Black Friday Finds! Antique Style...

What a week!
First of all, Happy Thanksgiving to all my lovely readers!
I love reading all of your comments and I treasure your ideas!

Usually my momma and I wake up early to go out to
the mall for Black Friday.

But this year we didn't really need anything.

So, as the strangest-of-strange crafty people do...

We thought we needed more antique supplies.

And a good road trip!!

So we set on our merry way to Ithaca.

We knew that there were some nifty shops in Trumansburg
(on the way to Ithaca)...

And a HUGE antique mall just outside the 
'Gorgeous' city...

We found some stuff! 
(insert evil little smiley face here)

I saw a cigar box... And I have so many...
I just had to look inside (usually there isn't anything)

FULL to the brim with these buttons!
And I didn't even have to wash them!
So bizarre... 

All kinds of colors... plastic and vegetable...

And then... Two super vintage mugs!

 I enjoy the clear glass measuring cups for water when I paint...

And this peace mug was so adorable!


LOVE this side even more!

And then... We were headed home.
After a successful day trip we decided that we still had more in us.

So we went to an even BIGGER antique mall closer to home.
This enamel bowl was so modern and clean...
I was amazed and so it came home with me :)

I need to visit Finland next...

I think every mushroom is different...
I've just never really seen anything like it!

I hope you all had an awesome Thanksgiving...
I know it was great to see family again.

Have a great Sunday!
Much love!

I Won A Giveaway! And How Cute!

I won Pinky!!! I saw a giveaway on 
Two Bags Full's page and commented...

I saw this Breast Cancer Awareness ewe 
(craftily made by the very creative lady of Days at Buttermilk Cottage!)
and wished for her!

This means so much to me and as Vicki said to me,
"It was fate!" 

I'm so thankful for friends such as Pinky and Vicki for
bringing smiles to those around them.
I've been trying to blog as much as possible but I have limited extra time.

Things like this help me realize that blogging is just meeting new friends.
I need to blog more :)

Now Pinky can join my other handmade pets;
I made this owl a few years ago. He matches Pinky quite nicely!
Have a lovely rest of your night, friends.
