Treasured Friend and Treasures From My Trip

Hey everyone, I went a little over
board on my buying on the trip, last
month to our granddaughter's 
wedding ......I had to mail back two
boxes of stuff!  I like shopping in
different states, you can find some
great stuff!  I wish I had my van, but
we flew, so that limits you on what 
you can buy, that is for sure.
You can see a mustard colored 
cookie jar in the picture, above. I 
didn't get that on the trip, I got it
at that little flea market, that we go
to some weekends.  I got it for $2!  
I saw one on the trip for $35!
Like most cats, Chum has to lay on 
what ever is brought into the house,
so he took a nap in my wooden bowl.
The old sock dryer has it's original
price tag on it! I got a great deal on 
the Warren Kimble plates.
I hadn't bought any Boyd's bears in 
years, except for an ornie, so I came 
home with two of them, plus two others,
that aren't Boyd's. There are molds,
cookie cutters and patterns and pattern
I put the peeker bear, in the pear suit, 
in one of my big wooden bowls with 
some utensils on the hutch and I put
the two bears on the right up on the 
shelf, that we put up awhile back,
you can see that shelf, a couple posts
You can see part of a willow tree with
patriotic stars on it, it's up on that 
shelf, also.  The blue and white 
material, that you see, are panels 
that you can cut out and make 
pillows, throws or what ever you 
want with them. There is a throw 
underneath them, that I am 
thinking of cutting up to make 
things with....Probably won't
happen, we'll see.

Well, I saved the best for last!  I got to 
meet up with a dear blogging friend,
T. J. of Willow Bend Prims and
from Prim Pals!  We got to shops a
little, but the time went by too fast!
I had gotten my hair cut and permed
and it rained on us a little and boy 
did it frizz up! We were having so 
much fun, we couldn't quit smirking
and laughing long enough to get a
good picture...This is the best of the
bunch...The girls taking the pictures
were trying to get us to behave, but
that was impossible!  I found a lot
of the goodies I bought on the trip
in the Traderbakers Flea Market,
which we had just come out of....
Such fun, we will have to do it, again!
I didn't have a whole lot of time at 
any place, but I had a lot of fun, got
lots of goodies (lot of it is still in a box)
and hope we can do it, again!

It was great meeting you, T.J!!!!

I will be posting my giveaway, soon,
so be watching for that and thanks
for stopping by!
