Something Old, Something Cute....

I love antique stores! Even if I don't
end up buying anything, I love going
down memory lane.
And on a recent trip I got to enjoy both
the reminiscing and the buying!!!

I found several old bottles that will be all
gussied up very soon!




Some darling gloves that I was looking for to
create a fun table setting.



Several milk glass saucers...uh, yes, I love
milk glass too...but that is for another
day! :)

This adorable pink vase!!!

And, last but not least, a $ 2.95 picture frame!
It has already been painted to begin its new
life as part of our new "Fall" blog banner!!

But I did forget to but the big $10 ballerina!!!!
I guess I was too distracted with everything
else.....

But what fun!!!

  2. So love antique stores as well. Even though I do not buy anything it is so fun. Once a year we have this huge antique marked in my area and I look so forward to go... in the beginning of November that is. Have to bring a big car and plenty of people that can help me carry..laughter :o))))

  6. Hi! I'm old enought to remember when we ALWAYS had to wear our gloves. They do make an outfit cute especially when we were little. I don't like the long opera length gloves too well but had some of them. I told my daughter, you know your're getting old when you see your childhood in the antique store!!
