OMG...the sun...and a day of shopping...weeeee...


Check it out...BLUE SKY!!!

It's a miracle and it was out for two whole hours...you notice the ice has melted from our frozen river, that's a good thing, it will send much of it downstream to prevent flooding here...in theory anyway!


So I went to my favorite haunt and did a little R&R...SHOPPING, haven't been in so long because of the weather(and finances)...but aren't these just the cutest lil' shoes ever!!! They're about two inches long and very delicate...sweet!

This to die for portrait...it's crying to stay at the chateau...but you know the game...must go to the shop...argh...

This wonderful old ladder back chair that just may have to be black...or white, haven't decided yet, wonderful gold frames, lil' linoleum topped stool and great bridge lamp...sigh...

I bought three of these old picture thermometers with country scenes..too sweet...

Ladies shoe forms, sweet statues of a young man and a German Shepherd dog...

...and who doesn't need a pair of pachyderms...especially a red one, made of chalk, I wonder if they were carnival prizes...hmmm...

I gotta do this more often, now that we've had a glimpse of Spring...yeah, yeah, yeah, I know...we have two more months of harsh Winter yet...but WHO'S COUNTING...

HOWEVER...it's snowing right now...ARGH!!!

Treasures! I especially like the statue of the young man. You would be SO fun to shop with!

The ice must not have been too bad. We have it in the forecast this week. I hate ice! Loved the goodies - I liked the statue too.

Thought I would see what was happening in your neck of the woods. Digging out of yet ANOTHER BLIZZARD! We all need some sun and fun. Fun as in junking! Always a treat to read your blog.

You found some good stuff! The thermometers are way cool. That picture you want to keep... I've had a rule for years that anything new that comes in, something else has to leave - helps keep the collections from owning me.

You made a nice haul.

I'm going to the White Elephant Sale on Sunday. Somewhere in the Greater San Fran area. I'll think of you as I'm perusing....

I made some tiny pincushions out of porcelain shoes like yours years ago. Cute.
