We've been on the road a lot
but not always fun.

to thrift stores & antique shops

It was like a little
vacation for us.

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!
I love globes too! That painting is pretty and I love the note on the back! My summer has been full of renovations in our mobile home. We have been working on our living and dining rooms and are getting close to finished! I have been repainting and repurposing furniture, mirrors, and decor. Today I went to school to move my stuff into a bigger classroom. No lazy around here either! But...life is good...:)ReplyDelete
How cool. I love the pencil holders. They would be great for a home school room. I'm sharing with my daughter.ReplyDelete

I can't believe the summer has gone as quick as it has!ReplyDelete
There's lots more to do...and I'm not quite ready for Fall.
Haven't we had some of the best weather this year in Texas? Sorry for the loss in your family. I hope you and Buzz continue to have a blessed summer.
The summer is flying! As much as I can't get enough of summer, it does seem to be so busy with gardens, canning, freezing and trying to fit in some thrifting. I love buying books. I read them and bring them back to the thrift store. I also love buying quilts - so cozy at the cottage. Enjoy the remainder of your summer!ReplyDelete
Hi Marietta! It's great to hear from you :) It sounds like you enjoy thrifting as much as we do. Today is Buzz's birthday and I think we may celebrate by heading to some of our favorite thrifting spots (I'm loving the way he wants to celebrate)Delete
Hope you enjoy the rest of your summer too!
