First off Happy Halloween. Hope you have a safe, spooky celebration.
Last weekend while the power was out I finished the binding on my Blue Bird of Happiness quilt. I love how the red binding looks on it. I didn’t quite have enough of the plaid I was using so I added a little couple of strips of a cute red floral. I wish I had offset them a little more but other than that I just love this quilt. I’m linking up with Sarah to celebrate.
DD and I have recently discovered Flea Market Flip. This has inspired us to hit the local thrift stores. This last weekend we found these treasures. A wonderful painting. I just love all the color.
And this bamboo bowl and teal pot that I put a plant a friend had given me. The plant get tiny orange flowers on it. You can see a few in the lower left hand corner. I think the orange blooms with the teal will be fabulous.
Can’t wait to see what we find this weekend.

I LOVE that happy quilt, Emily!!!
The Bluebird wall hanging is so creative, Emily! The scrappy background with the more intense colors for the flowers works so well.
I love the Bluebird quilt. Really nice with the scrappy low volume background. Good find on the painting, have fun shopping!
Your bluebird quilt makes me smile. Love what you found – it's fun to go to flea markets. I invite you to share your eye candy on Hexie Weekend so others can see that happy quilt too.
I've never seen a Jade Plant bloom before. How old is that plant? Is it in that pot for a long time? Did you water it lots or leave it dry for a long time? I'm wondering how to get mine to bloom.
What a wonderful little quilt, Em! I just love it! And congrats on all the fun thrift shop finds – I wish I had time to do that! Whoop whoop!!
The bird centres of the flowers say it.
This turned out so great.
