Today I went exploring some of the Consignment shops, 2nd hand stores and Antique places. I didn't hit to many. Its still early in the season and not much going on in the 2nd hand shops.
I went to a 2nd hand store I hadn't been to before and I am sure I won't be going back too. This was stuff I bet other 2nd hand stores wouldn't even consider taking.
I went to the consignment store I really like and have been to several times over the past 3 years. Stuff is always moving and new things are always coming in. I found 2 pieces I liked and bought then. I also bought raffle tickets for a really nice box of hand painted glass mugs and other items to help the women's center raise money for breast cancer, seems the hospital lost there grant for free mammograms. Pretty sad I say. The other gift being raffled off was a Margaretta basket. It also has hand painted glasses and pitcher to make the margaritas in and lots of other stuff for a party..
I then cruised a neighbor hood and wound up on this washboard road so I turned around.
I went to the Antique Emporium and had a look around, but nothing caught my eye.
When I left the house on this little trip it was still cool so I had on jeans and a black thermal shirt. I was melting. So I went home and changed into a t-shirt and Capri pants. Went for a walk with Fred and then made a salad for lunch. Spent the rest of the afternoon sitting on the porch and crocheting and walks.
Walmart called and my glasses are in so I will head over there tomorrow and since I will be so close to Show Low Lake I will stop there.
I wanted something small to put my fruit in and found this little bowl with the handle and spout it worked perfect
I had the coffee pot from a purchase last year and today I found the little tin cup it has a candle in it and it smells great if you stick your nose right in it. I thought it would look good on the fake wood burning stove.
These are the Azalea's I bought the other day. I will bury the pot deeper and maybe plant some flowers around it. When I go back to Tucson I can pull the pot out and take them with me.
I liked the color of these but I forgot what they are called again. Something is growing in this pot it may be some of the flowers I had in there last summer. Or they could be just weeds.
Hope you all are having a great week so far.
As I was checking my spelling I found I could not see all of the post on the left side. I hope its there when I publish.
