I'm Shopping Till I Drop!

In my never ending quest to find the perfect treasures for my customers, I spend almost every weekend scouring flea markets and antique malls in addition to driving countless miles to auctions and estate sales. Along the way, I always manage to find a trinket or two that I just can't live without...needless to say, they now adorn my house! Okay, everyone...I'm trying to do my part to keep the economy going...lol!

But really, I'm preparing for an upcoming show the first weekend of May, so my treasure hunting has really intensified! This is a big show so I need lots of treasures...it's always nice to have an array of items to display. Anyhow, along my travels I've picked up a couple of things that I absolutely love love love...take a peek!


This little chicken planter was instant eye candy....I love the muted jadeite color...and look at the little bit of chippy red! Soooooo, CUTE! She currently resides on my kitchen window ledge.


Very Victorian looking stained glass window...lots of chippy white paint. I'm going to hang it on my bedroom wall.


My new fetish....chalkware! Isn't she just fabulous...also in my bedroom on the fireplace mantle.

Wow, could you depart with this three tiered rod iron stand...has marble finials. Currently in my bathroom....would look great with white towels!


And just for a little fun...this kidney shaped "EAT" sign which is hanging in my kitchen window. Again, love the jadeite color and all the chippy paint. LOVE IT!
So, what did you do all weekend...buy any treasures that you would like to share...send me a pic and I'll share it with everyone. I would love to hear from you :)

Hi: I just found your blog and I love it. Someone who loves to collect treasures as much as I do. My favorite item you found, I think, is the chalk lady. Your table is beautiful too. Did I tell you I just love the window? I think I have to rethink what I love the best. Will visit a lot! Martha
