Summer Time is Busy Time


And
FuN Time


 Antiquing and Thrifting


Globes & Maps

We look for them wherever we go, but we're
picky about
color & age

The tall one is our newest find, 
Perfect Color
Perfect Age

Do you remember my DIY- Tin Can Fun?



Today, one is filled 
with a bouquet of 
No 2 Pencils 
and 
the other
with
Colorful Art Pencils

We USE them every day.

:)

Another find that was the 
perfect color
and
perfect age



was this original oil painting.

It's not perfect by any measure
but we
love its charm.

There was even a note on the back from Chloe.
1923 or 22
"I watched this being painted
Gave 50¢ for it"


Thank You, Chloe!

Seriously though, 
this has been a crazy summer
and 
I can hardly 
believe
it's 
almost over.

 Our family drama was intense with the loss of a loved one.
We've been on the road a lot
but not always fun.

Perhaps
that's why our little jaunts 
to thrift stores & antique shops
WERE
so much FuN!

It was like a little 
mini 
vacation for us.



 Hope your 
Summer Days 
have been
a whole lot of lazy!


Blessings!


PS:  Buzz found a chair, table, clock & ottoman too ... I LOVE it when he goes antiquing with me.  He has an awesome eye and is always confident I'll find a spot for the treasures he finds....and, Yes, I do!
