Today has been a wonderful day I hope for you also!!!

Today has been the best day I spent the whole day with my girlfriend Charla we met via the internet through an msn decorating group and hit it off. We live about 40 minutes from each other and today was our second outing. Today I shuttled her around to my favorite thrift shops- although one was closed only to open with a big sale at 6pm today- but I had to get my husbands dinner and lunch ready for him to take to work so we didn't go back there but otherwise I think we both had fun at least I hope she did and I know I did- I also know I talked her ear off LOL.
Anyways about our treasures- no pics on my end sorry girls- long story short no more router no more lap top no more new digi pics till I get a new digi cam that is up to date or finish a roll of reg pics which ever comes first but doo let me tell you about them
I had two things in hand at the first store but put them back before leaving- good thing cause I barely remember what they were so they weren't spectacular.

Next store we went to was a retail store called Bombay- we both left there with a Christmas ornament- scenario there is ornie to die for + big sale= cash out of pocket and treasure for the tree lol.
Then we went to lunch I introduced her to Vietnamese quisine.... I wonder what she really thought of it ???
Then to my house- she met the hubby and my doggies Maggie and Jorgie and they fell in love with her as much as she fell in love with them the dogs that is LOL. They already miss their Aunt Charla.
Then it was off to my circle of thrift stores and treasures were found by each of us... Charla got the most adorable Birdhouse topiary floral arrangement and Me wellll....

I scored what I believe to be a real silver pitcher even if it is only plated for 10$ it was a score!! I found a beautiful plate with Jesus surrounded by sheep and holding a lamb- and it has 10kgold scroll work all along the rim of the plate... can you say awww. I also grabbed 2 cherubs and the most unusual glass vase that I am using as a candle holder. The Top of the vase is lattice done in glass.... it's really pretty.

Well that brings us to the end of a wonderful day.
I hope you all have superb weekends.
Let me leave you with.... The doggie shot for the day not much on manners those two, but whose fault is that really??? lol

A Shot of Christmas Past

And Christmas present

Have a Happy Evening everyone it's so good to be on the web.


  1. Hey Ranae, sounds like you had fun. There's nothing better than thrift or antique shopping with a girlfriend or a daughter. My daughter and I go all the time. You better check the Irish Craftworkers site because you won the corsage you lucky girl!

  2. The vase sounds wonderful. I love any and all things glass. I think the plate was waiting for you to come and buy it. Sounds perfect for your home. I haven't been thrifting for a few weeks. I think I'll wait until the new year when everyone clears out their old stuff to make room for new stuff.

  3. HI Chris- it was so much fun. I heard from Rebecca in the email about the crosage. YAY when I was at her site yesterday I didn't see a posting but I will go by there today.. I am so excited I haven't won something in years lol.

    Shirlee I took a bunch of pics this morning with my regular camera hopefully I'll be able to post pics soon.
