Fantastic Finds

I hope you all had a fantastic spring break and joyous Easter celebration. Bill and I started spring break with a mini vacation to The Springfield Antique Mall then on to the quaint village of Waynesville for a day of shopping in a town filled with darling antique and specialty shops. I met fellow blogger Mary Kay who owns Winsome Cottage- and her shop is just delightful!  We had a wonderful conversation and I learned so much about using the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint that I bought two quarts and a can of wax! I had just rescued a dresser and a chair  from a garage sale the week before so I can hardly wait to begin those projects. We were laughing because
 " we bloggers"  depend on pictures to illustrate our posts however neither one of us had a camera that day to capture our experience. Mary Kay had a new phone that she was not too familiar with for taking pictures. We had left our camera back at the hotel, took pictures on our phones but have had trouble downloading them! Geez!! Since then my sweet husband bought me a smaller camera that I can fit in my purse. We had a great experience -thanks so much Mary Kay!
Here are some of my Fantastic Finds from Waynesville...

The last day we went the Heritage Square Antique Mall in Columbus and I just loved the creative booths we saw! I was able to visit another blogger Polly's booth called Georgie Emerson and Motley Junket. I bought a few things and just meandered around looking at some of the coolest vignettes I have ever seen! 
I Couldn't Pass Up This Vintage Tray!

 I Adore this Little Button Yo-Yo Vintage Flower Pin!

The rest of the break was spent doing yard work in order to prepare for the graduation party we will have in a few months. The weather was terrific and I am so grateful for the blessings we have been provided by God!
 Here are some of photos taken with the new camera of the exterior of our home that is now ready for Spring....
