Hello, friends!

I can't believe it has been so long since we have posted!  We have been so busy getting things together for Christmas as we are sure you have been as well!  The thrifting around here has just been terrible!  We decided we must stop at some antique stores!  We have goodies to show you!  Another thing we have yet to share is pictures of our recent trip to Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania, that will have to wait for another day.  Oh and we almost forgot to tell you about a hutch we recently bought on Craigslist that we are painting at the moment, can't wait to show you that too!  LOL See...this is why we haven't had much time to post!!

This is the only thing we recently found while out thrifting.  Two peas in a pod salt and pepper shakers...Just like us!

















This tractor we found at a local antique store.  We are hoping to find the wagon that goes with it or a wagon that fits just right! 


















I saw this apron at one of the antique stores we stopped at on the way to Longwood Gardens.  I really loved it, and I decided to get it later on since we were planning on going back there.  Anyway we ended up not having time to go back!  The next day my aunt called the owner and had it sent to her.  She gave it to me as a gift!  How lucky!!

I love those two peas in a pod salt and pepper shakers! And that apron is great! Thrifting is so much fun! By the way, I love the photo of you and your siblings at Christmas...that is a very silver tree!! You all look very close in age...must have been wonderful and crazy at the same time at your house!

Bonnie,

We agree, thrifting is so much fun! We only wish there were more thrift stores in our area. My father loved tinsel, so we always had tons on the tree. My siblings and I are all close in age, a year to a year and a half apart. I am the middle child of 5. It was very much fun. I had a very happy childhood, and I am thankful for that everyday.

Happy Holidays,
Laura
