Antique Merry-go-round

Antique Merry-go-round

The weather in California was beautiful this past weekend. We decided to take advantage of the great weather and go to a nearby apple farm. Even though we missed the window for picking your own apples we still had a great time. They had a little antique store and I found something sweet for my mom. We ate pie with a huge scoop of ice cream and found some goodies in the store. My son had a blast climbing on hay bales and playing on an antique tractor while I watched and took in the sunshine and fresh air. I’m thinking a return visit is in order in the next couple of weeks.

Garage Sale Days of Summer

I absolutely love to garage sale! Sometimes you find squat but other times you can come out feeling like you won the lottery.  I love those moments.  The last big garage sale day I found a pretty green glass pot, a Homer Laughlin teapot, a glass soap dish, some pretty doilies, a side table, two glass lamps and a boogie board for $30.00. I totally felt like I won the lottery! The lamps and the side table were the best – $2.00 for both lamps and $5.00 for the side table. The side table came with a couple of little baskets too. Such a score! The little table was claimed by my youngest and he now has a Pokemon /candy/star wars theme going on with it. For now I’m okay with that, he has everything displayed artfully.

The teapot was such a pretty find and I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it.

I sent this teapot to my mom as a birthday gift and I included a little succulent to plant in the top. I know this will love lovely in her garden.
