While Rebecca was digging thru some vintage jewelry...
I found this Antique French Book!
I love the color and the Fleur de lis!
It is an old school book and there is writing in all of the margins.
I also found these little pearl earrings that I thought would make great buttons!
on these tiny vintage carriage boots!
(they are for the Store's Christmas Event...so I will show you more later)
I also found 2 of these Antique pocket doors!
I took measurements and details and when my hubby went back to get them....they gave him a discount!
they are almost 9 feet tall!
I loved them because they will be perfect on my Summer house/ Potager we are working on.
this is the rollers on the tops
And the little door pulls
This little handkerchief is staying at my house!
I love all of the detail work on the corners!
You might remember from previous posts....I have a thing for handkerchiefs!
After an hour or two of some serious digging for treasures...Rebecca headed back home to the Windy City...Chicago!
Where getting coffee at Starbucks is not such a major event.
What? Did I forget to tell you about getting coffee for Rebecca each day?
She could not even believe that we live in a town where there is NO Starbucks!
How do we cope?....... Function?
I must admit...it can sometimes be a difficult thing.
But because I actually live between Tipton and Kokomo...(there's a Starbucks in Kokomo) I have no problems. If I need a fix, I head to Kokomo first.
But while in Tipton...we have to make a few sacrifices. We get our coffee from McDonald's!!!!
But just kidding Rebecca! None of us minded running each day for the morning and afternoon coffee runs!
Have a wonderful rest of the week!
I will be back soon with some new pictures of my utility room!
