I wanted to go the the Antique Mall by me for so long, now was my chance! I also had to get my hair cut - I was starting to look like a drenched dog! So I browsed the antiques - nothing here jumped out at me....oh well.
On my way out, I called the beauty shop to see if they could fit me in - YES!! WoW, 2 things accomplished, oh ya -3, I got the van washed just before that too.
So I had some more time to waste....why not more shopping - right?? There is this cute little store by me in Mt Lebanon - Vicar Home & Garden (sorry, no web site). Just what I need - I love this store!!! Antiques, shabbychic stuff, garden things....just my speed!!
You are probably surprised by this, because my work is so....hmmmm, I don't know....different! I love antiques - they remind me of my grandparents that I miss soo much. Antiques have so much history, warmth, and had a purpose in someones life once - sooo deep!
I also love watching Antiques Roadshow too!! (not only for the history of the things brought in, but maybe I might see something I have that will be worth a fortune that I only paid a buck for!!! LOL!!)
Ok, now with about an hour to waste, I must have circled this small shop 3 times, trying to make sure I didn't miss anything. (I even turned off my cell phone so no one would call me!!)
So here are my finds....
*A book - Word Finder- cir. 1921 $4 (it has words listed and pronounciations - about 150 pages) I'm gonna so hate to cut it up.
*A mossy cement frog - $12. (did I tell you I like frogs??? LOL!!!)
*2 Little shabbychick photo holders - $4 ea. ( I just had to have 2 - they are soo cute!)
*Matching picture easle $8 (gotta have it-matched the other holders)
Not included was the distressed chair they are sitting on for their picture - this was another garbage day find and it sits on our front porch.
While I was checking out, we talked about when they were opened and the clerk said the owner was looking for someone to fill in...hmmmm a doable thing maybe??
I have so neglected ME. Working at my LSS is something I love to do for ME!! (even though the extra $ goes towards car insurance and gas for the 16 year old until he get a job) I think my day job is OK, but I need more fun ME TIME! I so have neglected my flower gardens too, so I think this is the year I will get them straightened up - more fun ME TIME!
Thanks for stopping and learning a little more about me.
Leave me a comment - I love the attention!
