Heartiest Greetings, dear blog friends!My sweet Mama and I have been having so much fun! I have lots of pretty photos to share today! First are the photos from my favorite antique mall. I love the pretty pastels, the lovely creamy whites and that great piece of wrought iron fencing!Mmmmm!! Look at those wonderful chippy aqua doors!!Oooohh!! A pretty in pink prom dress!!See that pretty white vintage flower basket in the photo above? I bought it! And see the pretty pink frosted window in the photo below? It is so much prettier in person. I wanted to buy that , but it was quite pricey.I fell in love with this gorgeous table! Isn't it the most perfect shade of aqua?! I pretty much wanted to buy everything you saw in those photos above, but here is what I was lucky enough to come home with. A large doily with the prettiest crochet trim, these lovely ribbons and this gorgeous pile of vintage laces- all for only $6!!
Here is the white vintage basket I told you I bought, filled with my favorite vintage millinery flowers!And I also got this cute little flower frog. I love using them to show off old postcards and photos!
My sweet Mama bought me this amazing vintage frame that I adore!! She also bought me this super cute lantern at Hobby Lobby!
We will be going to a few more antiques stores next Saturday so check back for more fun photos!

oh my goodness!
I love everything. What a great store, and what you paid for the lace was excellent. The frame Mom bought you was so regal and princess like. Seems like you and Mom had a great time.
