Oh my ~

Happy Saturday my friends ~ Oh my! It was a long week for me, but now it is Saturday.  A day for rest and relaxation and time to visit all of my blogfriends in blogland ~

Last week, Mr. Vintage and I went for a ride.  Here are some of my treasures ~

I picked up these sweet bowls.  When it gets cooler, I'll make some home made soup or stew ~ yum~!

I couldn't resist these beautiful plates ~ I have an addiction I think ;-)

I love the scalloped edges of the bowls ~

I love the flowers on the plates ~ These plates make me smile (see I told you, I DO have an addiction~)

I also picked up this little blue bottle for 10 cents.  I love it!

In romantic prairie style magazine, They had an article about decorating up horse shoes.  Well, I just happened to have one in the shed.  It turned out pretty cute ~

I had a vintage necklace that I used and I had some cowboy boot charms ~ I don't even remember where I got those, but they worked perfectly.

Do you have any horse shoes around?  If you do, try it ~ I had fun doing it~

Today is going to be hot and steamy again, so, Mr. Vintage and I are going for a ride early ~

What are you doing today?  Have you picked up any treasures lately?

Can't wait to hear from you




  1. Such pretty treasures. We are headed out to visit my mom (was supposed to go yesterday but hubby decided to join me...yay!) and then a quiet day tomorrow just relaxing. Too hot for anything else. Have fun,

  2. I love your dishes. I passed some up like that one Saturday. I don't know what I was thinking. I even took a picture of them. She wanted 25 cents each. There was a huge pile. I regret not getting them. I was ashamed of my addition so I walked away. lol I think about them all the time. I am so glad you didn't pass them up! Love your horseshoe! Well done! Have a great weekend!

  3. I just found your blog and can't wait to have a little extra time to dig in and see all your posts! What am I doing today? Hoping to finish the house chores soon and head to a few favorite antique stores to find a treasures of my own! Have a wonderful weekend!
