A Love of all things painted

A little antique shopping

There is nothing better than visiting the Antique stores in our area. One nearby is called the Copper Possum - don't you just love that name? It is a really nice store - lots of room and so clean. I went with my good friend, Jane. She finds the neatest things in almost every booth, things I would just pass over - she sees. We spent hours going through each booth. I told myself before we set out on our visit that I would be good and only buy if it was something I really, really wanted. And on the most part I was good - but I couldn't pass up these darling baby shoes or the baby spoons. I really do not need another pair of baby shoes and for sure I do not need more baby or demitasse spoons, but the prices on these were so good - some of the booths even had 20%-50% off. Now the spoons will be painted and turned into ornaments for next Christmas and those little shoes - haven't decided what I will do with them but most probably will paint them. Oh, and I bought the little drawer in the picture for only $5 - not sure if it is from a sewing machine or what and it isn't detailed with any carvings but I liked its rather plain design - I plan to paint it anyway.

Now to other news - I will be doing a review for CSN stores (I have seen reviews and giveaways on a lot of blogs for CSN - a virtual store with everything you could wish for from baby to wall art and decor ) and I am excited. Check out their store - you will be amazed at all the things they carry. And I will let you know how it goes once the review is complete. It should be fun!!

Until Pink Saturday - have a great week yall.

    Another gorgeous share. Love the little baby shoes. They are so precious, I know where you are headed with those babies. I agree the little drawer looks like a sewing machine drawer. Just beautiful and I can't wait to see what you do with that one.

    Hope you have a gorgeous weekend sweetie. Thanks for the beautiful share. I will be watching for your CSN store giveaway. Love shopping though them.
