Treasure Hunting Today

The next Sunday Show and Tell will be on May 4th. The theme is a fun one! We are asked to show photos of our favorite places to shop and treasure hunt. You can see the details on Cerri's blog "Little Pink Studio." Feel free to join up !

I decided today would be a good day to get my "homework" done. I will save the store details for May, but I will show you what I bought now :). This is why they are my favorite stores ~ I never come home empty handed. Look at all these goodies:


A stunning Battenburg Lace Tablecloth ~ nice and large in size . . .

Antique & Vintage baby clothing . . . and a pink and white crocheted doily. . .
Lovely ruffles on this sweet dress . . .


Lace Collars, Embroidered Net Lace and Ribboned Lace . . .

Those pretty vintage hats we all love . . . . and monogrammed towels . . .


The cutest little floral buttons . . . and clear buttons with rhinestones . . .


a pretty flower pot (yes, I like green swirls LOL) and a little iron birdie for my garden.


I must say this is the most fun I have ever had doing my homework ! I will share the details of my favorite stores on May 4th ~ Show and Tell Sunday.

Hey Karen you mean I can now come out of hiding, been set up in your bushes for weeks trying to see where you go to get all your amazing treasures. Your actually going to spill the beans and let us see your secret haunts. Yippee!!! I'll need a map though cause you drive way to fast for me to follow. Love you new finds you have the best nose for sniffing out incredible stuff. Hugs Deborah
