A wonderful day!

It really was!!! It was cloudy and drizzly here in Georgia but it didn't matter...meeting good friends and shopping for goodies always makes for a wonderful day!

Tammy, Lee, Judy and precious Shelby met me at The Plum Tree Thursday for a fun day of shopping and searching for treasures. Cindy was so sweet to us and the store looked amazing as usual. I had to take a few photos to give you an idea ~

Here we all are! Look at Tammy's precious daughter ~ she was a real trooper letting us shop!

Here are my treasures from The Plum Tree....a few little pots, an adorable photo I'll have to share with you, a vintage umbrella to hang from the ceiling of the studio, an old book for $2, a couple of neat pants hangers and a snippet of lace....pretty good, huh?

We went to another wonder antique spot in McDonough, Planter's Walk Antique Mall and I found these goodies....a kitchen gadget that will be a great foundation for a piece of art, more lace and THE. BEST. FIND of the day..... a vintage photo album with beautiful floral pages sprinkled throughout ~ and I love the fact that it is falling apart!

We really did have a great day shopping and digging for treasures ~ and Friday Lee and Tammy head to the big Farm Chicks show! Have a wonderful time girls and please take plenty of pictures for us!!!!

I hope you have a wonderful Friday sweet friends,
xxoo, Dawn

Charlene said...

Looks like fun! And I have seen a photo album like that before. You will do wonderful things with all of it I'm sure!

Virginia said...

Dawn, what beautiful things you found! You have inspired me to go treasure hunting!!!

Lady Farmer said...

All of your finds are terrific! I especially love the album with flowers! But that "kitchen gaget" is something I have been looking for for years! My mother in law has wanted to replace hers ~ she uses it to 'chop' boiled potatoes for salad! If I ever get to Georgia, I will have to go to your favorite antiques places and perhaps find one myself! :~P
May your weekend be as profitable!

Karen Valentine said...

Oh, it looks and sounds like you had a fabulous day! Personally I love it when it's cloudy and rainy out...of course that is because it rarely is here!!! Have a wonderful weekend Dawn!

Love all your little treasures you brought back. What a pretty album. And the red book looks like a beauty. Have fun and somehow I know you will, Dawn.


Holly Campbell said...

So many wonderful things. . .It must have been difficult to only choose a few! Thank you for sharing the shop, and your finds with us.

Lovely discoveries!! It was a sprinkly, misty day here in my part of Georgia too.
And I'm going to an estate auction tomorrow--an old homeplace where the last heir has died. Sad to see the old house go, but maybe I can snag a piece of history.

Angela said...

I knew I would miss something good, ugh!!! Our VBS starts tomorrow and I am teaching preschool Crafts, lots of prep work or I would have been there with you guys. I will so be there the next go round!!

Desires of the Heart said...

What a GORGEOUS photo album you found!!! It's just amazing and you will get so much use out of it. I'm sure you'll create just beautiful things with it. Hope life is slowing down for you a bit and that Noah is almost completely healed. Have a great weekend! Linda
