Good Monday Morning my devoted followers!
I know I've been a bit sporadic in my blogging and visits the
last few days. It's been sort of a hectic week and haven't had
much time, or inclination frankly, to hit the computer. Last
week started off with the news of a death in the family. It
wasn't immediate family, but it was a shock and devastating
nonetheless. Then I had my Costume Party on Wednesday,
which was an enormous amount of FUN! You were all
amazing! On Friday I had to attend said funeral/reception.
Saturday, my Cousin Pony Girl and I had to do prep work
(with a little help from my loveleigh big Sister) for a yard
sale. I took pictures to share with you all, but the turnout
was a bit low. We decided it was worth the effort though,
even at the amount we came away with. I think it was a bit
slow because it was Father's Day. Goodwill got the cast offs
and we called it good! Again, I was just too lazy to post about
the whole she-bang. I was asleep by 11:30, rare for me.
Now for the fun stuff, Pony Girl and I took a little time to hit
a couple of antique stores! A little fun after all our hard work.
I love looking at old silver and all this shiny goodness is from
my favorite little nook in this shop. Tucked away on the top of
three floors, there are always neat little treasures here for the
eye to fall upon.
This children's garden furniture is adorable. It's tiny, I don't
think it would fit children over 7. I think it could be redone and
Old, old pony, much cheaper that the real version I'm sure! If
you notice the old brick wall in this picture and the one above,
it gives you an idea that this is an old building. It's in the
historic downtown area and at one time back in the 1950's, it
used to be the JC Penny building. It's HUGE (for a small town!),
it's 3 levels and the top floor is the neatest with brick walls, old
hardwood floors that are crooked and warped, and wooden
beam ceilings. I think it was probably the storage area for the
merchandise and incoming orders. I don't know what the
buildings original use was, it would be interesting to find out.
All of the mini children's things fascinate me. To look at them
and think how many sweet and ornery little angels have used
these items over the years...
especially this teeny bed. I don't know if this was used for a
real child, it's so small, I don't think a little one over two would
fit. It could be that it was made to be a playbed for a little girl's
dollies. We had a fun, relaxing time. I did manage to come
away with nothing. I didn't see anything I couldn't live
without. Pony Girl however, found a few little treasures, she
was a good girl and stuck "close" to the limit she set herself.
I promise to try and play catch up this week a make a visit
round to each of you. I want to catch up on ALL your
happenings and see what I've missed. Lots of good things I'm
