Saturday’s Shopping Trip + More!~

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.

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!

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!!

Tam, HOLY MOLY, You and Brett and Ken and I should go off for the weekend. The guys could go do something for alittle while and you and I could go shopping until we drop and we would have a ball. I LOVE your antique coverlet and the crock is awesome. We sure do have the same taste!!!

The clothespin bag is so darn cute and the fabric you got for $1.00 to $1.50 is amazing and I can see from the picture you took I all of the prints!! YOU GO GIRL! Isn't it fun to go off shopping with our Hubby's I know I enjoy it alot!

I can't wait to see where you put the rest of your stuff, and by the way I LOVE the BUNNY RABBIT cookie cutter!!!

I don't find alot of those things my way, I am sure they are around but you have to be there at the right time before someone scoops them up!!

Have a great night!
