A day away from the house.

I had to venture out to town to buy a few groceries so i stopped in at a few places i have been missing for some time now.. I picked up a few goodies i want to share with you.. I found this great doll box, the kind that is mostly a tissue roll cover. This beauty is simply a box.. She is wonderful, and has such pretty hair..

I also found a few porcelain goodies.. baskets of roses, one is a Nuaov Capodimonte from Italy..and one is Royal Dover from England.. I also found this very pretty Egg shaped vase in the colors i love so.. It has the long footed legs and roses with gold trim.. It is aqua and pink.. I found a very pretty tablecloth, some little trays of some kind from Italy, silver i think. I added two more small cloches to my new collection. I also had give to me a very nice cake stand that i am painting white . i am into the wedding cake toppers now as well and found a heart shaped box with a bride and groom with doves on it. not a topper but still sweet. I will gather all this up and snap a whole shot of all of it together. Well as luck has it, my batteries on my camera are down, so i will get the photos another day.. But any way i did enjoy my day out, to get out some of the stress of this mess in my yard from the storm.. Enjoy your weekend..

Hi Sheila

I got my fabric quarters from Shabby Fabrics.com They are so pretty I don't want to use them!! I am planning on making pillows and recovering some chair seats.
