Running On Empty

My booth was getting sparse and in need of furniture,so out I went yesterday to do some picking.  Got these great dresser lamps,  railroad lantern, dressform, grocery scale, great old bloomers,chippy dresser and oval table.  A few of these are keepers.  Great finds from three places, There are still good things out there to find!  I am a happy picker today.                            judy

I Got Mail

Just received this from "Petite Michelle Louise" thru ETSY. Look how sweet they are wrapped. Hated to open them, almost.   I could smell the lavender thru the package. UMM... I bet my mail lady wanted to keep this one.  This was my first etsy buy.    Thanks Michelle, I love them. Very speedy delivery too! Thanks again!     judy

Pink Things

This is my find yesterday for myself.   Perfect for my kitchen.  They say today will be a shorts and t-shirt kind of day.     Tuesday will change! Sleet and rain.  Happy Saturday.... off to the sales!       judy

Nothing Beats Vintage

Like Dawn at "Bohemian Valhalla"  I too have an  obsession for dressforms.  I love  vintage clothing also.   Old wedding dresses, etc...   Now these were one of a kind treasures.  Old prom dresses are a favorite also.  This dressform is one of mine. I have sold the others reluctantly.  Off to my booth to paper walls and add some new.    It's going to be around 70 degrees today.    Oh happy day!          judy

Chippy Is A Good Thing

I don't know what the facination with chippy old things is.  The wood chair in the top photo is on my porch.  The red can  and green school bench are also mine.  Don't you just love the little kid chairs on the blue porch?  This was taken at a neighborhood called old town Rockwall, Texas. I did not have the good camera on me that day.   Have a chippy day.                         judy

I Heart Hearts

I love the Valentine holiday because their are so many beautiful things that can be used all year round. Saw these and just loved the french words with the silver. It's a beautiful day here. Started at 25 degrees but now 43.  Still not tops after the stomache thing last week. But pushing to feel better.

Vintage Purses

It's amazing to me how these pretties have stood the test of time.  They seem so fragile.   They hang on my wall so I can see them everyday. If they could only tell where they have been.
