A precious gift from a precious friend
and a fun field trip!

I have to share what arrived in my mailbox Saturday!! The most gorgeous, very old book of sheet music EVER!!! Sweet Nita of Red Tin Heart was out antiquing, saw it and thought of me....bought it and mailed it!! What a kind, thoughtful thing to do dear Nita ~ I just love it, the graphics are wonderful and the sheets have the old patina that I love. I still pray for showers of blessings for you dear friend ~ thank you for thinking of me (((((hugs))))) to you!

Also ~ I went to the most wonderful antique store Saturday . . . Antiques in Old Town in Lilburn, Georgia. Let me just tell you, I fell in LOVE!!! This little store, well, not really little, was a sight to see. It was so up my alley, the truly old things, the thoughtful displays, beautiful dress forms, clothing, photographs, fabrics, books, baubles . . . I could just go on and on. Rowann, the owner, was such an angel and even knew who I was when I asked her if I could please take photos for my blog ~ I just have to share these with you. Visit Rowann's blog HERE and let her know how amazing it really is!!!!
















Thanks for going on my little field trip with me. Thank you Rowann for being so very sweet. I can't wait to come back!!!!

Wishing you all a peaceful, restful and blessed Sunday ~
xxoo, Dawn

It is always nice to be able to spend time in a beautifully decorated antique store! You are always afraid that you missed something and you want to look through it again and again. Sounds like a great time!

I love that place, but I don;t get to go very often. I think that is what makes it special when I do go.
When my kids were small, I would go to Back By Popular Demand to get their clothes. They always had the cutest stuff come in and I could always find dresses for Ainslie there.
Glad you had such a fun day!!

As always, I come away smiling after visiting you. The shop is so beautifully arranged. I saw so many pretty little things to put on my "wish list".

What a precious book Nita sent you. Never heard the song
"Ah! The Birds Are In The Wood", but how perfect for you!

Blessings!
