Treasure Hunting and More

 Hubby and I went "treasure hunting" yesterday. We went to 4 antique shops and had lunch out. It was a nice day. He had put in MANY hours at UPS, so a "fun day" was in order. I have wanted this little State fair treasure since I was in grade school. She was even on the cane and in pretty good condition. She is now in my craft room!

Most of these are for the booths. The fan blade I may make into a picture frame. It's the "gold" piece in the middle with a compact on it. I didn't have a silver compact, now I do! A little addition to my collection.

 Hubby replaced the kitchen light as it kept burning out light bulbs. This one is a few inches away from the ceiling. I painted the gray plastic decorative ring. I think it gives it a little "charm" :)

Being silly on Christmas morning at my Mom's!

We had a very nice Christmas and hope that you did too! I missed my son, but had Chopper, his dog, over and that was nice.

Tomorrow hubby and I are moving to a better spot at Antiques MN. It's closer to the front of the store. We have 4 LARGE glass show cases to move...and all the goodies! It may take 2 days!!

Hoping that 2014 will be a WONDERFUL, HAPPY and filled with Many BLESSINGS for each one of YOU, NEW YEAR!!!

I had forgotten all about those dolls on those canes. Oh my gosh that brought back memories.
Your stashes remind me of our noses and glasses the little ones got for us. There is a picture on my blog.
Hope the moving goes well. So nice that your husband enjoys junking with you.
Happy New Year Deb.
