Estate Sale and Vintage Treasuring Hunting

I had a great time with Sweetie this weekend!
He is such a great guy following me around Estate Sales and Antique Malls. Holding things, searching ahead and letting me know the good spots.

We found a few things for our home, a few things for the Blossom Shop booth and some very fun jewelry bits for re-purposing. And yes, I admit, wearing myself!

Here is a sneak peek at some things I bought.

I get the whole day to play in the studio and do household chores so I am off to work and play!

enjoy the photos!

My Mad Hatter Tea Party

Come on in.
Now that you are here, the party can begin.
I have been planning and prepping all night
to make sure everything is just right.

But before we eat
we need to make sure our look is complete.
Something old, something new?
Something borrowed, something true.
Look inside the drawer to find
the perfect jewel, I don't mind!

Does your finger need a ring?
Something that makes you giggle and sing!

Now that your look is full of sass,
Check yourself out in the looking glass.
(Be sure to fall in!)

Now its time, let's begin!

Something to eat? Something to drink?
It's best to start with tea, I think!

Mmmmm, that's good! So very very good.
Let's follow it up with some tasty food.

Tomatoes on toast?

Fruit so ripe?

Let's start with cake!
It's more my type.

I am so glad that you were here!
You were such a great guest, such a dear!

No need to rush out,
stay as long as you care.
We are here all day with lots of good times to share!

Before you go, leave a note, something sweet for certain.
Then you might be the winner of this little token.
