I add on to it however I’d like.  I’m really having fun doing this!


Now for my GW finds.  If you watch QVC, especially the cooking segments, you will recognize this stoneware!  I was surprised to find this in a GW store, but I snatched it right up. I had never bought any before because it is a bit more than my budget allows…but at the GW the larger dish was $4, and the smaller was $2.



Lately, I’ve been obsessed with cute little bunnies, and I found this cutie for 99 cents.


I got this little cup to use as a vase.


I thought this was pretty with the flowers on it.  Rick pointed out that he thinks it is actually an ashtray.  I told him I don’t really care, I bought it because I like the floral design. I also bought a pretty pillowcase, but it’s in the wash, so I don’t have a picture of it yet.


Last, but certainly not least, is this Donald Duck hat I made for my grandson, Lawson.  His mommy wanted it for Halloween, so I wanted to get one made and make sure it fits. If not, I’d have made another, but luckily this one seems to fit just fine. Whew!  I didn’t use a pattern for it, but I did find some pictures of Donald hats online, and used them as my guide.  I think Lawson likes his hat! Yay!!!


That’s all for now, folks.  Thanks for stopping by.  I truly appreciate it!


  1. Oh that Duck hat is adorable! Good job! Your doily is amazing too.. I need to start one soon. Lucky you to find those neat ceramic baking pans.. gorgeous! And what a bargain! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  2. Hi Rita, your doily is pretty and your finds are fabulous! You made a very cute Donald Duck hat and that too made it without any pattern . It's perfect:)

  3. Love your new doily Rita - it's beautiful. Great finds at the Goodwill. Your grandson Lawson is adorable - I can tell he loves his new hat. :)
