They let me out!

It has been way to long since my last vintage adventure.  
With a busy summer schedule I have had to put my wants behind my needs.
Today after everyone was settled 
(honestly you would think teens would be easier than toddlers?)
I grabbed my bag and hit a few of my favorite stores.
Perfection in peace.

Tool box for paper goodies.

Darling card tie ons.

Gummed stickers and mini greetings.

Sweet yellow tablecloth with matching napkins and a few doilies for a project in the making.

Scallops, polka dots and turquoise...I am in!
 Hanging this treasure on my old barn ladder to enjoy.

These colors are dreamy.  
Another tablecloth to join the other on the ladder.
Normally I am not such a sucker for these but the prices were right and the colors were timeless.

These pieces practically jump in my basket.  
The matte finish just does me in.
Perfect for my living room.

ooh...storage in a cute pie size picnic basket.

Pink Spun Head Shelf

It was wonderful to get out and just be for an hour.
Then I came home and cleaned each treasure in time for dinner.
Tomorrow I will enjoy placing every piece in its new place.
Right after every toddler/teen is perfectly taken care of.

Another fantastic giveaway opportunity today
Another wonderful Artist Imagimeri
Pop over and see her amazing goodies.

You found more in an hour than I find in a month sometimes. I think we'd both feel better if you handed over those floral tablecloths. ;-)

What fun goodies. I'm glad you were able to sneak away. I keep hoping that it gets easier as the girls get older. Not so...huh? The graphics on your cards are so darling and I've been on the hunt for the perfect picnic basket for my sister. Have a lovely Wednesday!!

It really is a nice treat to have some away time and it looks like you spent it well. Can I guess what will end up on the pink spun head shelf?

Oooh, I love the pottery!

So glad you got time to thrift. Love all of your finds. Once again you hit the jack pot. I must be missing out. Our thrift have not been so good.
