What's my favorite thing about January? Is it "Christmas is over" . . . or resolutions . . . or my anniversary on the 12th (24th this year) . . . or the days are slowly getting longer again? NOPE!
My favorite thing about January is the Primroses in the stores, because they're my favorite flower! One of the local markets had them on sale, 3 for $5, so I bought six. I love the bright, cheery colors and the heart-shaped petals. These will go in the garden this Spring. Some will survive, some won't; doesn't matter - they make me happy in a dismal month!
Speaking of flowers, I picked up these smaller canisters at Walgreen's right before Christmas. They're not Flour and Sugar size, but just right to stash things in.
My mother-in-law gave us some money for our anniversary so, on Mister's day off, we headed to a few thrift shops - where else! One of the items I found was a bud vase (2nd from right, below) in a floral pattern that I collect. Two have the Sadler name on the bottom, a few say Made In England, the ginger jar says nothing. They're a bit on the pricey side (for me), for instance the bud vase was marked down to $10. Normally, I wouldn't pay that but seeing as it was our anniversary money, I splurged.
