Week End Treasure Hunt

The weather was gorgeous here in Eastern New Mexico over the week end,     so there were quite a few yard / estate sales happening.

I would never pass up a white ironstone duck pitcher for $2 

50 cents for a set of  Cauliflower salt & pepper shakers

$2 for a pretty spring table cloth and matching napkins

$5 for a set of brass shish kabab skewers     I loved the farmhouse look of the skewers and plan to use them as plant stakes instead of skewers.

I visited a few antiques stores........enjoy the trip with me......

Guess what city I was in!    Lubbock Texas,   home of the Texas Tech Raiders!

The only thing I bought at the antique shops was this sweet cow.......

I am so glad you joined me on my week end treasure hunt!      Let's go again soon!

  5. Penny, Your pictures make me want to take a road trip and go antiquing. I love the cow and duck. It's so much fun to look and think where you could use some of these wonderful treasures.

  6. You always choose great stuff

  7. Penny, I love all your "finds" and it re-inforces my love of pink although you have loved pink for longer than I have.

  8. I took my boyfriend to an antique shop and he was not expecting to enjoy it. There is a town here called Aurora, OR which is filled with antique stores. He was hard to get out of there!

  9. I think the cow you purchased was a wise choice! I love cows and have a little collection of them in my kitchen. I grew up on a two different farms and on the first one when I was five-eight-years old we had black and white cows. They had such beautiful eyes. I loved them and still do.

    Those fabric carrots were pretty cute, too. Such fun to accompany you on your antique store travels. Thanks for taking us along!

  10. The lovely tablecloth and napkins were a wonderful find. And the price! Enjoyed visiting the antique shops with you. I'd love to do so in person!
