Missing them already......
My parents just left this afternoon and I miss them already. We had such a fun visit and antique shopping was a big part of that fun! Above is my mom and my sweet little guy.
He is so good to always pose for me and my millions of photos I take! This store always has so many wonderful goodies both inside and outside as you can see.
It was inside this store I found an amazing bargain. I found this gorgeous 16 X20 oval wood frame for only $10!!! I had them hold it while my mom and I looked around the store for more treasures. When I was ready to pay the man who worked there said "Oh, that has already been paid for by a benefactor- and admirer of yours." I looked at my Mama and said "DAD!!" Apparently, while we were busy shopping he was busy buying this for me. I thought he was just at the counter showing off his grandson! How sweet is that? Thanks Dad!!
Next is my new VERY favorite antique store! This place was loaded with all sorts of goodies that I love! Dreamy, isn't it? All the lovely shades of white?? It had lots of booths full of colorful goodies, too!It was in this store I found another treasure that I have recently been searching for........
this sweet carnival doll!!! My sweet Mama bought her for me. Isn't she SO cute??
I made her a little dress of lace and gave her some pink feathers for her hair.
I love this booth at yet another antique mall, but the prices were very high, so I just look here for fun and inspiration.
Oh, and here are some yummy colored vintage prom dresses. I loved the pink one in front. Sorry I didn't get a better photo. I wanted to take it home with me but it wasn't exactly in my price range!
Here are a few of my sweet Mama's beautiful vintage finds.....
Actually, I found these beauties for her. We were in a booth and I saw a huge wardrobe and I said "I wonder if anything is in here" but in my head I was thinking there wouldn't be. But there was! I found a big ziplock full of vintage millinery flowers! We went through them and each bought a few of the best ones. What a fun and lucky find!!
Here is a plate I gave my Mama for her birthday and some more of her vintage finds.
She found the entire set of rhinestone jewelry above for only $4- wow!! I guess the Antique's Fairy was watching over us and guiding us to the prettiest goodies and the best bargains!! LOL!!
Thanks for the fun time Mama and Dad!
