Happy Sunday Everyone!!
Yesterday Brett and I decided to head off for an over night shopping trip. We headed over to St. Mary’s, MO., then across to Fairview Heights for the night.
Here are some of the goodies I purchased on my trip.
Now these are just quick photos, I’ll be sure to show them off better when I find a spot for them.
Also some of this is going to be listed on my website or Etsy shop, as soon as I get time.
First off, let me start with my favorite find.
I found this Amazing, antique coverlet.
No holes, no rips, nothing!!
It does have a slight bit of yellowing around the edges, but that is it.
It was made from three separate sections, sewn together to form one coverlet.
It is a little small for my bed, but it will do for now.
And for the price, I couldn't pass it up.
Anyway, here it is.
I also got…
An antique crock.
An old wool blanket. Also in wonderful condition.
A whole bunch of fabric.
I love purchasing fabric from antique stores.
You can find such bargains on it.
Each one of these large, yardage, bundles only cost me $1 to $1.50.
Cant beat that!
A lot of antique doll and baby clothes, for my teddy bears.
Large, old, egg, cake pan or mold.
Vintage wood bowl and some quilt blocks.
Small, lidded, crock.
Wonderful reproduction, box to hang from peg.
And most of you know, I LOVE flat back cookie cutters and have a large collection of them.
Check out this this large bunny one I found!!
True, old, primitive stuffed cat toy.
An old mirror.
I did purchase some more items, but they are for an upcoming swap, so I cant show them off right now.
Here are a couple of online purchases I did get in this past week.
Check out this wonderful old coverlet piece I purchased from Michelle on Facebook.
Thank you so much, Michelle!
I love it!!
I also purchased this old child's dress from Lori.
Thank you so much Lori!!
I Love it!!
Last but certainly not least, just purchased one of Dru's amazing teddy bears.
I only sent payment off Friday, so he hasn't had time to arrive to his new home yet.
I will be sure to show him off again when he does.
But for now, I will use Dru's photo to show you.
Don’t you just Love him!!
I know I do!!
I'm so excited for him to arrive.
I have wanted one of Dru's bears Forever!!
Thank you so much, sweetheart, for making him for me!!
I also wanted to share the new clothes pin bag I just made.
Didn’t it turn out cute!!
I used burlap and old flour sack fabric.
I currently have it listed in my Etsy Shop if you want to check it out.
Well, that is it for me today.
I have been suffering from a terrible headache all day.
I keep trying to push through it, but I think it is time to go lay down and rest.
Until Next Time….
Take Care Everyone!!
