Thrill of the Hunt


Wow, double post today! I went to my favorite consignment shop this weekend! I hadn't been there since a few weeks before Christmas. When I pull into the parking lot, it's a feeling of sheer delight! This particular shop has housewares, furniture, linens and clothing! It has a variety of everything and the two women that own it do a wonderful job. As I walk around looking at all the treasures to be had I repeatedly tell my sister, ohhhh you should buy this! Or I really want this but (the reduntant answer, lol) I have NO more room! But, it's the little things that make me so happy! The little glass pedestal bowl was on the $2 table outside the shop. The little needlepoint was hiding underneath something and NEEDED to come home with me! The little daisy placecards and birdies were together and spotted immediately. And my love for vintage kitchen utencils and tools is becoming an obsession! It's a nice retreat to the stresses of everyday that make me, oh so happy! :)
