A Few Little Treasures From My Day Trip

When my friends and I went to visit Richard at 
I gave myself a $20 limit to see if I could buy myself a little something.

I was able to buy myself 4 somethings

The first two I bought at Richard's antique store
for a total of $16
A little sterling and glass bud vase.

A wonderful Valentine planter!

sweet little face

Then a stop at Richard's friends Kate's Antique Mall in Louisiana, Missouri
a $4 purchase
A great little red Pyrex refrigerator dish

So, how could I pass up this adorable vintage red garden motif
kitchen towel? It was on $3. 
So I ended up spending $23.

These are the first things I have bought in 2 months.
I did go shopping today...out Pyrex hunting for my friends.
I did buy a few small things and will show you soon!

The red of course is going to 1515.
I have not been there since the first week in January, 
but next weekend I hope to go visit.

Have a wonderful Sunday!

Hi Ann! Oh, you did great for $23 dollars. I saw Richard's post and saw you having so much fun. I would love to visit his gorgeous home someday.
Be a sweetie,
