We spent this weekend searching for things and among what we found was this nicely sized and perfectly clean crock pot from Goodwill for $5! It’s only missing a dial for the handle. Right now it’s cooking Overnight Oatmeal. (I was sort of afraid to leave an unfamiliar appliance on overnight, so I’m technically cooking Daytime Oatmeal, for dinner.)
I did not find any Riedel-quality stemware at Goodwill this time around, I think this will particular search will quickly become a new obsession.
We also found some nice shrubs to plant in front of our house and got to peek at lots of deck planter options (we’ve decided to, sigh, make our own which means there will be no plants waving merrily in the breeze next weekend). We went to two nurseries this weekend, Swanson’s Nursery where I found this fairy door and Rosso’s Nursery in Georgetown (thanks for the tip Stef!). Rosso’s had lots of plants I’ll go back for, but when it came to looking for something specific I deeply appreciated all the information that Swanson’s includes with their plants as I have absolutely no idea what I’m doing. I picked up a bunch of the how-to fliers as well, so hopefully our plants have a chance at survival.
