Just got back from VT, bit of a hectic week.
For starters, my dad's whole side of the family was there. In one house. That's 26 people, coming and going, eating together, living together, traveling together, and shopping together for a week. Bit stressful, as my dad's grumpy side kicked in quite a bit. (I swear, he, his twin, and my grandpa are the same person.)
The upside of staying in VT is that there is an abundance of vintage, antique, and thrift stores scattered about. One place that my grandma took my cousin and me has a large collection of (supposedly) vintage jewelry, all a buck or two. We spent about $20 combined on jewelry alone, and I ended up paying a few more bucks for something much more worth it than the jewelry.
In the back, stuffed in a corner, was about five shoe boxes stuffed with vintage patterns, and a good sized collection of vintage fabric. I bought a few pieces of fabric, and one fantastic '60s coat pattern. I don't have any plans for using it, but just looking at it is all kinds of happy.
Anyway, I'll be getting around to making a few new sets of icons this week, and possibly even update the layout. I really want to start getting into graphics again (took a long leave), so my ultimate goal for the Summer is set up an Icon Community, layout & all.
Should be fun.
