I shouldn't have left the house so soon after getting sick. But the day was so sunny! And how could I miss a neighborhood yard sale?
It was worth the mad dash back home. After reading Christy's idea for a family mailbox, I casually watched for something similar. As a child, Tasha Tudor's sparrow post illustrations enchanted me. A dollar is a lot for something so dented, but this decoupaged mail sorter was too sweet to leave. I paid $3 for everything, including this twiggy basket, a Tupperware canister full of baby spoons, a giant roll of gingham ribbon, floral tape, a box of cards and a Sierra Club datebook.
I also bought this robin's egg blue nightgown for only a quarter.
