Treasures Galore and A Treasure Of A (New) Friend.....

It's true what they say "pretty is as pretty does" and let me tell you, Joanne Kennedy from Cottage in the Making is "drop dead gorgeous". It is rare to meet someone with whom you "hit it off" right off the bat and laugh and joke and agree with on so many things. We met for lunch and spent the day shopping, laughing, sharing, joking and we even made fun of this very rude woman who scolded us for taking pictures in her shop for fear we would steal the "secret formula" for the design of earrings and clothing sold in her "yuppie boutique"......(see Joanne's blog for more on that)......

Joanne had to wait for me to arrive as I hit a little traffic so she stopped at a yard sale and found some treasures that she lovingly shared with me. I love this two-tiered basket and of course it will be painted white.......

This adorable mini creamer & sugar bowl she picked up for a steal and gave them to me.....She knows I love roses.......

I mentioned to Joanne while shopping that I love silver and we found this pretty silver tea pot at the Salvation Army for $4.99. It is "Oneida" so I think it is fairly good quality. I really like to display these pieces around my home.

I found these lovely silver serving tongs (notice the fleur de lis pattern in the middle) at one of the antique malls and they were marked $10.00. I scored 20% off so it was a good deal (I would have paid full price for them shhhhhh)

Can't you just see some raspberry sherbet in this dainty little compote? That is what I saw and for $2.50 I had to say "I'll take it"!

These sweet little etched glass what-ever-ya-call-em were 2 for $3.00 so I grabbed them up. I could place a couple of very little candles in them but I may use them in my bathroom for my makeup brushes and lip liner......I just love being a girly girl!!!

Couldn't say no to this little soup tureen and shabby chic candlestick.........

We went into this dainty little tea room and gift shop called "Paris in a Cup" and I found a few gifts for my dear friend Tina, her birthday is in September......Both Joanne and I picked up the Romantic Homes magazine to drool over......

Found a little somethin for myself too......I love "big jewelry".

I cannot find one part about my day with Joanne that was better than the other because it was all such an adventure and a blessing to get to know someone whom I never would have met had it not been for God's hand in my life and my hand on the computer keyboard. Thank you my new friend, I look forward to many more outings and laughs......

You are to kind! I did have a lot of fun! Did you catch my remark about you not being the old fat pervert man that murdered me? I told my sister that was who you were. She didn't think it was funny. But I did.

I'm looking forward to the 16th. I'm sure we will have another fun day.

You take such pretty pictures! I love how you put the tongs on the plates and the little glass glasses in front of the frame.

I think they were juice glasses. Maybe??? I like your idea of putting make up brushes in them. It's always fun to have pretty and different things in the bathroom.

Big hugs!

I sure wish I could have been with you. You are both two bloggers I would love to meet! It sounds like you both had so much fun and I love all your treasures!

I read all about your day at Joanne's blog. What a great day and the treasures you went home with are wonderful. I love the soup tureen and the wire rack. Oh, I love the silver teapot too!
Glad your day was enjoyable.

Hi Debbie Kay!
Thanks for coming by and saying Hi! I've added your link as well and just realized we're in the same county. I'm a valley girl myself (no not that valley, the other one. No, not that one either...the other one!) LOL!

Debbie Kay,
I love your sunroom office space. I am still working on my projects throughout the house. I am planning a sewing/craft/office room and I was wondering what color you painted your office space? I love it! It looks so cheery and fresh. I also love all the treasures that you found on this post!

Sounds like you all had a great time and you found some real treasures. Love the teapot and the etched glasses.

Hi Debbie!
Yes! Joanne is the greatest!! One of these days maybe I will get to meet Joanne in person but for now she is one of the sweetest blog friends a person could hope to have! I feel like I've known her forever, don't you? I'm so glad you got to have such a fun wonderful day together. Wow! You found some spectacular things Debbie. I want to shop where you shop!
Have a great week!
Hugs, Sherry
