Treasures Found

This past weekend I was a bit restless and didn’t want to hang around the house, so I ventured out on my own to a little town about 45 minutes from me…Floyd, Virginia.

Floyd is best known for bluegrass music and I knew there would be some antique shops there.  Not being a huge bluegrass fan, I was going for the antiques and beautiful drive.

I hit the jackpot and went into all the shops, there were three great ones.  Chic’s Antique Mall, Finders Keepers, and one other that I can’t for the life of me remember the name of, but was right next to Chic’s.

Here is what I found…

This set of silver.  I’ve never bought silver before, so I wasn’t really sure about my purchase, but it just spoke to me and so I got it.  It needs a good cleaning, but its so pretty.  It’s stamped 1947.

I also got this set of ironstone salt and pepper shakers.  (Excuse the brightness of this picture.)

What have you found lately?

Next week is Random Act of Kindness week. February 14 – 20.

Each one of us can make a difference. I love this video. Thanks Layla for sharing it.

Share what you will do next week to make someone’s day…and yours.


Its always good to laugh

I recently found this blog called “Catalog Living“.  If you haven’t been there yet, get right on over there for some comic relief.  The writers, Elaine and Gary, take pages from a catalog and poke fun at some of the crazy things that the designers place for the photo.  Just take a look, you won’t be sorry.

Here’s one of my favorite (it was hard to choose).

Time to come clean…

“Gary has no idea what exactly Elaine does in the shower every day, but he certainly knows better than to touch her wooden shower spoon or shower branch.”  (picture and text courtesy of Catalog Living)

Now, I look at catalogs in a whole new light.  

Have a great Sunday!
