Found.....good stuff!

Is this not the prettiest little girl ever??
I've always loved this old photo ~

I made a trip to Antique Griffin Wednesday and
added a few things to my space.
Plus I took tons of photos for the Antique Griffin blog too ~
Look at the treasures I found :)
I love old lace scraps....

Old books too....this one is a shorthand book!
For two dollars and some change, who can turn this down?

An adorable old baby photo and wonderful bauble ~

And the sweetest thing of all....
one lone doll bootie, just waiting to be loved ~

I'm keeping Clara today!!!
Brent and Emily are heading to the Atlanta Merchandise Mart to
add all new soaps to the showroom display....
the big July Market show begins soon!
Brent just freshened up the website for Shop Fun Soap too!

Phyllis loves you Dawn! That little crocheted baby shoe is so YOU! Love the image & that babble, that will be so cool on a piece of art. I hope the gang has success at the Mart this weekend, the new soaps look amazing.

Don't you just love it when you fine a little shoe all alone. I have several. And your treasures are awsome. Love the lacy things and paper. Well heck, I love all of it. You know I'm a hoarder and we like everything!!!

I'll keep positive thoughts going for the soap, thoughts like it will all sell and you will have to go back home for more.

Hope you have a great day!
Hugs, Pat

I hope the trade show does well, and they get lots of orders.

vicki said...

What a wonderful collection of vintage treasures my friend. You have a great eye for the most perfect treasures! I just know we will be seeing some of those in your next beautiful projects!


Vee said...

Had to see the project you're working on. It's always so much fun to see all the different ways an assignment like this will be interpreted. I know that you'll have fun with it!

Elizabeth G. said...

Hey, Dawn! Isn't that little guy in the chair a cutie? I wonder how long he stayed in that chair before wandering off.

Hey, question: May I use the photo of the little girl in the sidebar of my blog? I could provide a link to your blog. I just think she's precious. I could put "Compliments of The Feathered Nest". What do you think?

Is it unbearable temperature-wise where you are? We've had a super mild Summer so far. I think it's warming up now, but hopefully not too much.

Have a lovely, lovely day!

Oh, Dawn, every time I see all the goodies you're buying for your shop I wish I lived in GA! Anyone can tell how much FUN you are having with this!! I think it's just in your blood!
Happy hunting and happy selling to all the lucky people who DO live in GA and can visit your treasure trove of yummies!
Hugs, Diane
