Saturday Finds

It is Saturday, one day gone already of the long weekend. I had a quiet 4th and was able to get caught up on a few things around here.

Today was a fun adventure of antiquing. We were minus our pals Kim and her girls Kelsey and little Miss Aliya. Today Aliya was celebrating her 5th birthday. Kim posted some great pics of Aliya on her blog. Check them out!

So anyway after our usual Starbuck's run we headed to Mystic to pick up the new to us photo holders and a bit of this and that. Rick had some antique finds that Colleen was interested in like a folding ruler (yah Kim she bought another one) and watch parts and what not.

From Mystic it was to Merchant Square. Found some things I was really happy with. My two biggest and best bargains were the huge bag of buttons many still on their cards for $3.00 and the little nosegay of flowers for get this $1. They are the sweetest little bunch of pale yellow happiness. Colleen found many many many things including a set of bread pans she had been wanting.

Large postcard album
The palest pink doily
Dainty linens
That is the highlight of my purchases. I have a few other items like a 1894 book and some more buttons.

After a quick trip to Zoe's to get fabric for my new project we headed to Paper Studio. Fun fun. Cindy and Gary are always so welcoming and fun to visit with. Colleen went wild with many things including a canvas by anahata katkin , paper and books many many books.

We ended our day as per usual at Wildflower for a scrumptious sandwich and salad

Great day good friend hot weather
