Antiquing

This past weekend was spent with my cousin, Gwen, and a local antiques store was on our list of things to do.

This place was huge and filled with so many wonderful items. It was hard to know where to look next.

I'd love to take these jars home ...

And all these buttons.

Definitely not an option, but I did come away with some things that I could pack and take back.

This looks like something I would find in Kuwait so it will go nicely in my tv room.

A sweet little face and Michigan postcards from 1903.

Loved the handwriting on them.

Only 6 more days in the States. The kids are actually counting them down. Hard to believe summer is coming to an end.

Best wishes for a wonderful week. Tammy

I have been following your summer trip to the States and it looks like you all have really been enjoying yourselves. Hard to believe how fast summer is flying by.
Enjoy your last 6 days and safe travels home.

I use to have blue jars like that , but wasn't smart enough to hold onto them. Can't believe your time is almost up, seems like you just got here. Talk to you tomorrow:)
Love,Gwen

Just lovely to look at all the treasures with you!

oooooohhhhhh......the buttons are wonderful! Hard to resist! Don't you love shops like that? You can't focus your eyes on anything for about 10 minutes. But that's a 'good thing'.

Counting down. Glad the boys are having a good time in the States, but they must miss their friends back home. When does school start over there?

Lovin' your posts!

Ohhhh, it has been great having you in the good ol' USA, Tammy. Are you anxious to get back to your home in Kuwait? No doubt you miss your husband, too. So glad you and your boys have been having a great time. Thanks for sharing it with us. Susan

Thanks for taking me shopping with you. I'll take that little teal colored cupboard with the painting on it. In fact I see a lot of things I'd like, too. Diane

Hi Tammy,
You found some lovely items and it's always such fun to browse Antique stores.

We're already feeling like summer is at an end here as well, as Sarah has been involved in Cheerleading practices since the end of July and now this week, her days also include full-day Marching Band Camp at the High school in the 105 heat indexes. So, the schedule is already sooooo busy. :P

Hope you have continued safe travels.
Blessings,
Linda

I love browsing around antique stores. I'd go for the jar of buttons.

I didn't realize it had been so long since I stopped by to visit you. I just scrolled back and got caught up on your travels. Looks like you are having a fun-filled, busy summer. If I'd have known you were in NC I would have waved to you. Enjoy the rest of your trip.
