Friday fun day!

What a fun day!  Ron, Nikki and I went out this morning looking for treasures.  We went downtown Tucson to a row of antique stores and oooh-ed and ahhh-ed over the wonderful goodies found inside.  I did come home with a few awesome finds that I'll feature in 2011 photos alongside new patterns.

Nikki and I love looking at the old hand painted plates and retro jewelry.  My grandmother left behind quite a bit of it that Nikki wears now and then.  She loves cut glass and big brooches.  I'm a jeans and boot kinda girl so all I did was admire the cases of goodies.

I forgot just how much fun going through the old stores could be.

After a few hours of being in and out of the heat we went to lunch where I looked forward to the iced tea about as much as the food.  I think it's 105 today.  Yuck!

Now onto business. . . . . . there will be a SAL on the LHN/CCN Yahoo group for The Family Sampler in just a while for anyone interested.  If you want to join you need to be a member of the group so head on over there using the link to the right.  You need to provide an email address that the moderator (Milly) can reach you at.
Wishing you all a nice weekend!


  1. Sounds like a great day out - look forward to seeing your "finds"

  2. I wish we had more antique shops around us. I'm just starting to enjoy spending time in them. I look forward to seeing all the treasures you found on your day out. Have a great weekend!

  3. Oh I wish that I could have gotten myself in some of those antique stores ;) Looks like some really GRRRR-EAT stuff!
    The pizza has me really wanting I was with you though!


Thank you so much for taking time from your day to drop me a line or two!
