A day of walking and discovering

We went to Warrenton and Round Top Texas today to go do some junking or antiquing as most like to call it.  There was so much to see and I was ready to buy, buy, buy.  But, as usual I would think it over then decide that I should wait because I might find something better.  I did finally start to do some actual buying as did my hubby.  I kept gravitating to furniture pieces but I knew that we didn’t really need it so I would walk away, take a glance again then keep on walking.  The other things that caught my eye today were glass bottles and mason jars, loved them and took photos of them to share.  I came home with two turquoise mason jars, an old book of music sheets, buttons, some costume jewelry to take apart and recreate something new.  I also came home with a stamp holder, you know the kind that spins around and believe it or not that is it.  My sweet hubby kept asking are you sure there isn’t anything else you want?  How about that big piece of furniture that Linda was selling (Linda is the lady I bought last years furniture piece from that I use in my craft studio).  But, in the end I actually said no, I knew we didn’t have a spot for it and so I was a good girl.  Besides, next weekend we are going to Tyler to visit my in-laws and we won’t be too far from Canton TX and they too have a huge flea market only there is every first weekend of the month.  So, I might just get to go there and then maybe I will find something there that I can’t live without, LOL.

Love this photo and came home with these jars.


Loved these bottles below but left them there for someone else to take home.

Wouldn’t you love to have this piece below, I mean think of the storage! Me too, but no space and refuse to pay what they were asking for it and more importantly I would have to use a ladder to reach more than half of the drawers.  LOL


And here is a photo of my sweetie checking out some manly stuff and being silly for the camera.

Wanted a typewriter but this one didn’t work and I would rather find a working one.


And lastly, check out this little lady scooting around on her scooter and she has the hook up!

If I can ever drag my guy to it I will have to head down to check it out. Perhaps June, as I better have a job by then. (I don't drive so will -have to- drag him with, ya see).
