As you can see, I did pretty good. I found a little wood vanity bench, vintage tiara, old picture frame, bag of buttons, metal basket, two small vintage prints, old books, two old baby pics, little gold sewing kit/case, floral fabric, two boxes of vintage greeting cards, vintage silver watch and cottage covered scrap book all at the Flea Market. In Salem I found the yellow roses print, needlepoint cover, porcelain girl, tiny perfume bottle, tiny wood easel, large glass jar with handpainted roses, scallopy green wood tray, another silver watch and amber glass knob (not pictured).
After we got done shopping Joy and I met Isabel and Jean at the Greenbaum's Quilt Shop to do a Cottage Quilt Tour/Quilt Show. It was fun seeing all the quilts and homes of quilters. Here are Joy and Isabel outside of the Old Mill Museum where the quilt show was held.
On my way home I stopped at an antique shop that I had previously spotted a cute rustic display cabinet. It needed a little work, but I thought it wouldn't take too much to fix it up, mostly just trip to the glass shop. I really needed something like this to display my small items at Monticello. So, I was able to talk the shop owner down a little in price and I also got this.
My favorite find of the day. The mirror that is. Sorry about the super blurry pictures today. Isn't it so cute? It was pretty grimy when I saw it in the store, but nothing a little magic eraser couldn't handle. I just love it with my vintage beaded necklaces hanging on it along with my newest collection, vintage watches.
The kiddies only have two days of school this week due to conferences and a non-contract day for the teachers. I guess I should plan some fun activities so they are not just sitting around watching tv and playing video games all day. Being home will be good for me though as I will be able to tackle some more chores and I won't be out shopping. Yikes, I have been going a little overboard lately, haven't I? Like I said, it's an addiction.
I want to send a little thank you to Priscilla over at Sweet Rememberance for helping me with my sidebar flickr thingy! Thanks so much! My husband also helped me resize the picture for my banner. Hope you like the changes!
